hi binkynoo that sounds rotten and I am in a similar place.Have just rung up to arrange a GP callback via my work health plan and am already wound up about even speaking to them. Cannot face going through a load of backstory when I feel so rough. But want to feel like I am doing something to help myself and reassure myself.

Now of course I'm terrified that they tell me to go to A&E just in case, because then I'll be there for eleven hours because they quickly decide you're not dying and put you to the back of the line...but don't let you go argh.

If you don't mind I'm listing my symptoms for you not the doc so I can just read them out when he/she rings.

Nausea, painful waves of nausea and wind. The runs sorry! Tightness in upper back. Pains in arms. Freezing cold hands. Hot body (but temperature is fine I checked). Travelling dot of pain like clot waiting to happen. Obviously pounding heart. Also yawning and tiredness like I could just pass out. Shivers, but also hot sweats.

It does all sound like anxiety doesn't it!


Later. Spoke to phone-GP and he was excellent. Told me travelling dot of pain not indicative of anything. The rest we worked through and confirmed most likely is my existing anxiety flaring up because of work and other stresses in my life. So reassuring!

I feel so much better. Why can't my own GP be so non judgmental and efficient?

Anyway. Sorry to blurt all this on here but was just feeling very alone like you do with this horrible anxiety.

I hope your day is getting better and you got some rest. It is v hard with children because they don't understand and of course you don't want them to. If you can get some time to yourself to snuggle up, watch mindless telly or read light hearted book (recommend Jeeves and Wooster) keep warm and comfort yourself in whatever way you like best, then that at least might help get you through until you can contact a doc.
