So I have this problem where I just forget to eat or just cant be bothered to eat, I'm also a really picky eater so sometimes I won't eat anything coz I don't like anything that's in the house so just go hungry. And my questions is can hunger cause anxiety attacks? As last night around 4am I felt hungry but forgot about it and decided to just sleep but I couldn't so watched some films. Around 8am when I finally decided to try and get some sleep I got this sudden feeling or dread or fear as if my whole body went numb and I thought "oh god I'm gonna die" and it past but left me anxious. And that's when it hit me that I was so hungry, my stomach almost hurt and I felt nausea in a way like starving and I just said whatever I'll eat after I wake up but then the chest pain started and anxious thoughts and slight breathlessness and not being able to fall asleep I finally got up to make some food and I felt so weak and unbalanced as if I was gonna fall. So now I'm just sat here thinking how could I be okay one minute and the next feel like I'm gonna die. And was that cause by the lack of food?
