When i was 17 i started to have major anxiety attacks. Out of nowhere I was feeling like I could breath. I felt the impending doom. Over the years it has progressed. I started having palpitations at 19. I am 25 now and i lost my job almost 3 months ago and my anxiety skyrocketed. I was an emotional mess. The next day my body temp when sky high and my throat was really sore. But then the day after that I was fine. Confusing! I have really been literally suffering these past fews months. The impending doom feeling, palpitations every now and then, the dizziness, the sweaty hands, the head zaps, the easily frightened, gas bubbling in stomach affecting my cardio area. I am so glad I found this support group. I have a big release off my shoulder to know that I am not going through this alone.
My unique anxiety symptoms.: When i was 17 i... - Anxiety Support
Hello & Welcome
I don't think your symptoms are unique but very typical of how anxiety can make us feel
We do get days when we feel physically ill with no explanation other than anxiety even though it can be hard to believe it can make you feel this way but it can & it does
I am sorry you have lost your job at the moment this will not have helped but while you are looking for a new one you could turn it into a positive to try & get your anxiety under control
I see you are living in America & I am in the UK so not up to date with what support you have over there for Anxiety but we do have various therapies I wonder if these would be available to you as they do help so many of us to learn where our anxiety started , what triggers it & how to deal with it
Keep talking on here as well as Living with Anxiety which I see you have joined as lots of members will relate to you & knowing you are not unique with how you are feeling but there are so many feeling just the way you do really does help as now you have found this forum you will soon realize you are not alone
Its a pleasure

It can be quite sometimes but usually someone will come along & say Hello
OMG you sound like me... I have everything you say you have. i just recently almost lost my mother, and after 2 months she came home on my birthday. Ever since I have had anxiety attacks, pain all over, Weird Brain zap and pressure like I'm going to faint. It's hard to talk to my girlfriend who doesn't get it.
I have experienced many different symptoms and have had dizziness and heart palpitations and brain zaps before. also panic attacks and sweaty hands and like 50 other symptoms of anxiety. I get that impending doom feeling too, when you feel trapped but you do not understand why.
I am dealing with at of those same things and situations!! I found this site a couple months ago and it really helps me feel not so alone.
