    Re: Lets Do A Study- List Symptoms

    Hi I am 27

    tunnel vision
    shaking
    racing heart
    skipping beats ( the worst of mine, I am become obsessed with it )
    stomach ache
    wind
    sweating
    sensation of terror
    fear something bad will happen
    fear of illness & dying
    can't catch my breath

    and many others, but they are the most frequent. Maybe it is modern life that causes us to get like this, especially that we are all young.

    Mark

    Yes, I was dx'd with thyroid cancer exactly a year ago. They kind of found it by accident. My Dr. just happened to feel around on my neck over my thyroid area and felt a nodule. I didn't have swelling in my throat or any other symptoms of thyroid cancer. Thankfully, thyroid cancer is very curable. I had 2 surgeries and a radioactive iodine treatment. I will go back next month for my 1 year scan to make sure it's all gone.

    Re: Lets Do A Study- List Symptoms

    I think I am the oldest so far at 34

    Lightheaded
    Spaced out
    Lots of differant sensations in back, shoulders and upper arms
    Stuffy head
    Visual problems
    Headaches
    Fatigue
    Joint pains from waist down
    Lower back pain
    Left kidney pain(dull)
    bladder pain(dull)
    frequent urination at times
    Acid reflux and heartburn
    I get weird and fast heart rates only during anxiety attacks.

    I noticed lightheaded is very common and wondered if everyone feels this 24/7 or just durring an attack? Most everything I stated I feel 24/7.

    Re: Lets Do A Study- List Symptoms

    Hi Bothrops...my lightheaded feeling is pretty much all the time as well, not just during an anxiety attack.

    I am 22 and have the majority of the same symptoms as everyone else

    lightheaded
    weird sensation in head and heart...skipping beats
    achey arms and legs
    scared that something bad is going to happen
    terrified of getting sick from germs
    forgetful
    tired
    not wanting to go out for fear of passing out
    headaches...
    and on and on

    Re: Lets Do A Study- List Symptoms

    Mine starts with a feeling of not being in my body like the floating lots of you mention.
    Next my hearing get this high pitch ring that is God awful.
    Stomach cramps almost feeling like I have to go that very second but I'm to wacked out to make it to the bathroom.
    People will be talking to me and I can't tell what they are saying and just pray they go away.
    Sometimes although rare I will pass out.
    After I come too I feel as though I have been hit by a bus and extreamly tired.
    Heart races too.
    I developed a heart condtion where my heart can not requlate back to normal. I have to take inderal La to keep it normal.

    Re: Lets Do A Study- List Symptoms

    Mine are:

    *Chest tightness and pressure, aching shoulders.
    *Racing pulse upon standing or during light activity although can be normal when resting (constant pulse checking).
    *constant shortness of breath
    *blurry vision/vision disturbances - floaters, flashes etc.
    *Pressure in head and neck.
    *Feeling of being light headed and slightly dizzy(without blackouts).
    *face becomes flushed througout the day
    *occasional palps - double beats.
    *generally feeling off-colour (yes that is a letter 'u' in the word colour -American spelling indeed ).

    I don't have panick attacks, however I am a natural born worrier and do think about my symptoms constantly. These symptoms do not necessarily come on when I'm stressed and are pretty constant although they are worse at certain times than others.

    Subconciously am still convinced I'm suffering with some serious heart condition they've not picked up.

    P.S - am 26 and have normal vitals i.e.- blood pressure, cholesterol, no family history etc.
