My anxiety went over the top 2 weeks ago. I had to put my third Chihuahua down and the Dr said I had anxiety. Well who doesn't. I have some pstd symptoms from losing 2 husbands. I have a good therapist and it is nice to know I'm normal and my mind is reacting to many losses. I'm glad I got help.
Pstd is a strange thing, you can have a wide range of symptoms.mine is fear...stemming from the unexpected shock of death of my husbands. I go into a state of fear for awhile. It's very hard..the dogs dieing triggered it and it came back. I'm very sensitive person and my mind can only take so much. I suffer but know in time I'll get through it. I have had physical symptoms like a type of retching and feel weak and light headed. The Dr said it could be a hiatus hernia too. I don't get pain, just a strong thrust upward in my upper abdomen, about
knocks me over.the ekg came back ok. I worry it will happen while driving, or in public, but I go anyway. It has happened several times when I was under stress. It's very distressing.
