  • Hi,

    Firstly, have you contacted your doctor, and did they diagnose you ?

    Have you had anxiety before, or treatment?

  • Hi

    Many things can trigger anxiety , the flu you have had , which sounds as you had it bad , could have caused you to feel this way

    I would have a chat with GP , check you are still not suffering any side effects from the flu & tell them how its left you feeling

    Let us no how you go on

    Welcome to the site , keep talking , you will get lots of support
