I've had the same thing.. just breath through it ok.. I know it's easier said them done, also you could have a pinched nerve in your back or neck that you don't know of, that's what

I read an article a couple of weeks ago and it stated everything that panic and anxiety does to a person body and it was pretty remarkable to be honest with you because every little ache and pain that a normal person feels people with a disorder as we have it's 10 to 20 times what it is

I experience this quite often... I always feel like I'm having a heart attack... I think I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder, that causes this...I also, as yourself, suffer from bipolar disorder and severe panic attacks... Shallow breathing can cause numbness, which anxiety is prone to do... Anxiety can cause all kinds of symptoms... It's definitely no joke... Keep in mind, as hard as it is, they are harmless and can't hurt you, they will pass eventually... Trust me, I know it's easier said than done, but just fight it, and it will pass eventually.. try to focus on something other than what you're feeling, again I know it's easier said than done, but with practice you can accomplish this... Just take it easy, don't get to mad, sad, or even happy.. just take it easy, and you will be okay... Build yourself back to normal. It woulnt be over night, but you are going to be okay, and will be back to normal, just take it one day at a time, and be easy on your emotions... All anxiety is, is overwhelming adrenaline that is on steroids... Harmless emotions at their best
