For years and years I've often got the 'shakes'. I guess I've just kind of got used to it cos I never really thought a lot of it and it wasn't so much of an inconvenience. But now I'm starting to realise its anxiety and I've been told its like a mini panic attack. I've just been diagnosed with anxiety (had depression diagnosed years ago), and am currently signed off work for 2 weeks.
When I get this shaky feeling I quite often shake all over, I feel lightheaded and nauseous. Is this a panic attack?
In general alot of the time I find it hard to sit still, I need to be doing something, and in general feel like I have 'butterflies' in my stomach. Argh its just horrible!
