I myself am experiencing similar experiences to you. My anxiety has only been something in the past 12months but it is very similar to what you are describing; scared to leave the house, shaking, muscles spasms, hot then cold, can't talk to people. That's all things i have experienced. I can't say for 100% certainty that you will get better, but what I can tell you is this, if you try to get better, chances are you will get better. When I say that I don't mean, if you try everything will go away in a flash. What I mean is, if you try to get better things will get easier for you. You will either learn how to live with it and learn how to go about your day to day life with it, or, you will over come it and leave it in the past and move on to a bright future. I've not long seeked professional help, because like you, I am not coping with it, and I can't take much more of it either. I have my first session with a trained professional in about 6weeks time and I wish it was sooner. But I have faith things will get better. I really, truly have faith that things will improve, for both of us. We can over come this, you know why? Because I am a strong believer in karma and balance. Here we are, being out of balance, overwhelmed with all this anxiety, pretty soon something good will happen to us and set the balance back to where we deserve to be; happy and anxiety free. It'll happen, may not be today, may not be this week, but it will happen.

Are you on any medications? Medication will definitely help the healing process. Surround yourself with loving and supportive people, you cant fight this alone. The more loved ones you have around you and people who can make you laugh the better, its easier to be said than done, at first i had to fake it and pretend i was laughing and put on a face but eventually I found humor in their jokes again. I would try to reach out to a professional and get on meds, you might have to play around with different kinds of medications because every person is different and you have to have what med works for you. I was first on zoloft (for depression) and xanax (anxiety)...the zoloft make me feel crazy and actually intensified my anxiety, so my doctor switched me to prozac (depression) and ativan (anxiety) and its the first time in a long time im starting to actually feel normal again, and wake up wanting to take on the work. I still have anxiety daily but they are less intense. It will take time, and I mean a lot of time, but you will get through this with the right help. Goodluck to you! :)

I can totally relate to you! Especially the burning in the back of your head. I get that all the time. It wakes me up at night and lasts for hours. Muscle spasms, twitching, reflux, I get all of that as well. I haven't found anything that helps yet, but hopefully someday :)

I can relate to every single symptom. Most mornings they start as soon as I open my eyes. As I'm writing this, I've called off work for the 4th day in a row and I haven't been able to leave my house. I feel terrified most of the time, even though I know that I have absolutely nothing to be afraid of. I've been on medication for going on two years, though they no longer appear to be working. Find a Psychiatrist that will help you find something that works. It's trial and error, but when your life is being railroaded, you've gotta start somewhere. Then find a Therapist to talk to. I've gone through several techniques ranging from tracking my panic attacks to progressive muscle relaxation. Nothing's been that effective for me personally, but they're all great techniques and again, it's trial and error. They may work for you.

Me I could relate, it is horrible to feel like you can't breath, like you have a dark cloud over your head
