A few days ago I was very" down". I started crying and couldn't stop. I had trouble breathing from crying too hard. A few minutes later I got a nose bleed. got up to get tissues and was light headed and tingling i my arms and hands. I took 2 advil ,laid down on the couch was in a cold sweat and chills. I covered up with a blanket and finally talked myself into settling down. My question could it have been an anxiety attack or something more. I am a 70 year old woman,very active and walk 2-4 miles a day depending on the weather. I am not obese.
