What is your worst symptom?

I was just wondering what everyone would consider to be there worst symptom of anxiety? It's quite obvious that we all have a lot of the same symptoms. My worst symptom would most certainly be lightheadedness, and feeling like I am going to pass out or something from it. If you wanna share yours, that would be great.

Nausea definitely. And intestinal spasms *shivers*

Re: What is your worst symptom?

I hate noticing my heartbeat when I'm nervous. Also getting lightheaded bothers me also.

Re: What is your worst symptom?

Definitley the dizziness 24/7. Second would have to be feeling my heartbeat in my head all the time. I think I see a pattern here with the lightheadedness!

Re: What is your worst symptom?

Definately it's the heart palpitations and skipped heart beats. They really get bad when I'm stressed and they scare the heck out of me. I've been checked out by a cardiologist and he says their nothing to worry about, but they drive me nuts!!!

Re: What is your worst symptom?

My feeling of unreality. The worst is when that is combined with nausea and dizziness. Or when I feel I just need to get out of somewhere and that if I don't leave that second I will go crazy.

Re: What is your worst symptom?

I have the nervousness and palpitations, spasms, stomachaches, and such...but the worst symptom I have is psychological: Fear...being afraid of situations or what my symptoms may be...or what will happen to me...once i control this factor, my other symptoms subside very much...I guess we all have fear of many things as anxiety sufferers...

Re: What is your worst symptom?

I never heard of anyone that has the burning arm sensation. I'm glad I don't have that one it sounds awful.

But yeah, I agree that fear is the worst of them all. Fear and doudt have ruined my life....if you can call this half-life a life.

Re: What is your worst symptom?

Definately the feeling that Im not all there,that Im in a dream and the different perspective I have while having an attack,I know nothing has changed when Im having one but it sure seems like it.I have control issues so I need to be 100 % there all the time..........

The lighheadedness,diziness and nausea are the worst too,I hate the feeling that I have to lie down all the time.


Anxiety sucks

Re: What is your worst symptom?

I'd have to say it's fatique and dizziness. I control the nausea with motion sickness bands. They're a real help actually overall and now I wear them all the time. When I take them off, I notice the symptoms more prominently.
