  • My anxiety started when I was 19. Ask your mum to take you to a counselor / therapist who specializes in anxiety. It's not enough for your mum and others to tell you you're fine. With anxiety, you just don't believe it. A therapist who specializes in anxiety will help you cope with the anxiety and put things in perspective. You are not the only one who feels this way. Physical symptoms cause anxiety, and anxiety causes physical symptoms. It's a vicious circle. My therapist had me keep a journal of what I thought would happen (faint, heart attack, die in my sleep, etc.) and write what actually happened (didn't faint, have a heart attack or die in my sleep). It helped me to see that everyday I had the same symptoms, and they were never fatal. Have hope. 

  • It is a good idea you have to get checked out by the doctor, just to rule out any medical issues.

  • Hun...calm yourself down...turn on some meditation music or look up positive affirmation videos. I know it is very scary when I first started my panic attacks...I did call the ambulance...I was terrified. After I understood what they were and after many EKG's , heart test, blood work, 3 ambulance rides later...I discovered that I am going to be okay. It's scary, but I will not die. Try to get a therapist they really help.
