I have really bad anxiety that has been acting up a lot the past few months, and have been put on meds that help but off and on I feel like my stomach and sternum area is vibrating like a cell phone, I can feel it in my sides and back too now and then.
Also I've noticed a pulsing in my stomach which I've read is normal and fairly common with anxiety (the abdominal aorta) but i've also read the pulsing could be a sign of an aneurysm which terrifies me and my anxiety doesn't help. I'm 21 and a female and it seems like it'd be unlikely I have that but I don't know what to think. Is my anxiety really doing all of this and if so how can I help it? I've been to the doctor so much lately I'm just running out of energy.
I think I had what was a panic attack last Thursday. I was laying on my side reading something on the computer and all of a sudden my right arm started to feel weird, like it was really light or something and it just made me panic. My heart started racing fast, I got shaky and felt like passing out a few times. I took a valium which calmed me down but ever since I've still been shaken up by it. I've only had one other panic attack in my life and I was like 11 then but I don't remember it feeling like this especially for days. I'm 21 now and don't know what to do. I cant go to the doctor right now really so id appreciate any help.
It's Tuesday now and my arm still feels odd, like it's lighter than my left. I feel lightheaded sometimes too, I don't know how to explain it. I don't know if it's all in my head or what because if I think about it too much I feel like I can weird myself out into another panic attack but I get up and snap myself out of it. I'm pretty fine when i'm not thinking about it but it's hard to stay focused on things long enough and get it out of my head. I know that I'm obsessing about it constantly which I fear is what's making the effects still linger and make me feel worse but I just don't know what to do to get rid of the feelings.View Thread
Also I'm really jittery and my nerves are just awful, I keep fearing because of my arm it's something awful. I felt perfectly fine before the panic attack Thursday, I wasn't worried about anything and I don't understand why it would have just come out of the blue like that and keep me feeling this way. Thanks for any help. View Thread
