Stress Makes My Life a Mess

I have been stressed for a while. Im constantly yelled at and I cant sleep,i get really scared and the room spins and I get dizzy.Also my heart starts beating really fast. I have trouble swallowing and it feels like there is a constant spit ball stuck in my throat. Is this signs of stress?

Sounds like anxiety building to panic, but it is always a good idea to get checked out by a physician to rule out a physical cause. If it ends up being anxiety like mine you may want to look into cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt) as it taught me the tools I needed to get over the problem. My favorite introductory book on cbt is "been there, done that? Do this! By sam obitz and many universities offer cbt programs that are of little or no cost to the patients. Good luck :d

Life Situation?
Hi there,

you said you are constantly yelled at. I'm not sure who is yelling at you but this in itself can trigger anxiety. Be careful, if anxiety or other mood problems are sufficiently triggered by an outside situation they may not automatically disappear once the unpleasant situation is over. If you are in an abusive situation please find help.

Hi there

sounds like anxiety like I have. I would go to the doctor to rule out any health problems that may be causeing your anxiety. You might want to try deep relaxation. If you drink caffine you may want to cut back because it can trigger anxiety. There is a paper back book by Dr. Claire
weekes (hope and help for your nerves) this is a great book about anxiety and it will help you understand it and help you to learn to deal with it. I do not know why you are being yelled at but that sure does not help in your case. Hope you get better and hope you get the book to read.
