Mine would be the light headed dizzy feeling! If I could throw something away right now that would be the first to go!!

Yes the dizziness starts my anxiety up every time.

Sunshine002, definitely the head feeling.

I'm the same. Had every test going.

Chest pain.....Every other symptom has gone. This one is hanging around. I've been battling for almost a year, but feel that I'm making positive steps everyday.

That one is a tough one! It always makes me assume the very worst! Congrats on your progress πŸ™‚

This question is EASY for me to answer!

Right off the top of my head!

It's.....That feeling of overwhelming sadness...the sense of impending DOOM! As if "I".......am the ONLY person left on Earth, with no hope of another person EVER being seen again!!

Just lonely....πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

Falling dropping sensation

I hate the dizziness feels like am going to faint. If I didn't have that life would be a lot easier.

It's a nightmare πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜ 

Yes it scares the shit out of me tbh that's the worse feeling for me and being off balance when I stand to long

The constant worry that something is wrong with my heart!

This weird breath thing that I fight constantly.

Yes! I would do anything to get rid of the breathing problem

Mine comes and goes in severity. I just think I have really poor stress management skills. I'm also terribly out of shape.

Mine would be the unsteady and loss of balance feeling, it's awful, I only get 100% relief when lying down

Me too I feel like I'm walking on a boat all the time. I would also chose to be rid of the awful shaky nervous tremors inside my body that just happen and I don't even think I'm feeling anxious.

Dizziness or constantly feeling on edge x

Absolutely hate the dizziness 😫

Head pressure and neck pain for sure. It brings on the panic attacks in the first place! I like this question and I wish I could just make it disappear like that!

#1 would be the headaches

The crawling, vibrating feeling I get all over my skin. Horrendous!

Yes I get this too!

I seriously concur!

yes that's what I would throw away as well

The feeling of total uncontrollable panic, like I'm going mad


Just thinking about the dizzy.. weird head feeling. Do y'all think this might be due to fatigue? Just being tired from stress etc?
