I posted on here last week about my current anxiety state/health issues.
I rang my therapist who was really supportive and came out to see me on Wednesday. After discussing everything with her she reassured me that she thinks it is all down to my anxiety. I have weak legs that feel so heavy especially on the top half when i try and walk, also i get numbness and tingling in my left arm and shoulder. I also get back and chest aches/pains which really feels like it is my heart or something. When i stand up my heart races and i get this weird feeling in my throat like my heart is there. I just generally don't feel well and feel very weak and spaced out.
Also i feel much worse after waking up or if i wake during the night...its a horrible feeling that is hard to explain.
My therapist explained everything to me and she said she thinks it is all caused due to high cortisol levels in my blood.
I wondered if anyone else suffers from this and could help me?
I have suffered anxiety for many years now but have never experienced these feelings..its mainly my chest and back that is concerning me and i won't see a doctor due to a big phobia.
I hope people can relate to me and offer some advice.
