Thanks Paul for suggesting this forum.
It's interesting to see how people experience different feelings. My troubles often come up when I'm feeling worried about something, when I overthink, health anxiety, etc.
I can get:
-very tense and painful muscles
-crying (usually I hardly cry, but if feeling anxious has gone on a long time... my body just can't contain the emotions)
-panic attacks (I think they are. My heart races and hands shake, I can usually recognise when it's happening)
-short of breath (I have vocal cord dysfunction too, which is where the vocal cords open and close at the wrong times. This flares up when I'm anxious)
-possible headaches and dizziness/lightheadedness (getting an MRI next week just to be sure, my doctor thinks I feel like this because of being anxious, then of course my health anxiety kicks in)
-obsessive thoughts and actions (eg. googling symptoms over and over)
-seeking constant reassurance from family
Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this.
