Hello and welcome. I've been suffering from anxiety and panic for nearly three years now. A number of things happened to me which started them off. At first I didn't really no what was happening to me, I felt like my blood was bubbling. Some days I think I have it under control and other days I don't and other days I REALY don't.

Since I was 14, I'm now 31, mine started after a pizza delivery person spiked our food what was being delivered, I had a mass panic because I didn't know what was going on, ever since that day I have never been 100% right

Thats what we are here for :) I have lots of experience in how the mind tricks you when u when u have anxiety, I read most of the posts on here and say to myself "not that old chestnut" because I've seen it all before.

I wouldnt say what has happen to you is minor, if you are naturally prone to anxiety, been taken out of your comfort zone into a "strange" place can trigger it like anything else, what ever the trigger and how ever long you have suffered with it, we will almost all have the same sort of unpleasant experiences

For awhile I thought it began in June of last year, but then I realized I've had anxiety surges for four years. I never realized me not wanting to go to class, feeling shaky and stuff was anxiety until after my first panic attack and the dirt hit the fan.

For me it started when my grandmother passed three years ago. She raised me so we were very close. Since then I've had to deal with what I think it's health anxiety

It started for me in November 2014 but wasn't diagnosed as anxiety until January. No idea what set it off. I think a build up of things. My dad died 7 years ago then my partner lost his mum last year too. It's been horrible dealing with anxiety. Defiantly up there with the worst thing I have ever had to deal with it.
