I am new to this posting.  I have been experiencing many physical symptoms and have been told by my pcp that I am dealing with panic attacks and anxiety. I don't feel anxious.  But I want to describe my physical symptoms in the hope that someone else has the same.  I am currently feeling this strange sensation in my chest, radiating to my back .  A tinglling crawling feeling that hasn't gone away in days.  Is it true that this is a result of anxiety?  I have for the last 8 months or so also been having times of  feelings of faint, rapid heart rate, dizziness, shakiness, trembling in my knees and hands and sometimes nausea. Also headaches insomnia or extreme fatigue.  Last week I had to have an endoscopy for gastro disturbances and having not eaten all day and having a sinus infection I freaked out.  Totally thought I was going to die or lose control. I  have that feeling alot like I am going to pass out ,have a heart attack or go crazy.  Please someone respond with some form of confirmation that I am not alone in these feelings.

Hi and welcome
Sure sounds like anxiety to me and if you go back thru old posts you will read the same thing from others you are experiencing
YOU will not die from the panic or anxiety
Actually to me it sounds like you need to see a therapist and meds might have to be an option as well as everyday coping skills
NO you are not alone with this .....as you will come to see if you stick around
This is a great place with the best ppl and support
Hope to see you often
