I need help with trying to accept that anxiety is my problem. I started suffering badly when I took my 13yr old daughter to a rock concert 2 week of Feb.Which I've been to myself more times than I can count. I thought I was having a hypoclamic attack so I was sucking on hard candy to get me thru.The next day she had to call 911 because of me fainting and feeling hot/cold ect. They said I had vertigo and released me.My symptoms are hot clammy/sweaty hands,dizzy/lightheaded, chest pains,back pains,burning chest,tingling head,racing heart,confusion,legs shaking,weak/heavy arms. These can last ALL DAY long.I have 5 kids 2,4,10,12,&13.I was finally put on Lexapro 1/2 tablet 2 weeks ago. It seemed like up until a few days ago it was working. Today is not a good day. I called the dr and he said to start taking a full tablet and use the samples of .5 mgs of Niravam.This morning I read that alot of women are mis diagnosed as having anxiety when its actually something more such as heart problems and dietbetes , ect.So of course I think everything is wrong with me.I don't know how to accept this is anxiety/panic.Any help is so much appreciated.Thanks

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
