No. Trudy, you are not. What you have is GAD, but you know that. ALL your symptoms are so typical of anxiety that if you look up '100 symptoms of anxiety' you will find them all there. And that's all it is, anxiety!! Now in no way am I minimising your feelings, god knows, been there. It does so often come and go, and that is the frustrating part of it. We can be somewhere enjoying ourselves when WHAM!! seemingly out of the blue it hits us. Something has triggered it off. It can be a sight, noise, voices shouting, a smell or anything. It's no use trying to find these triggers becuse they can be elusive and the more you try the more anxiety you cause. It still comes down the the old word ACCEPTANCE. I know, over the years I have said this so often and it's still true. No fighting or struggling with IT. That's a fight you can never win.  Slow down and take it a day at a time, even an hour at a time. The more you try to loose it the worse it will get. Give up the struggle, not give in, that's different and can lead to despair. Are you on any medication? It can help a lot in the short term, but only that prescribed by your dodctor. Go easy on yourself, what you have is so common in anxiety.
