It could be anxiety....this triggers adrenaline. Or it simply could be adrenaline and your body is sensitive to it. It's one of those things where I would just let it be. Overanalyzing it can make you more sensitive to it, either worrying when it happens, or happening more frequently which can make your anxiety worse. I'd say let it be :)
Tobias, it is interesting that you should post this. For a number of years I have been getting adrenaline rushes that begin in my chest and go all the way down into the skin of my legs causing a prickly feeling in the skin. I can get these surges due to some emotional thought or somebody even just touching the back of my neck. It really is a horrible feeling. I hope it is just anxiety or an over active neurological system. If you can tell me anything else about these surges I'd appreciate it.
It could be something subconscious. Could be last time you heard a particular song or radio announcer you were having an anxious day--or an adrenaline filled day. perhaps months later even though you've forgotten about it, it's there in the subconscious and your body has the trigger again. Heck, sometimes I get a surge of nervousness when someone compliments me. no good reason for it, but it happens. My point is that sometimes there isn't a good reason for bodily responses....be they anxiety-driven adrenaline surges or adrenaline surges that aren't anxiety. Now if you were to have these surges daily, for extended periods of time, and were having chest pains, headaches, blood pressure spikes, then yes that's something that needs to be addressed.But our bodies, as people with anxiety disorders. are sensitized to stimulation. People without anxiety likely have similar adrenaline surges at seemingly innocuous things. (from caffeine, medication, sugar, subconscious memories....or no good reason at all). Someone else may brush it off and not give it much thought. Where with anxiety, we try to analyze and pick it apart for....and then perhaps start to dread these otherwise harmless blips in our day
Hello, I am finding these comments really interesting as I believe I get adrenaline rushes, but they are in my head - it comes on when I seem to be fairly stressed and feels like the feeling when you get up too quickly off the sofa and come over all funny and light headed with a strange feeling in the head. However I can get this by just standing or sitting. The doctor seems to think it's just a rush of adrenaline which doens't go to my stomach anymore. What do you guys think?:)
