Hi all x

As I mentioned in my introduction post im having a bad flare up with my panic and anxiety disorder cry
I had a bad night again last night and the dream I had only added to it, My question is whether some of the symptoms I have been experiencing are normal or if i should seek medical advice
I keep getting shooting/stabbing pains in my neck and head which un nerve me, and yesterday one side of my face kept going quite numb and my lips on that side felt tingly,
I have also noticed my vision is blurred, but it seems to come and go, again un nerving, it seems worse the more tired I am, or if ive just woken up, and if I get sidetracked it doesnt bother me but if i start working myself up it gets worse again smhair this is one symptom which is relatively new to me so its worrying me

Also do you all only get symptoms when actually having an attack or do you get them at any time of the day??

Is the numbness from hyperventilating during a panic attack?  Or is it unrelated?

Good question tortoise11 I was wondering the same. I get the same sensations when my anxiety is up.

im really not sure, i dont have to have had a panic attack for it to start but i only really notice it when my thoughts are running away with me,, does that make sense??
If im busy and not thinking about things it doesnt seem to be there, if im letting my mind wander it is there and i notice it

has anyone ever experienced the blurred vision thing as thts one of the things thats panicking me the most x x
