Hi there. I am new here, just found this forum after googling. I am a 45 year old female and have always suffered from general anxiety and also health anxiety. I've always been able to keep it under control but recently I've had a few health issues (now resolved) and it's spiralled out of control. For the past 4 days I've been in a constant state of anxiety. I can't concentrate on anything, my heart is beating faster than usual and keeps flipping. My head feels like it's in a vice and I also keep getting head zaps. I feel shaky and I feel like my breathing isn't coming naturally. What can I do to get myself out of this? I've been exercising as usual and that does help. briefly. I've tried meditation. I literally feel like I'm going mad or that I might drop down from a heart attack any minute. These symptoms seem to get worse over the course of the day and are bad at night. Please can anyone help? What can I do to calm down and start to feel normal again?? Any advice welcome! Thank you so much!
