Welcome to the Healing Well Family and the A & P Forum. I am Kitt.
I am sorry you started to have anxiety and panic attacks but you are amongst many here so please post any time you feel like it.
Signs of anxiety include restlessness, a lot of worrying about things that probably will not happen, and not being able to pay attention or remain focused on a task. Sometimes the stress can get extreme and lead to panic attacks.
Panic attacks are short times of intense fear and anxiety, which often include quick heartbeats, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness or stomach problems.
Please talk with your doctor if you are having any of these signs.
Some things that may help lower your stress are:
• Getting enough rest (at least 8 hours a day)
• Meditation (sitting quietly with your thoughts)
• Listening to gentle music
• Taking a warm bath
• Going for walks
• Regular exercise that you are used to doing
Therapy is another method of learning to deal with your anxiety and is recommend highly by many people.
Again a warm welcome and stay with us.
