What can anxiety do to you

I went to the hospital because I felt like I couldn't breathe, and I had a big knot on my head but don't remember bumping it. Can anxiety cause you to do stuff and not remember ? Can it also cause you to feel like you're not getting enough air in your lungs ? But be perfectly ok? They did a chest X-ray and checked my oxygen. Everything was fine... I hate this so much. I almost want something to be wrong so I don't feel crazy

Anxiety has a fairly profound effect on your body, and causes a lot of strange and surprising symptoms. One symptom that often surprises people is that anxiety can cause forgetfulness.There are issues related to anxiety that can lead to memory loss and a general inability to remember things, and unfortunately as long as you live with anxiety you put yourself at risk for this forgetfulness to get worse.

Anxiety is self-sustaining. Anxiety causes a variety of physical symptoms that can be incredibly frightening. These, in turn, cause more anxiety, which ultimately leads to more physical symptoms.


thank you, that is exactly what happens, it causes something and then makes something else happen that i freak out about.
