User Profile
For the past 2 day I 2 have been having the same thing happening to my body except my whole body is affected. It feeling like someone has turned up the heat on the inside of my body. And yes it is vary scary because no one can tell me what is going on. I also had a additional sysptom last night. I was sleeping and suddenly it I had this strange very sort of hurting tingling feel all over my body.

Hear is some of my other symptoms prior to the above sysptoms. Thankfully most of them are not as bad right now.

slight change in vision(but nothing alarming)
muscle weakness(or more like my body felt heavy)
pressure in my head and sinuses(mostly when I am laying down)
felt like my throat was swelling and closing off
felt like my chest was swelling

Has anyone else every had any on the above symptoms? Can this be from sinus problem and anxiety because I do not know what is going on with my body?

Anxiety and Stress Answer A17487
Welcome to the forum and I am glad to help you out. The symptoms that you have described seem like anxiety neurosis. It is a series of symptoms, which arise from faulty adaptation to the stresses and strain of life.

It makes sense to consult a psychiatrist as you might need medications for the anxiety and maybe a round of psychologic counseling. Treatment options include cognitive behaviour therapy,medicines like SSRI’s, benzodiazepines and psychological counseling. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
