Severe shaking in body, nausea, increased heart rate, whiteness in hands, face due to fear of work. Suggestions?

Hi im a 19 year old female and for the past 3 years I ve been having the same problem. When I wake up in the morning my body is severely shaking and I can t control it. I m still alert and responsive but it just shakes. I get a feeling of nausea , increased heart rate , my hands & face turn white, my breathing gets heavy, and I get this overwhelming feeling of fear. This only happens on days I have to go to work because when I m home I sleep perfectly fine. It s become hard to even accomplish the smallest things. It s taking a toll on me and I just want to know what it could be.

welcome to health care magic

It seems from your description that you are suffering from "panic disorder" which is one of the anxiety disorder and characterised by intense anxiety attacks associated with impending doom. However, you need consultation with a general physician once to rule out any medical etiology. For that, you might need some investigations.
You have the following treatment strategies for panic disorder-
1) Drugs like SSRIs (Paroxetine, Sertraline etc)
2) Behaviour Therapies
3) Relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation etc

Hope it helps
Wish you good health
