I started getting unbearable anxiety this last year for the first time. Mine is mostly before being in public situations (class is the worst) but sometimes I will feel anxious even before “good” events. My stomach hurts, I get cold and clammy, and it’s hard to breathe. I’m really nervous about how I’m going to feel before my wedding!

I haven’t posted in awhile, but saw this and wanted you to know that you’re not alone! For the first time in my life, I was diagnosed with anxiety about a month ago and spent a 2 week period freaking out, with chest pains and other symptoms to boot. It totally sucks how what’s going on in your life and in your head can affect how you feel physically, but the best thing to begin with is probably to quit worrying about it! Easier said than done, of course.

I’ve been exercising more and laying off caffeine, which is also supposed to help. My doctor said that if it happens more than once every couple of months, I should think about talking to someone (like a counselor/shrink type of doctor), so I’ll pass that advice on to you as well. I work with a girl who takes medicine every day for anxiety and still has attacks sometimes; on the other hand, for me it just lasted for a short time and went away.

From what you said, it sounds like maybe social situations are a trigger for your anxiety? I’ll be praying for you and hope you start feeling better soon!
