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.

Greetings all. I m curious what the outcome would be if I quit Trazodone. I went on it after brain surgery in 2002. My 2nd under the knife, 2 other times prior underwent radiation procedure. Also between 2000-2002 times were dramatic, Mom long time suffered from same thing(nf2), died a month prior to the 2002 surgery. After awaking from that surgery and becoming paralysed entirely on left side of face, I was in a panic state of mind. That panic started a year prior after my second gamma knife surgery. Didn t realize back then, but thinking back, there was a few times where to panic came out through speech. Moving on..I was put on 25mg of trazodone, didn t do much, or last long. Then 50mg. That did it, and I ve been on it every since. I started to feel the panic/anxiety in 2010 and have been dealing with it ever since. I had two minor facial procedures (eyelid surgery) in 2012, and that kind of tip me over the boiling point. I had 2 full blown panic attacks. There were caused by abdominal pain. Very very painful. I ve always thought it was ulcer, but i m not so sure, it s almost like the sink is clogged? all the gas, acid, everything just gets stuck and doesn t move. I had it a few times when i was 17. After a year+ trying to figure it out, I quit coffee after supper and that stopped it. It took about 8-12 months to get over the affects of those attacks. I d always find myself tense, my hands would always clench up, or grabbing my shirt without even knowing. Same goes with other muscles. Only thing that remains is when I do something like house work, moving furniture, mow lawn etc. , my lips will be very red. the panicky feeling is under control for the most part. But after those attacks it just feels not that far away. If i ever need surgery I m gonna definitely seek max trazodone or something. with all this said, is trazodone even working any more? does the body over time develop resistance against it. It didn t calm me down one bit when I had those minor surgeries, or every day since 2011. what im wondering is if i quit, will the panic increase and become unbearable or no change? if i do need more surgery in future I will seek help, but nowadays manageable. I wondering if the 50 mg is still helping out. Mike

Hi I am a 43 yr old woman whose had my tubes tied for almost 6 years. I only have my right ovary and fallopian tube left. I have pcos and I have always been very irregular. I had a period 51 days ago. I went to the restroom and when I wiped there was fresh blood, I assumed I had started my period. I put a pad on and I went to the restroom later and there was no blood on the pad or when I wiped. The next day there was a faint pink on my tissue one time and then nothing else.

Hi. I am a male. As long as I can remember, i have experienced a sharp, burning chest pain that occurs randomly. It does not radiate and usually only lasts a few seconds. It is not brought on by exercise. I also occasionally experience palpitations. Sometimes, it feels like my heart stops and skips a beat and then continues. I also can feel my heartbeat sometimes and it beats fast and hard. My usual resting heart rate is about 103. My BP is about 128/76. I have panic attacks also. Occasionally, I feel lightheaded which usually only lasts for a few minutes and is followed by extreme anxiety. I sometimes get nauseous and have irregular bowel habits. Sometimes I am constipated and other times I have diarrhea. I have seen my doctor and had blood work and a EKG done. Palpitations did show up on the EKG but my doctor says they are not serious. Some people have suggested I have acid reflux. I seem to have some symptoms of MVP but I was never diagnosed with it.
