Hi, I just googled 'where did my anxiety come from' and this site came up. It started for me about a month ago. It starts with muscle tension, dizziness and nausea. No warning signs and just hits me without notice. I try to manage it by pacing and generally trying to distract myself but I hate it and it scares me because I don't know why it's happening to me. It's happened in the school playground a few times, supermarket and at dinner in a restaurant. Today it was at home, I just had this horrible sense of dread that today lasted for a good hour and would have gone on longer had I not forced myself out of the house. Guys it terrifies me. I'm 42 with two young boys and I'm not myself. I've had a full blood test and everything is fine. Didn't check hormones so I figured it could be early menopause because I had fertility treatment? I just don't know what's wrong and that makes me worry when I'm not having an anxiety 'attack'.
I feel I've gone on too much but needed to just say how I'm feeling as I can't bear to tell anyone.
What to do
