How's anxiety is tied to death, dying, illness? So much so that you begin to feel symptoms that you are unsure of if they are real or not. This isn't an every day occurrence but happens during episodes that may last a few days to a few weeks. Once they resolve they remain away for months at time. But when they peak they are overwhelming.

Hi T.B. and welcome!

I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with anxiety and some confusing symptoms currently.

It can ne really hard to determine what is anxiety causing us to feel si unwell...

...or whether it could be a physical issue that we need to address.

A good approach is to get a screening to rule out any illness/healthissue...

...and then to start an anxiety management plan if it is determined that this is this cause of what you are feeling.

You can also check out our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great material to work with. The 'Super Scanner' is a great link to learn how anxiety affects our system, causing symptoms...

...and there are many other helpful coping skills to be found there as well.smile

Keep posting with is as well if you find it helpful. We care, understand and support is key!
