hi, I am a 22 year old female and have recently lost my brother (he was only 29) since losing him I havent been the same person. I have recently been told I have severe anxiety and i am literally suffering with SO many symptoms and i keep thinking i am dying or there is something seriously wrong with my health... the pains just seem too much for it to be "anxiety"

drunk dizzy feeling

balance is all over

blurry vision

brain fog

CONSTANT chest pain in centre & left side

pain and shooting niggles in left armpit and shoulder blade

sore back

so tired but just not sleeping at all

body keeps shaking inside even when i dont feel anxious

shooting pain under my left breast in ribs

burning in my stomach

the list is just endless... im sure you get the idea, please tell me this gets better because its taken over my life

@Orangeade hi, do you suffer with all this too? Where are you from?
I am on propranolol at the moment but it’s not stopping the pain x
