Hay guys, I'm rob live in chorley northwest, and I suffer quite badly from anxiety, from an out siders view I can come across looking quite normal, but on the inside I can feel very breathless at times, and what comes with the breathlessness comes, dizzyness, the feeling of not being able to cope with what's going on around me, I have this inner worry too about my heart not working propaly( I suffer from heart palps and irregular beats) I have had stress tests on my heart and everything is good I've been told so as far as I can tell my anxiety is to blame for these irregular beats and palps. My anxiety is becoming to rule my life as I worry about being on my own outside as these pannic attacks just come from nowhere, if I'm on my own out of the house I can be fine one minute not even thinking about when the next anxiety attack will come and then all of a sudden I will start to feel nervous, then breathless(yawning to try to gasp for a breath) then ill feel as if I can't breath at all but really I can its just the inner feeling that is horrible and at the time feels like its never going to leave, I get slight pains in my neck/jaw and arms, (not a heart attack) its just in my head. But when I feel these my mind plays on them witch courses me to get worse, when I go shopping with my girlfriend I will feel fine walking their but pretty much as soon as were 10 or so minutes into shopping I can start to suffer from my anxiety, the feeling of not being able to deal with the people around me (noise of people) and I will become breathless. I do try and go through breathing tecniques but sometimes that just does'nt work, I have been proscribed proprananolol 40mg and I take that for treating my palps and when I have these episodes so usely take one when this happens witch can either work or not, then my last option is to take myself away from the situation and go outside to fresh air. I could talk for ever about my anxiety, The thing is I'm scared this is going to rule my life forever, I have a little baby boy on the way and a girlfriend I love and adore, I don't want this to spoil my life as it has been doing for so many years on and off. Currently I'm unemployed but I am seeking work as I want to support my family but the fear that this anxiety could course me to lose the job is lingering over me. if anyone has any ideas of what I could try to help me that would be great. And if you've read all this I hope you can relate to me andhopefully be able to help me, Cheers, Rob,
