    • This is a key point in overcoming anxiety - know your triggers, know the symptoms.  How you think determines how you feel.  When these times comes up, peel away at the issue - what you CAN control and what you CANNOT control.  Let go of what you can control and then figure out what is going on with the out-of-control side so you aren't reacting as negatively! You actually made a big breakthrough with that post - I just wanted you to make sure you saw it!
    • I dud notice the other day that my anxiety was off the charts and I was tingling all over with super jitters 
    • I got the second dose of the  Pfizer vaccine on Friday morning and my arm hurt a fair amount for a while and still hurts to the touch today. I was very very tired yesterday but still worked in my office. I am still a bit tired today and my temperature went up to 99.4 yesterday for a while. I took one extra strength Tylenol yesterday for a tiny headache. 
    • I would have this as well.  It aggravated lactose intolerance issues for me as well.  Heart palpitations - body rigidity (that actually happened to me in college before I even knew what it was!). During my "pseudo-nervous breakdown period" in 2004, I was even sitting in the fetal position rocking back on forth trying to calm down. Then.....there was the derealization! Yeah, I was non-functional for several weeks.
    • Yes. When I was at my worst anxiety-wise, sometimes I felt sensations like hot water dripping on them. And of course the tingles and twitches. When I’m at a better place anxiety-wise I feel none of that. It’s kind of like a tell for me. If I notice leg issues I realize I’m anxious and will work on it.
