The first time this kicked in for me it layed me out for a couple months. I feel a strong physical fight or flight feeling, but I can think clearly and have nothing to feel anxious about. I’ve always been a calm person, a first responder who gets mellower as the tension increases. Now I still wake up to a feeling of anxiety but I really think its just that my brain doesn’t know which way is down and translates that into a sensation of physical anxiety. My body feels like it is trembling and I feel shaky.
And then it affects my thinking and interpersonal relationships. I get short tempered, etc.
Does anyone else get this?
Its my primary symptom, but SRI’s make it worse. Camomile has some effect, Benzo’s are wonderful but those are out of the question.
