First off, I have been led to believe that I may have some form of anxiety, and have for a few years now. I have not been diagnosed for anxiety, but I have been seriously questioning seeing a doctor. Recently, my stress levels have been worse than ever, concerning school and other reasons that I'm not going to go into at the moment. First it started with tapping, like tapping my desk with my fingers, or uncontrollably tapping my leg and foot. Now, due to recent problems that have made their presence known in my life, I feel like I've lost control of everything. I've been finding it difficult to sleep for about a year now, often staying up until awful hours of the night, only to wake up early for school in the mornings. I'm still keeping up my grades, but keeping them up has also caused me a lot of stress. Since the past two months though, it has gotten much worse and it's starting to scare me. After some major problems came up, I started having these attacks. I'm not exactly sure what they are, though. I'll be carrying on with my day and at random, my heart will start beating 10x faster than it normally does, I'll break into a sweat and my chest feels constricted. Along with these attacks, I have also noticed changes in my behavior. I've begun lashing out at my friends and wanting nothing more than to curl into a ball and disappear from everyone else's sight. This is really unlike me and it bothers me, but I do these things without even realizing I did them until after it happened. It has really begun threatening my friendships and other relationships. I often find myself unable to focus, zoning out, and having really confused thoughts. I'm constantly forgetting what I'm doing and I've even begun to act slightly violent, buy only when I'm alone. Along with all of this, there was one more recent occurance. I was on the bus back home and sitting with one of my friends. We were just joking around and such, when suddenly I had another one of those attacks. My mind got really cloudy and at the time I really didn't have any control over what I was doing. I was hysterical and panicked, yet I have no idea why. I could breathe very well and I was half-crying half-laughing. I'm not really sure what emotions I was feeling, but I felt the sudden urge to get off of the bus and away from everyone. Once I calmed down, I was honestly terrified, due to the fact that I had no idea what was going on or why. Please, I'm really scared of what could be causing this, so if you have any ideas of what this could be, Please leave an answer below. Thank you.
