Feeling very anxious/scared for no good reason? watch

    I've always been a big worrier about stuff, but recently it's been worse. You know the feeling when you remember you have a big test in a few days, but then you forget about the test for a bit, yet still feel subconsciously anxious (if this makes sense)? Well, I've had this feeling for about a month solid now and i'm confused and scared that it will never go away

    Initially I thought it was because of my mock exams, but they passed and I still felt the same. Then I thought it was because I was worried about getting a train by myself and going to a big party, but that has passed too and I still feel the same. Going to the party was a big thing for me because I felt really scared about getting there alone, having to socialise with people etc, but now it's over I still feel like that.

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to stop feeling like this? I've had some physical symptoms too, like heart palpitations, racing pulse, difficulty sleeping, and I'm worried that this is all part of a mental health problem or something. Basically I'm really confused and would like any help possible please

    It's hard to draw the line between actual anxiety and being stressed about exams. You do show some of the symptoms for anxiety, but it's hard to be more specific without more details tbh.
    If I were you I'd go to the doctors and tell them how you've been feeling - they will actually know whether it's anxiety or not. Sorry I couldn't be of more help😁. Or if you don't want to go to the doctors (sometimes it seems like a big step, I know), speak to a teacher you trust or an adult, whoever really. They will probably be able to help you more as they know you better.

    (I've had previous experience of anxiety and the same symptoms you have, that's how I know😂)
