Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Anxiety disorders can manifest with not only psychological symptoms but with a variety of physical symptoms also. Tingling, numbness, hot and cold sensations, etc. are common physical symptoms of anxiety.

You have not clearly mentioned which physical symptoms are bothering you and specifically what your "worst fears" are about. Anyway, it is good that you are seeking professional help from a psychologist. Do continue to engage in therapy and put in motivated efforts. If your anxiety is severe, then you may also additionally require anti-anxiety medication to reduce the level of distress and suffering. Pleas discuss about this with your doctor.

Wish you all the best.

However in addition you would also require specific anti anxiety medicafion and psychthdrapy for the same. Hence I would adviser you to undergo a thorouvh psychiatric evaluation. Hope ylu find the infirmatjon useful.

Hai atmsheridan,

Anxiety attack, fear of some danger going to happen, significant dysfunction.

Is this Anxiety is Continuous or episodic ?

If episodic how long it lasts ?

Does it have a Crescendo Decrescendo pattern ?

How frequent that attacks are ?

What happens in between the attacks ?

Panic attack can be due to variety of medical conditions.

You may need to get your ECG ,Thyroid function tests, Complete blood count , blood sugar tests done .

If all found to be normal and there were no medical conditions could be found out during examinations then with available information you have probably Panic Disorder.

Do get panic if found to have Panic disorder !

Because it is almost a quite treatable condition . your Psychiatrist may advise you a SSRI drug and give appropriate Psychotherapy . you will be all well in few weeks.

My Best wishes !
