Hi everyone, I have read endless amounts of information on the internet since I got this but I just have so many questions.
I got anxiety about 5 weeks ago out of the blue. It started with palpitations at night. I have had and still have a really hard time believing that this is due to anxiety. I definitely agree with my doctors that I have anxiety NOW but am not convinced my body is alright. Even though I had several ECGs and blood tests done and they were fine. I am 23 years old, 60 kg. I enjoy drinking on some weekends and don't exercise regularly but make sure to lead a quite healthy lifestyle.
My symptoms are tight chest, heavy breathing, tingling chest, palpitations, dizziness and they come and go.
Can anxiety symptoms start out (for the first time in your life) of the blue when you are not feeling anxious?
Can anxiety start off with just physical symptoms?
Is it normal that anxiety symptoms just come and go whenever the hell they want?
Even when you are feeling ok or even good?
Why do these symptoms just overcome you and stick around for a bit (anything from an hour to several hours) and then go?
What tests do I need to get done to definitely rule out a problem with the heart/something else?
