TRIGGER WARNING IN CASE ANYONE SUFFERS FROM THIS SYMPTOM.....
So, I have been doing a decent job of dealing with my anxiety the last couple of weeks. Mainly because the symptoms haven’t been EXTREME, like they can/have been. Today I haphazardly noticed that I can see my pulse pulsating in my left hand in that soft area by the bottom of my thumb. The area that is usually deemed a “pressure point”. I automatically started freaking out. Spiraling thoughts of “why is it in the left but not right?” “Is there a blood clot somewhere causing it?” “This cannot be normal because I’ve never noticed it until today.” “Do I need to go to the ER?” Etc.
So here I am, asking you guys if you’ve ever seen your pulse near your thumb? Should I be worried or is this an anxiety symptom?
I also noticed my neck has been feeling pinched(which I fear is a blood clot 😩) and some of my finger/toes have being feeling irritated and/or tingly. I have never been diagnosed with anything but low vitamin D, generalized anxiety, and panic disorder.
I just don’t want to go to the hospital. I really don’t. So has anyone experienced this before?
