Hard to cope

I want to start out by saying I'm new to this site, and I don't know how to properly explain things. Anyway the first thing I want to talk/ask about is a problem I have. In short, anytime I think about going to work or an appointment I get a tight heavy knob in my chest, it feels like I'm suffocating. If I try to force my self to do what I have to do it guess worse till the point I feel near pain. I've had this issue for years and I don't know what to do about it.

  • Sounds like social anxiety but there is many symptoms. You need to speak with a psychiatrist to get properly diagnosed.

  • Have you ever had this issue addressed in all these years? As joel1980 said, it could be a number of things. I have agoraphobia which makes me feel like that as well as GAD. You really need to be diagnosed so that your therapist can guide you in the right direction.

    I wish you well.
