I've suffered from anxiety attacks for several years, not sure if they're panic attacks, felt dizzy and panicky. Recently my son started high school and I stopped doing the school run and things have got much worse very quickly. I shake from head to toe when I leave the house. I drive and feel uneasy and dread traffic lights because as soon as I stop I feel the panic getting much much worse, then relieved a bit when I set off again. My heart pounds like it'll come out of my chest. I know I should see my gp, but, I feel like I can't go out of the house, never mind sit in a waiting room 2 stores up. Are these panic attacks? Am I agoraphobic? Even daily in my home I feel anxious, trembly and have a resting pulse of 120. Am I going mad??? Please help me.
