I would like to know If these are symptoms of Anxiety

This has been happening for 5 days, i would like to know if these are symptoms of Anxiety. I have been feeling nervous the type of nervous when you have to take a test something like that and i have felt like my heart is beating faster than normal, but not all the time. Yet when my girlfriend felt my heart she said it feels normal. So i guess its all inside. Im 19, dont know if that has anything to do with it but i figured id let you know. Please let me know what this is if you can, thank you.

Hey, Have you been thinking hard about something lately? Have you had any tragedies in your life in the past month. Is something coming up or are you afraid of someone. These are questions you should ask yourself. Or maybe you just miss someone. Or, I know it might sound silly but your love for a person might be growing. This is a little personal, but I can relate to you. After me and my bf slept together for the first time we went camping, and I had to go back home afterward. The entire night I was crying. I woke up with my heart beating very fast. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. What you have can be anxiety, but it simply can be the love you feel for someone. YOU WILL BE OK. Plus it's all in your head. If you feel shotness of breath, go outside, do something to distract it. Don't just sit there and go through it. That's a big mistake that a lot of people make. If you do have anxiety or pannic atacks, in time if you work on ignoring them, they go away. The mind is a powerful object that can do a lot of good or a lot of damage. And don't go to some damn doctor. All they're going to do is try to come up with some kind of sickness for you. Like I said YOU WILL BE OK.

I am an ER nurse and I had one incident where I felt like I was going to pass out and now since then almost every time I am assisting in a bloody or invasive procedure or even cleaning out a large open wound I get nervous I m going to have that feeling again and I usually will get light headed, feel hot and sweaty and heart will feel like it s pounding. I have never actually passed out so don t know if this is just anxiety or if I will eventually pass out. Any suggestions of how to get over this? Have you heard of anyone doing hypnotherapy for situations like this?

Hi, I’m a 26 year old female. I have noticed that for several years I have an excessive amount of energy and need to go out and do something when I wake up, but as the day continues, I lose total motivation. If I don’t do something right in that moment of energy, I will most likely end up doing nothing. I don’t know if this is related to my anxiety and depression (although I am not full on depressed, I am just as frequently hyped up as I am depressed) or something else. I have never been tested for any kind of attention disorder but I am wondering if this is possible. I also procrastinate on tasks, such as schoolwork, until the very last minute and get distracted easily from it. Other times I get really focused (usually because I am at the end of a deadline). I also have sleeping issues. I will often stay up throughout the night, sometimes being ok with a couple of hours of sleep and other times sleeping 10-12. I know I can’t get an official diagnosis, but an opinion on what it sounds like will be helpful.

Hi, I am feeling extremely odd. I have anxiety and am on an anti-anxiety/anti-depressant. I just do not feel like myself. I feel as though I am really not here, yet I know I am. I do not know how to explain it correctly. I do now know what to do.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
