    Heart Palpitations

    This is the second day in a row that I’ve had a heart palpitation. I had one yesterday at 9pm and tonight at 12:31am. They last a split second but I feel like I can’t breath and now it’s starting to worry me. But I’ve notice they usually only happen at night and night time is when I’m having bad...

    Have you ever questionated your gender identity?

    I've been quite anxious these past 6 months over anything my mind would pay attention to. This past weekend I question came to my mind: what if I'm trans? what if I'm not who I thought I was? I got so confused to the point I didn't know who I was. I was extremley anxious about that 'what if...?'...

    Waking up at night shaking?

    So this happens kind pretty often, not every night but at least 2 or 3 times a week and it scares me so bad. I will wake up out of my sleep or if I’m woken up, I feel like I’m literally vibrating/shaking inside. It’s so weird to describe because it’s not normal shaking.. it’s more of an intense...

    Heart Palpitation Anxiety, I hope someone can relate!!!

    Hi everyone. I’m 32 and have struggled with anxiety for most of my life. I stick to a decent enough diet, exercise for 45 minutes every morning, and avoid sodas and such and just stick to water. I told my new dr during a physical sometimes I get heart palpitations and he sent me to a...

    Balance issues from anxiety...?

    This has been going on for weeks now. I’m constantly dizzy and lightheaded and have this “swaying” “on a boat” feeling. It happens sometimes while I’m sitting but extremely bad when I’m standing up and walking. I stopped taking Zoloft about a week ago and now I’m having bad nausea and constant...

    Anxiety at Night

    Hey! It’s 1:39 am in PA and I’m having what I believe is another bad anxiety attack! I was laying in bed watching YouTube, and I started falling asleep and I felt like a heavy weight on my chest slightly, but I think the way I was laying was hurting my back. And that feeling stressed me out, but...

    Trembling throughout the day

    The last few days i have been having a trembling and vibrating feeling in my body again. I experienced this same symptom a couple of months ago but it hasn't happened in awhile and now it's back. I even wrote about it on here once before. It basically feels like my body (particularly my legs)...

    Why do I feel uncomfortable in my body??

    I haven’t left the house in a month now due to panic attacks and anxiety. The past little while I don’t even like being awake because I feel uncomfortable in my skin. Like I’m always anxious that I’m sick. I hear my heartbeat a lot, I’m always sweaty. I’m too anxious to even shower. I’ve always...

    Anxiety

    For some any time I have anxiety instead of just feeling anxious, my chest gets really cold like icy hot and I keep going in waves of freezing to burning and feel like I can’t breath and tongue tingles.

    New here - Feeling drained. Anxiety & Ocd

    Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post. So I apologize if it isn't. Basically I've had anxiety and ocd since I was 15 years old, I'm 27 now. I get horrible ocd to the point where I can't function unless I do something to combat the triggers I feel. I also have horrible hypochondria...

    Advice for Car Anxiety

    I'm 19 and have avoided getting my driver's license because of the anxiety I get in cars. I've been in quite a few minor accidents and scary situations so I would rather do just about anything then get in a car. It's even taken a toll on most of my friendships because I hate the car rides...

    Hi there, introduction to me; I’m a 21 year old girl and my diagnoses are GAD, panic disorder, and bpd. Lately I can’t stop thinking about/questioning what everything means and why things are the way they are and it’s really freaking me out. It’s not just about the meaning of life, but...

    a really bad day :(

    Hi all, This is my first post on here. I've had health anxiety for as long as I can remember now, especially emetophobia. Today I had probably one of the worst HA days in a long time. It started with a headache, which normally wouldn't worry me so much, but recently there's been an outbreak of...

    Anxiety at Work

    Hey, I’m new here. Just wanted a place to join a group of people who understood and appreciated current struggles I’m battling. Recently I have felt very under attack at work - I often get shouted at for things I’m “doing wrong” (mostly things that are out of my control or genuinely aren’t my...

    Just One Thing After Another

    I can't get a break. First I've got body (back) health problems, then up comes period problems, and then comes teeth problems, and now I might have eye problems as well. Each problem comes with the stress of calling/making appointments, driving to new places for tests, and the growing paranoia...

    Scared to go out at night

    I recently signed up for this program downtown in my city but it goes to nine pm. Maybe I am crazy because I live in a pretty safe city, but I feel like am going to get mugged or killed or raped or something. It starts in October and I am scared to do it. I feel like I will go once and then die...

    Fear of being noticed by others

    So I have noticed, the majority of my anxiety happens when around other people. Strangers, mostly. I am only comfortable around one person, my soul mate, but even around my family I feel so uncomfortable. I even have a difficult time eating or getting up to use the bathroom. I get so tense and I...

    Anxiety about past mistakes

    Hi everyone. I fear for the future because of mistakes I have made in the past. I feel like I am not capable of doing anything in life now. My mind is always fearful with the “what if” and I cannot shake it. I want to let go of the fear and just enjoy the present, but I can’t find a way. My mind...
