    I have experienced something very VERY similar. It was indeed severe anxiety combined with a grade 1 concussion but I have had that very experience with that very concern. With effective therapies and my psychiatrist increasing my anxiety medication temporarily, it got better in a few weeks.

    i was also hungover after a two or three day binge so thats probably a big factor but it was so scary

    I was also diagnosed with Raynaud’s which can be triggered by… Anxiety! That was my explanation for the discoloration in my fingers and rapidly changing sensations in my hands and fingers. Hang in there and breathe!!!

    I’m confident being hungover was a factor. I highly recommend limiting alcohol consumption with anxiety, depression and mental illnesses along those lines. I’m not here to judge you or belittle your experience, I am simply trying to be helpful and share what I know and have experienced first and/or second hand. Take care ❤️‍🩹

    Anxiety manifests so much physically that people sometimes forget that, did it eventually pass and you’re back to normal?
