HI Steve and Welcome to the HW family..........
I have not really ran into too many ppl that get this other than me and now.......... you
There very well may be others though so we shall see if they post that they go thru this as well
IMHO yes it is very possible
I have had A/P for well over 30 plus years and I did have extreme Anticipatory Anxiety.........
Every day I would wake up with the feeling of DREAD and what was going to go wrong today
Never looking at the glass half full .........always half empty
I have done Cognitive behaviour
al Therapy ( yes I was a big skeptic lol) and for me it has helped
I do still have the occasional AA panic attack....
Mostly due to my siblings and what they are pulling since parents have passed away
As well as some serious health issues I am dealing with at the present
Now how I am able to get thru the majority of those is with breathing techniques or I have to take a valium ...
AS well my HW fa,ily DOES help in so many ways as they DO know what I am going thru what I have gone thru
Where I am or where I have been ya know
YOU are never alone for sure on this site( forum,)
Either way I do get thru them and I know if perhaps you started journalling some of these you may find what is tiggering them ......
I did and quite surprising to me it was 99% my son and DIL
I honestly believe that you are not gettting worse but that your A/P may be taking a different turn
This is the sneakiest of all DD IMHO and it has to be fought with ALL you have
Know that I am speaking from my experiences ..........
I really DO hope you will stick around introduce yourself in the "I am " thread and get to know us and us you
THIS is really a great place and the ppl could not be better ......support,empathy,caring,and understanding
That is also from my heart Steve
