also I would add sweating, blurred vision or loss of vision and freezing up and unable to move
the blood vessel closure is supposed to limit bleeding if attacked, it causes tingling or numbness
learning new ways of relaxing and calming yourself is the answer

Good Morning All
Every time your body triggers the fight or flight response, for situations that are not truly life-threatening, you are experiencing, in effect, a false alarm. Too many false alarms can lead to stress-related disorders like, heart disease, high blood pressure, immune system disorders, migraine headaches, insomnia and sexual dysfunction.
The fight or flight response may also be triggered by anticipatory anxiety. Similiar to stage fright, you start getting anxious about what might happen and things escalate to anxiety or panic attacks.
Great info from all, way to go everyone.
