Hormone problem?

Does anyone else think that their anxiety is linked to hormone/chemical problem? I get nervous all the time and I'm starting to think that the anxiety is triggered by a problem within me rather than an external factor. I get anxious about everything, and I'm starting to wonder whether the anxiety happens first then I attach the feeling to a problem. Rather than the problem causing the anxiety - if you follow.. Does anyone else feel like this or has noticed something similar? I keep thinking I should go to my doctor again....what do you think?

  • Hmm. I am so convinced my anxiety has nothing to do with my thoughts But rather hormones or chemicals (adrenaline) going haywire and sending wrong signals and wrong times. I also noticed I am extremely sensitive to caffeine.. As in, I cannot have a cup of tea or two hours after I have an adrenaline rush/panic attack. Have you ever figured this out?
