Hi Daisy

Yes that sounds normal in an anxiety state, try not to inflame the situation with wories about your health, anxiety gives alot of different pains and there all harmless. there horrible, but harmless.

Keep off the alchohol, as it will make your symptoms a lot worse.

Not sure if the docs given you any meds,

ask about therapy, to help you understand whats going on, and a way of dealing with the panics.

Wish you well
