Hi everyone! I'm a 37 year old guy from Holland. I have anxiety and ocd all my life with various symptoms. After I got my first Moderna vaccination 9 weeks ago I began to develop new anxiety symptoms. For example I get hot flashes on my upper back, feeling really warm but als cold flashes! Whenever I go outside I start sweating and I get really cold, and the cold doesn't go away. So while my friends are getting warm in the sun I sit beside them and get colder and colder. very strange, does anybody else knows this symptom? I went to my acupuncture guy and he said its not from the vaccine, thats what I was afraid of first. He thinks my anxiety got worse because I maybe was afraid of the vaccine. Since 2 weeks I also have terrible panic attacks. Anyway does anyone have the cold symptoms when dealing with chronic anxiety? thanks!

that happens to me. cold to the point of shivering like crazy when i'm anxious. could be 80 degrees outside and if something triggers me i will start to shake and feel cold. hot flashes also happen to me quite often before and during panic attacks.

Thanks for the reply! Yes its such a weird sensation. I never had it, started few weeks ago and I have it all the time. whenever I take a shower and get out of the shower, shivers of cold. and outside all the time. I think I have a flare up in my chronic anxiety or something that makes my body find new sensations to bore me with... so much fun haha

This happens to me too, usually when my anxiety spikes even higher and I'm pre-panic attack. I'll feel really cold and I'll start shivering. If the source of the distress / anxiety / panic subsides, and I calm down again, I'll instantly warm up.
