Could you explain what you mean when you said you applied to go to the police. Anxiety is a symptom, not a diagnosis. First you need to see a doctor, tell them about your symptoms, have him do blood work not just the simple things, make sure he/she checks things like you thyroid function, vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, liver function etc. Fast before your blood tests otherwise it will not be accurate. If the tests all come back normal, keep searching, perhaps go see a psychologist, an endocrinologist. Try not to assume the worst, we all have some degree of many symptoms. worrying will only exasperate your symptoms. Until you get a diagnosis their is no need to worry. Just go see a doctor. If one doctor doesnt take you seriously see another one until you find one who will take you seriously. do not go to the ER unless you are having severe chest pains, with shortness of breath, pounding heart, uncontrollable sweating etc. ERs are only their to make sure you are not suffering from something that could cause serious problems, like a heart attack, or appendisitis, a bowel obstruction, etc. always find a regular doctor who you can establish a relationship with, and then you can feel at ease because they will prescribe tests until they find out the problem.
idk what to do im always thinking im dying if my heart rates to fast or if my stomach looks weird when im breathing i cant take a normal deep breath what do i do? i have been diagnosed with hyperthyroid like 4 years ago... if i take certain medicine illegal or legal i freak out and immediately think im dying if i get too hot or chest pains short breath dialated pupil heat flashes etc...HELP
