I'm a 23 year old female from Georgia. I've been reading everyones posts for a while, but finally decided to join up. I think I suffer from anxiety as well. I've had some traumatic events happen in my life and the last few months have been hell. Like most people here, I suffer from the same symptoms: heart palpitations, restlessness, severe fatigue, lack of concentration, constantly thinking of dying of some disease (cancer or heart failure), dazed/dizzy, headaches, eye pain, infrequent menstrual cycle, etc. Everytime I get a new symptom, I constantly worry that I'm dying of some new disease. Seems like a lot of people here were first tested for allergies, as was I. It showed I have mild allergies, but I dont think they can explain my symptoms. Ive had several panic attacks where I thought I was going to suffocate/pass out. Luckily both happened at work (at least I wasnt driving). My doctor has yet to diagnose me with anxiety, even though I keep telling him that I think I have it. My blood pressure is normal, so I think thats why he doesn't think I have anxiety.
Hope to make some friendships here and help others cope with this. See you all soon.
