    I think you should first consult your MD to eliminate any medical influences, and ask him/her to recommend a pdoc who can advise you regarding what steps to take next...all the best, J

    Might be. It;s a good idea to rule out medical causes, as was suggested. But if it's anxiety, please know that it's HIGHLY treatable, through various forms of psychotherapy and medications.

    Good Luck!

    Hi Pitchdespair,

    I'm just wondering did you consult a doctor about this? What was his/her opinion? :hug:

    There might be reasons why you're feeling like this that you aren't fully aware of right now and would be good to work out with a therapist.

    First of all, from a purely practical viewpoint, have you tried breathing, like controlled breathing, eight in (through the nose) eight out(through the mouth)? It has to be really controlled, very slow. And maybe blanking out your mind and focusing on a safe image. I've had to do this when I've felt like you.
