On a daily basis I wake up with a feeling of dread, feel sick and have the "butterfly" sensation in the pit of my stomach. I have hot sweats and feel lightheaded. My senses often feel dulled and I find it difficult to take in my surroundings. I feel tired all the time and sometimes get this wave of exhaustion where my legs feel weak and I think I'm going to collapse. This causes me to feel panicked which makes me feel worse! I don't enjoy going anywhere anymore because I am scared I will collapse whilst I'm out. I try and tell myself it hasn't happened yet and it is just my anxiety but in that moment I feel so panicked it's difficult to think rationally and deep down I don't I think it can just be anxiety making me feel like this and I could be seriously ill. Any pain now I get in my head, chest or abdomen sends me into a blind panic. I just feel scared all the time. It also makes me feel so alone. Don't know how I'm going to overcome this as I have no idea what the trigger was or what is even causing me to feel like this.
