    New to anxiety talking

    I've known for some time that I am an anxious person but have never spoken to my GP or been diagnosed. The past week its become unbearable as although I've been told by the GP I have torn a muscle in my chest I keep convincing myself there is more to it and I often have a lump in my throat, a choking sensation and a heavy head. I'm basically after a bit of comfort to know that others with anxiety also suffer these symptoms and also whether anybody has any experience of attending CBT?

    Thank you. Yes I too have a stiff neck and heavy head. Its been suggested that perhaps mine is health related anxiety but I'm definately going to see my GP for advice

    I have had a choking sensation at times with mine, especially when I already have bad allergies. CBT is quite successful, and I would highly recommend giving it a try. There is no way you won't be better equipped for dealing with anxiety after a few sessions, because the treatment is that effective.

    Re: New to anxiety talking

    Thank you for your reply. I've now been diagnosed with health anxiety by my GP and have had my first CBT session which went well. I still have thr odd wobble and seem to have some symptoms present every day although I am not suffering as much as I was a few weeks ago. It amazes how many different symptoms of anxiety there actually are which probably comfirms why I was sure it must be something more serious!!
