So as the thread states this is for everyone to day what symptoms they get, how long they last and how long in total or on and of you have had them
I think this will be a good way for us all to relate to how we feel and know that we're not alone
So mine are
Chest aches and pains- on and of for the last 6 years
Shortness of breath again on and of for the last 6 years
Hot flush when I am in full panic mode followed by nausea and feeling confused
And just a general worry about my health for the last 8 years

All the best guys

Hey! I am sorry you are experiencing these things. I think this thread was a great idea.
The symptoms I feel are either every other day or once every 3 days or so..
I experience loss of appetite
Severe Nausea, light vomiting
Dizziness
Swollen Tongue
Heart Palpitations, fast heartbeat
numbness on one side of my body
the feeling of doom, like I might die

When these things happen I truly believe I am having a stroke or heart attack, but I am only 28. In the moment I truly believe I am going to die. Its always brought on by a very stressful situation. My father is in active addiction and I live with him, and my boyfriend has been abusivev for a long time now. I know that it's just a panic attack but IN the ACTUAL MOMENT, there is no rationalizing with me. I called 911 about 2 months ago because I believed I was having a stroke. I felt so dumb when 3 hours into the ER they told me it was a panic attack!! :unsure:

I cope by drinking a lot of coffee. I stop being able to concentrate. I also write to friends a lot. I stop working, I eat something, I walk, take a break from what i am doing and generally go on social media or play a video game. I try to write out what I am feeling. That one helps a lot, it keeps me in higher cognitive function instead of emotions.

I get a lot of stress, related to anxiety, which includes a feeling of pressure. Rushing. The anxiety is something like there is something wrong when nothing is wrong, when I can't identify any problems. It happens when I work. I am prepared for something to go wrong.
