    Re: question about flushing

    It's a physiological response to your situational thoughts....such as embarassment. My hands used to/and occasionally turn red when my anxiety is high and I'm feeling "stupid". I've done CBT for it as well as biofeedback (which I flunked because I kept falling asleep), the CBT worked well. It still bothers me (because I'm very fair and it's noticable), but certainly not as much as it used to.

    CBT will help lead you to get the tools you need to help break the cycle... (if that's what you want).....because the thought of being red to me SHOWS the world there's something wrong. It added to the cycle of my irrational thoughts.

    Hope this helps somewhat.

    Hi Caryn64,
    Tingling, numbness or flushing are the most common first symptoms of panic or anxiety. flushing is usually the first for me.

    Exactly, moves right on up. This is a minor symptom, nothing to worry about. When you get used to it acting in one way it may change the way it moves or the areas of your body if effects. Shake if off and don't worry, it is only brain tricks, nothing that will harm you. The sooner you can get use to it, the less it will effect you. You can master this, work at it and again, don't worry you are fine. Be well

    Sincerely,

    Sickman

    The flushing is the first reaction of anxiety or panic because it is the first response to your Adrenaline rush which is the same thing. It can happen sub-consciously with just the a tiny thing that you don't even realize happened. How do you determine if your anxiety is high or low when you are constantly analizing this action and anticipating it happening. I have gotten this to the point of fire, if that will help. I suggest that you do see your Physcratrist and tell he or she about it, to ease your mind. These things effect everyone different, some worse then others with each type of symptom. Some have symptoms that others have never had, or will and the Doctors have never seen it either. Have it checked out to ease your mind and be calm until you do.

    Sincerely,

    Sickman
