WHICH DO YOU RELATE TO ? GAD,PD, or/ BOTH ?

TriggerPoint
TriggerPoint

Panic Disorder:

Sudden overwhelming fear

Palpitations

Sweating

Trembling

Shortness of breath

Sense of choking

Chest pain

Nausea

Dizziness

A feeling of being detached from the world (de-realization)

Fear of dying

Numbness or tingling in the limbs or entire body

Chills or hot flushes

Panic attacks and panic disorder are not the same thing. Panic disorder involves recurrent panic attacks along with constant fears about having future attacks and, often, avoiding situations that may trigger or remind someone of previous attacks.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder:

Restlessness

Fatigue

Difficulty concentrating

Irritability or explosive anger

Muscle tension

Sleep disturbances

Personality changes, such as becoming less social

Generalized anxiety disorder is excessive and unrealistic worry over a period of at least six months. It is associated with at least three of the above.

I'd say more panic disorder for me with a couple of gad symptoms, interesting actually as I always say I have panic attacks but reading this panic disorder is definitely spot on

You ARE NOT Alone ~*

suffer from a few of them not them all thankfully still even suffering from one is enough.

Definitely both. It’s hell.
