Has anyone had a feeling if impending doom?

Today I have been feeling like my nerves are all on edge through my entire body, kind of like being restless but and nervy but through your whole body. I have also had this feeling of impending doom all day like something bad is going to happen. Not sure if it's anxiety or if I should get things checked? Wanting to know if others have had this? Feeling very alone right now :(

I have felt like that in the past when I was in a bad way. Maybe go see a doctor and get some Meds, might help you out.

My doctor won't subscribe me meds as I am doing really well without them as this is just a set back but I will get through this and I will be ok. It's just you'd to know if others have had it or should I be concerned. Thank you for your response.

Anxiou2befree, the feeling of impending doom you describe is a very common sympton of anxiety disorder. It happens because when our nervous system is over sensitive it magnifies our fears ten fold and we expect the worst case scenario to happen. This is quite normal for anxiety sufferers and should not worry you. Just accept it as normal for the time being. When eventually you recover from anxiety disorder and your nerves become pacified these thoughts/feelings will cease. You'll be fine.

I had this feeling today, it is boredom that makes me feel like impending doom. Have got nothing to do for the whole day and is like waiting for time to pass and I felt time is passing slow and I starts to get breathing problems again, tingling sensation. Is anxiety the cause for the boredom feel or is another way round ? Confused

I feel like this almost every day. It happens during the afternoon and I feel like the whole world is collapsing in on me, especially when I'm out walking and there's lots of people outside. It is very scary and takes a while to go.

I don't know how to deal with it. I take walks outside and I feel on edge and people walking by makes me feel like I'm bad and awful or being punished. So what's the best way to deal with it? I take clonazepam and olanzapine everyday as medication to deal with the symptoms but I want to be medication free and symptom free.

You have to push through it and just keep yourself busy. I recommend going and seeing a psychologist :)

I am having psycho therapies soon and I continue taking my olanzapine and colanzapam (when things get worse). I think I have the extreme anxiety that is really bad and you have to go out on walks just to ride through it.
