I have had this anxiety for 6 months and once I was able to cure myself and get back to my old life. I faced my fears. But suddenly 2 months ago everything started all over again when I was alone! The shortness of breath, heart palpitations and chest pain. Those three symptoms really scare the hell out of me! And they are there all the time and this causes me to panic! The more I feel the symptoms, the more I feel panicked. I can't stay alone because of this, I feel like a sudden heart attack is waiting for me. I can't turn my brain off! The bad thoughts always in my brain. I know all this in my head and try to think good things (and I must stay when I do this, I feel relieved and some of them go) but they come back out of the blue. I feel vulnerable. I'm so sad all the the time. I feel like something's wrong with my body can't convince myself that all because of anxiety. This goes on and on and I know that this is a vicious cycle. I have recently tried to face my fear again but this time the symptoms are so adamant and won't go away no matter what I do. Please give me some advice. I try to distract myself like watching movies or something and it works but only temporary. The symptoms are so real, affect my life so bad and scare me even though I say myself that there is nothing to be scared of.
