Hi Jasozz and welcome.
I am sorry to hear of your current anxious state. Interpersonal encounters can certainly be catalysts for feelings such as you described.
It sounds like the unresolved issues of the fight could be causing your anxiety. I know that if I don't have a feeling of peace about
my interactions and relationships with people, then I will be unsettled until it gets fixed.
I may have missed it, or missread your post...but it does not sound as if you two have really talked about
the arguement? If that is the case, I would encourage you to do so.
This will surely go a long way in helping you to feel better.:)
That being said, it does sound like you had a stronger than ususal reaction to the situation...as we with anxiety often do! What do you do if anything for stress relief?
If you need some ideas, we have a great Resource Guide
here on our main page (1st post) with many effective self-help stress reducing techniques. The breathing, PMR (progressive muscle relaxation) and meditation exercises are excellent at managing anxiety and symptoms such as the ones you are experiencing.
Support is key as well. Keep posting with us is you find it helps. We are here to understand and listen.
