      I go dead silent and then I begin to twitch while hyperventilating and crying. What helps is when I'm being held tightly like a big hug.

      With me I begin to panic then hyperventilating and then sometimes if its bad enough I stop breathing and just hold my breath till it goes away

      Heart rate increases, tightness in my chest, jitters and fidgeting, being lightheaded or feeling faint, nausea, indigestion, hyperventilation, fatigue, sensitivity to stimuli like sound and light, headaches. Lots of fun stuff

        @Justinerosexx dude the depersonalization is so bad. It really makes it feel like you are in a waking nightmare

      mines mostly chest related symptoms. my heart starts racing, i get palpitations, and my chest feels like i just did an intensive workout. if it’s really bad i’ll get all of the above plus being hot, sweaty, pumped with adrenaline, extremely weak, dissociation, feeling like i’m going to faint, and feeling of impending doom.

      The adrenaline rush, shakiness, heart palpitations, tense muscles, sometimes nausea depending on other factors like when I last ate.

    • wise

      550d

      during acute anxiety I can physically feel the adrenaline being squeezed out of my adrenaline glands and rushing through my spinal fluid. if it's something that's triggered my PTSD then I usually just dissociate for a while and don't remember anything lol

    • MissSunflowers

      550d

      Severe dissociation that last for days or weeks

      Shaky arms and legs are the worst symptoms I have but I sweat, get a lump in my throat and literally can't speak without sobbing when I'm really anxious

    • joyjoytsak

      551d

    • joyjoytsak

      551d

      Hard-core adrenaline, heart rate up, sweating, fainting. I'm like one of those little ladies from old school movies, hand on my head passing out.

    • HeidiJ

    • juliecarlstan

      551d

      Varied, getting more severe up to and including grand Mal seizures. If this is a question for you please seek out the earliest treatment options you feel comfortable with, anxiety compounds and grows so quickly.

    • Jyn

      551d

      Chest tightness, dizziness, clenched jaw, nausea, tunnel vision, disassociation, shakiness, intestine spasms and diarrhea (also have IBS), breathlessness, racing heart, numb hands/feet. During my worst panic attacks these all happen. With normal anxiety it's usually less intense and no tunnel vision or disassociation. Good luck to you! Anxiety blows 😔

      • joyjoytsak

        551d
