Stop drinking caffeine! No coffee, soda, etc. Also drink cold ice water when you get that hot anxiety chest pain. Hold the glass against your sternum when you are drinking it and it can help to decrease the pain. Try it!

Hi Crissy,

I can confirm that I've experienced all the symptoms you speak of. It's called Generalised Anxiety. My Doctor diagnosed me straight away. One theory is that it is caused by a chemical shortage of Serotonin supply to the brain. Serotonin is thought to be a contributor to feelings of well being and happiness. I have been prescribed an SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re uptake Inhibitor) which gradually restores the supply of Serotonin until it is fully replenished. It takes a few weeks to kick in but I am in no doubt that it has worked for me. I have also seen a Therapist who has has not only helped me understand the disorder but also helped me to change/adjust my thought patterns so I can challenge my anxiety through more positive thinking and actions. I can confirm that Chamomile tea is great. I have it every night about an hour before I go to sleep.

I wish you all the best.
Shaun
