Racing heart , hot sweaty hands and feet tingling hot sensation through my body nauseous hallow pit in stomach and feel like my mind is going and going an I don’t even know what it’s thinking about I’m freaking out I have shortness of breath it’s so awful. I also have feeling of dread numb feeling and just not happy I hate his I feel like my life is never going to get better and I live in constant fear and panic. Is this normal because every time I feel like it’s something serious.

Yeah it is total normal when you have bad anxiety.i feel like this everyday.sometimes all day,its really tough.

If you can,try to do some deep breathing.or put some headphones in and listening to some relaxing music.i find anything that even distracts me for a minute helps.remember you arent alone x

Thanks so much it’s so tough I’m sick to the stomach from it

Yep just crappy anxiety. Lol 😂. Carry on. I get that 20 hours a day. You get used to it after a while. Like a sore back. Lol 😂.

You will be fine. Breathe deeply.

Yes I do get very short on breath, that’s because I’m thinking the worst And thinking it’s far more serious issues, when it’s just anxiety and it can’t hurt us. Take slow breathes and try to think positive thoughts.

It’s awful feeling. Just write down what your feeling so next time you will know what it is your experiencing and if it happens again you can be sure u will be ok. Best of luck

How long does the episode last u?

Hi ,have you tried slow deep breathing techniques to stop your mind racing

I do try that but when it is so bad it’s really hard to not think it’s not something serious

Quieten your your mind,listen to some calming 🎶 music ,

Ugh it’s the worst feeling I get all those same symptoms it really does suck and just seems like it’s never ending!!! Just try to do some self talk and breath! Idk if your religious but I usually pray or read my bible.... and if you have any Xanax I’d pop one of those lol

Yes every time I think the same thing! But you also need to tell yourself I’ve been through this over and over I’m going to be ok! But I know sometimes that’s even hard to believe but your ok it’s just your mind playing tricks because if something serious was wrong then it would have happened already 😫 I know this really sucks...
