Can I still get anxiety symptoms when I'm not anxious?
« on: April 29, 2014, 02:49:13 AM »
Things like dizziness, weight loss, fast heart rate, sweating, etc.

I've been calm all day, and pretty darn happy. It was a good day for my mental state, however I still feel the physical symptoms. Is it anxiety or is there something else at work here?

In the scheme of things it doesn't matter much.~

Yes. I feel like I have 24/7 symptoms even on days I am feeling somewhat good.  It's annoying but I just figure it's my anxiety and I'm living with it.  :goofy:

Simple answer is yes. People can get symptoms without actually feeling anxious. I know that may sound weird. But it does happen. I would simply try and ignore them. Find something else to focus on. Take your mind off of yourself. I am sure the symptoms will vanish.

I think if your body has been in a state of high anxiety for a long time it can just take a while to 'come down' from that anxiety. try not to focus on your symptoms,they'll eventually fade.

Actually symptoms are MORE apt to come once the anxiety and stress leave!

I am definitely saying yes, this was a problem with me many times, on the days when I actually didn't have anxiety per se, I would still experience physical manifestations, that in turn would cause anxiety again and makes me question does my anxiety cause physical symptoms or no I must have something physically wrong with me, causing my anxiety. Turned into a vicious cycle basically. Keep occupied and try not to think about it. (I know easier said then done).

I totally see a pattern in my past that my PHYSICAL symptoms seem to lag behind the worst points of Stress.  I think it's because the body takes time to really get ramped up (while the brain seems to do it instantly).  I think the reverse is true as well.  The stressful situation eases but once the body is geared up, it takes it a LOT longer to go back to "normal".

When the stress is constant and the body "catches up to it" is when the symptoms keep going day after day and it's a lot easier to attach them to the stress.
