Jolts Of Adrenaline! PLEASE HELP!

Hello,

I'm 18 and I suffer from Anxiety. I was just wondering what I should do about my current situation.
I have had anxiety since the age of 15 and I relatively know how to handle it. I was just wondering about whether I had other problems to worry about.

So over the past 6 months, I have found that I have an external hemorrhoid and I got anxiety about it (Thinking I had colon and stomach cancer.) naturally with the anxiety, I haven't been to the Doctor's about it. I was feeling nauseous for a few days then it would go once my mind was taken off of it. It hasn't really returned. So I put it down to anxiety.

Next, I got some small back pain, and some pressure headaches, I developed anxiety about this (Thinking I had brain cancer or a tumour.) - A friend of mine calmed me down and told me I was being stupid, I no longer get them. Mainly because I'm not worrying as much, so I put it down to anxiety.

My latest problem is that about a month ago, I was getting lightheaded every time I got up from bed, so I looked it up and thought I had low/high blood pressure, I also saw that it was related to heart problems so I got even more worried (My grandad has had a heart attack, but he used to smoke. My mother has had two heart attacks, but she smokes 15-20 a day. I don't smoke, don't do drugs or drink.) - Now that I'm thinking of heart problems, I am getting small pains in my arms, I used to have to take deep breaths but don't know. The arm pains only seem to come when I'm thinking about the problem, as did the deep breaths. I weigh roughly 278 pounds and am not very healthy when it comes to excersize. Now the latest symptom I'm experiencing is a jolt of adrenaline/excitement when I'm thinking about it. The lightheadedness is barely there now and the symptoms only come when I sit and think about the problems, not constantly.

Is there anything to really worry about? am I worrying about nothing? Or could there be something more to this than my anxiety?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Jolts Of Adrenaline! PLEASE HELP!

I just started having anxiety/panic attacks a few days ago, and my arm also start to feel dead or hurting, but this is only when I'm having an attack. I've never had jolts of adrenaline though but I'm a new memeber to the family so...just like everyone around me seems to tell me, and what I am getting used to: Calm down, see if this is normal with the anxiety attacks and move along...
