I get a burning sensation all over my body as if someone as just set me alight. I then blackout. It is very scary. It is anxiety/panic. You can get it checked at your doctors if it is really troubling you. Hope this helps. Take care.


I have the exact same thing. GP told me it's because the blood rushes to you head when you anxious even subconsciously. Also all the muscle around you cranium tighten too. I still get it now when I am anxious xx
