I have terrible anxiety stemming from fear of becoming ill after a difficult year (that's the long story I won't give) but anyway... I'm new to this whole thing and currently waiting to see a counsellor who I have an appointment with Tuesday
I guess the worry is always with me, even when I'm not directly thinking about it, so is t possible that I can feel anxiety related symptoms 24/7 because I'm always aware of if even when I'm not thinking 'oh no don't get ill, avoid germs and people' in my mind, I'm always conscious of it and it is my every other thought. For example I was just in the kitchen packing my bag for work tomorrow and just felt so flushed in my face and hot... I wasn't feeling directly anxious but I sometimes get that randomly? Could it be a side effect of anxiety? I also have near constant heartburn and IBS related issues, could it be they occur so often because Im so aware of my fears that my anxiety - although not obvious anxiety attacks, causes these symptoms even though I'm not in a state of panic? Even when just sat watching tv and stuff?
Grateful for any advice
