Sorry if this is the wrong section.I get things like this a lot. But today got me wondering.While sitting in the gym with my friends, I suddenly got this strong feeling mix of nervous, sad, and a general uneasy feeling. I have no reason to be nervous, but I just get like this every so often. Sometimes I wind up shaking, my leg constantly want to move, my skin gets red and hot, and I sometimes almost want to cry. I usually don't care what anyone thinks, but when I get like this for some reason I do.My friend told me it sounds like anxiety. Could that me it?
Could This Be An Anxiety Attack?
It does sound like it could be. Do you find it harder to breath? I have anxiety, and when I have an anxiety attack those are generally my symptoms - minus the redness. Feelings of nervousness/uneasyness, even crying, and especially shaking or being jittery (or 'twitching' to an extent) are fairly normal for anxiety attacks (at least in my experience).I think you should try talking to your doctor or a psychiatrist, even if you do not wish to take medication.
Yes, my breathing becomes 'erratic'. I can breathe in really deeply, and finally exhale 10-20 seconds later and then suddenly start breathing really fast, and then not breathing much at all.
My girlfriend was just recommending it. It's been going on for a few years, but just recently been making me worry.
Yeah, I myself have (or rather, had) social anxiety for a few years. My chest would feel tight, I'd have trouble breathing, my palms would be sweaty. I know someone who didn't really have a 'reason' for her anxiety, too. She would just randomly have panic attacks. I tried medication and it worked for me, then I gradually weened off it when I felt I no longer needed it.
Best of luck!
