It does sound like anxiety to me and if it went away with some breathing exercises that is good. Try not get caught up in the anticipatoy anxiety and trying to analyze this one episode. Remember that anxiety has many different faces.
Here is the link to the many anxiety sx and remember it is not all inclusive.
If you should have more sx that bother you I would suggest you talk with your physician and see what he feels may help you if you are on meds.
Remember sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. It does sound like you had a very busy day so take some time to relax. Plan it in to each day.
Wow!! thanks for the responses! And thank you for the link to anxiety symptoms at anxietycentre.com which was very helpful :)
I can't believe after all my years with anxiety and researching, I never saw that site!!!
Anxiety does effect everyone differently, sometimes worse than others. I had an experience like that standing in line at Walmart with a cart full of groceries! What you described sounded like a very busy day. My overly busy days were always my worse. When I finally put the brakes on my schedule and how I used my time, learning to say no except what was really important or necessary, I started feeling better. Along with finding the right med for me, I do not have the attacks anymore. I hope you are feeling better today. We all have to find our own way to deal with anxiety.
OK, I will join the I hate to be in line a Walmart group. Drive me up the wall, I hate standing there feeling anxious and trying to remember to take a deep breath and relax, I will make it through the line.
Anxiety know no limits and will hit you broadside so arm yourself with many tools my friends.
