that is what started my anxiety, i went to mountain climbing last year, which made my ears blocked and clogged like i was in an airplane, ever since that day my ears have blockage and i can hear cricket noises 24/7, sometimes my ear feels warm and wet from inside and sometimes i get earaches.
and because of that it gave me vertigos, i felt unbalanced and felt like i was moving and shaking when i wasnt. and made my ears so sensitive to loud noise and too many voices at once, it started giving me panics, and slowly i developed new symptoms from the anxiety and panic attacked i started having over the year. its been a year now and i now suffer sever anxiety and chronic 24/7 ear popping when ever i swallow or yawn.
its caused by some ear infection, i havent been to the doctor but its one of the reasons i got anxiety, i kept googling why it was happening and ended up reading too much about other symptoms and read about other negative things, which filled my mind with nonsense and now i have health anxiety. even the slightest pain in my body will give me panic and nonstop worries that i have serious illness, i cant control it, i know its just in my mind, but i cant seem to stop it from happening, everytime im bored or not doing anything, i will start thinking about my anxiety and health, and now i suffer from GAD. cause of this one ear thing that started a year ago. it lead onto more and more things.
