      I am basically the chest or arm if im awake its my TOS, if i awake with heart racing, breathing hard and chest tight thats an asleep fladhback panic attack.

      My arms hurting was one of my first anxiety symptoms, and it made me scared I was having a heart attack, it still does honestly, but now I know that’s one way my anxiety presents. It’s like a dull aching in my upper arm/shoulder area. Sometimes both arms, sometimes one. Or my arms just feel weird and weak. Very scary and just makes the anxiety worse :(

      This was one of my first signs of anxiety as a child. I always complained my heart was racing or “skipping beats” and I had full cardiologist work up - completely normal. They said it was likely anxiety and when my heart would race (for normal reasons - exercise, excitement, etc) I would hyper focus on it and then have somewhat of a panic attack causing it to continue to happen. Once they explained it to me - never happened again. Just one of the many signs of my anxiety early in life lol

      There is so much i want to do and other things i need to do, but ugh, when its flared i just plumb cant do for me. But if someone else needs me its like i can just push a hold button push it away from me and pop up right off to help the other person.

      Anxiety is so frustrating. I feel like it is such a waste of time.

      Chest pains and body and joint pain are symptoms of depression and anxiety💕

      This is what I’m dealing with currently, and as I’ve always heard women rarely even know they are having a heart attack it makes me even more anxious! But I also have medical/health anxiety and agoraphobia, so I’m just stuck with the feelings.

        @Ksmi yes that’s what I’ve heard. But I just keep on praying and going on. That’s all we can do

          @KAP40 yep! Same! And I had covid pretty bad last may so I’m always worried there’s some lingering effects from that. Then also I’m wondering if it has to do with the phase of my cycle I’m in as well, there are so mainly possibilities.. I bet there was less anxiety before google 😂

      @KAP40 Yes! I also get shaky legs which makes me believe I’m going to collapse, it’s an awful feeling.

        @TheRealAvellana dude! I ran out of gas IN A DRIVE THRU one day, and I tried everything to get help but ended up having to walk to the gas station under the highway, my whole body was shaking, everything sounded weird, and every step felt like my knees were buckling, I was like this is wild! I gotta get home! So scary!

      Yes, and I’m getting tingling too! I had the worst tension headache the other day? I thought I was having a stroke . But I’m sure it’s my anxiety! Feel better! Exercise that improves the muscles and lessens the pain.

      For me my heart races, I get the throat closing also I feel like I need air, noise irritates me and I feel like I gotta get away. Oh and sometimes I get gittery.

      I always get chest pains and my throat closes up on me - I low-key feel like I'm having a brain aneurysm when my face heats up
