Hi for the past 5 months I've been suffering from anxiety that I keep telling myself is not possible to be just anxiety. I feel like whatever triggered this made me such a nervous person... last night I was watching a motivational clip online to try to calm my tension and nervousness that I get every night.. And out of no where my boyriend jumped or twitched which would normally not bother me. But ever since I've been having this weird nervousness I guess it really got to my nerves and I jumped so high and had pins and needles on my feet and got super tense and scared as if I were about to go into shock or something. I felt like my reaction was so intense to a stupid twitch. I'm scared to think how I'll react if something bad actually happens to someone or scary happens how will I react?
I've been trying to deal with my anxiety and so far during the day it's not as bad but at night I'm fighting my nervousness and weird sensations in my body to fall asleep. I do also feel like my breathing is a little shallow but my main concern in how jumpy I am and how tense and nervous I get over a little surprise that would have never scared me before.
I'm 24 years old I used to drink almost every weekend before my first anxiety episode happened which was pretty severe but I'll post about that on a different post.
Anyways I've quit drinking for 5 months but symptoms of nervousness and uneasiness don't seem to want to go away completely yet
I changed my diet
Don't watch anything scary (because I can't anymore I get all my symptoms back if I do) which is really annoying but it happens.
I'm surprised my boyfriend still loves me..
I've changed so much I'm
So uptight and nervous about any feeling I get and always feel weird or something and I just want to sleep without being scared that somethings about to happen to me.
I don't get heart racing symptoms or chest pains ever so sometimes I feel like it's more a neurological thing than just anxiet but I really hope it's not..
Someone please tell me this is normal or something thank you
