Hey, really new to all of this however thought what harm can it do. Over the past 2 weeks I've been suffering from anxiety(?) it started a day in work where I was speaking to someone and as I went to swallow it was as if my throats was closed and wouldn't allow me, From that my heart started racing and I panicked, This happened a few times within the hour then in a meeting later that day my heart started pounding so hard I thought I was going to pass out and I had to leave the meeting, went to a quiet room, whole body was shaking however I calmed down within 15 minutes. Sinse then the swallowing thing happens daily however I feel I can manage that with breathing. I'm normally a really confident outgoing girl part of the social committee in work and always the life and soul. Today in another meeting with new colleagues we all had Togo round and do your normal introduction name age how long with the business etc (somthing I normally like to do as very chatty and proud of where I am in the business) however the closer it got to me my heart started pounding harder and harder until I thought I couldn't breath, I managed to get through my brief intro and tried to calm myself down with breathing slowly.. all through the meeting I was screaming inside for it to be over and anytime the focus came to me a rush of anxiety came over my whole body, terrifying! I'm not sure what's caused this, I'm not particularly stressed about anything, work is busy and have a lot going on but who doesnt. Don't have any money or family worries and have 2 holidays coming up within the next 6 weeks.. what's happening to me?!
