Yeah, I get exactly this. I start off with a general feeling of anxiety (of nothing in particular), and then I start thinking about how terrible it would be if I suddenly caught a nasty disease. And then, I imagine I'm getting the symptoms of whatever disease I'm worried about that week, which makes me more anxious, which makes the symptoms worse, etc. It's a vicious circle that's hard to get out of.

Yes, it tends to be after a build-up of big things going on in life. I just completely crash for a few days, and it can sometimes take me a week to recover. The "symptoms" come after about a day.

Stress build up and all sorts of events happening and they just pile on one another--this is happening in my life at the moment.

I think just about everyone who posts here, in one way or another, ends up doing this to themselves...me included.  I'm still alive though, no terrible diseases!  None of my dire predictions have come true!

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

I couldn't agree more with this post right now. This past weekend was one of the roughest I've had at work in many months, it was extremely busy and we were shorthanded as two of our other supervisors were out.  Not to mention, my district supervisors had emailed me with expectations that needed to be fulfilled by monday, and those would require nearly all of my time, so I was under a lot of pressure. But, I had to rationalize and just do what I could and helped out my immediate supervisor and coworkers with the local issues first, and did what I could for my district supervisors when the time was available. On top of that, Sat. night I began running a fever at work and had to leave a few hours early. I took some Nyquil, but was afraid of how it would react with my prescription med for my vestibular migraines (dizziness), so I skipped taking that med. Sunday was another rough day, made worse by having a migraine and body aches all day. I took more Nyquil and skipped my prescribed med again. Monday started better, as I was feeling a lot better and the stress load was less at work, but towards the end of the night I became very dizzy, my anxiety flared up, and I ended up leaving about 45 minutes early.

Now I told that story for background to today... I woke up this afternoon still feeling light headed and dizzy. Also had chest soreness and light pain. My first thought was I've never had anxiety carry on this long, what if something else was wrong? But then I began to think... I've had a really stressful weekend, skipped the meds that are suppose to help calm me down, and was sick on top of that. How should I be feeling right now? Certainly not 'fine'! Hopefully the light headedness will subside as I get back into a normal routine over the next few days.

It could, but it could also be a warm flash. Anxiety and elevated blood pressure are normal I think, happens to me a lot. 140/90 or 150/100 isn't uncommon. It's not sustained, usually subsides with the attack.
