Hi and yes when you get sick. Your mind and body with this hell of a thing. Tou start thinking about it and you get the nerves working. And I know it's hard but when you start felling bad. It can grab u up then you feel bad and make it worse. What I do when this happens. I feel it comeing I stop a second take a deep breath.

Yes. I had it last three times I had a flu. It's really funny how it works. When you are sick, your mind is so absorbed with the flu symptoms that you forget you had anxiety. When your body begins to feel better, your mind looks for another attachment so it grabs to your anxiety thoughts again as they are within quick reach. As a test, try working on Sudoku or another mind game. See if you feel anxiety symptoms while at it. If it's something new and exciting, I will bet you won't.
