Hello. I'm in dire need of support and input. I have had anxiety since my early teens. This then led to Panic Disorder. I was diagnosed with anxiety at 18. The symptoms as you are all aware are terrifying and right now I'm terrified that I'm dying. My anxiety and panic are back full force the last couple of months. I haven't had any triggers or events to exacerbate this. I'm experiencing this scary tingly rush throughout my body which starts in my head and spreads to the rest of my body. It's internal. Very frightening. I cannot think of the words I need to say, I constantly wake up with numbness in my arms. This overwhelming feeling of death is imminent is paralyzing and I get this terrifying sensation frequently. It comes out of nowhere. I look at my daughter and think that moment will be that last time I see her. My latest symptom is a very tight upper chin that tightens even more when I speak. It feels tingly as well. It will not go away. It's getting difficult to speak because it gets tighter and feels like it will go numb. My biggest fear is that I'm going to suffer a stroke. I'm 34 and life shouldn't be like this. I'm also afraid I have MS or possibly cancer due to looking up the symptoms about my chin issues. I seriously think I'm dying and nothing seems to help. I'm on an antidepressant, a benzo as needed, and it's not helping me. I'm so scared. I'm terrified I will be found dead and leave my 8 year old daughter. I can't speak to anyone about this as they do not understand.
