Hi KB and welcome.
I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing such symptoms...and the resulting worries they naturally create.
Anxiety can have profound effects on us physically! This is our body's hard wired way of dealing with a threat (flight or fight mechanism)...and also giving us a clue that we need to address and deal with our stress.
Did you make a follow up appointment with your GP to discuss treatment options? Medication and/or therapy are the usual choices for anxiety management.
Self help is another great tool, and one you can get started with right away. See our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great material to work with!
Keep posting with us as well if you find it helpful. We care, understand and support is key.
