    I get this weird feeling in my chest sometimes, not that often but not really spread out, maybe once or twice a month, sometimes none or sometimes more. I can't really describe it but it just kind of feels empty, and I feel really low for a while, usually for around an hour or so. Does anyone know why this might be and if it's normal?

    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one, but I'm not glad that you get it too, it's such a horrible feeling.
    Things are okay I guess, I'm in the middle of my GCSEs so I've got exam stress but nothing too severe. My parents split up about three years ago and I really struggled with anger issues and I'm not really sure how to describe it but I always got really stressed out so bad I was crying uncontrolably and it took me a long time to get back to normal, but these issues seem to have resolved, I still get stressed but not as bad as I used to so I can control it, and my parents argue a lot and sometimes I'm stuck in the middle, but I have wuite a good relationships with both of them, although i used to have a bad relationship with my dad which has got so much better in the past year, and I used to be really close with my mum but now we're not as close

    damn yeah, that might explain the "empty" feeling - sounds as if you had a pretty rough time mentally?
    i have social anxiety because i was bullied for 5 years pretty much nonstop, that's obviously not the same case as yours but i'm sure there's a link between you feeling empty and me feeling empty
    i would recommend going to a psychologist honestly? like i know that's a bit simple but i'm not exactly qualified and i don't know if anyone else on this forum is either
    might help to talk it out and get things off your chest

    Thanks, maybe I should but I don't like the idea of having to talk to my parents about it, my family think I'm a bit of a hypochondriac so I'm not sure how seriously they'll take it, they might just tell me that it's nothing or it's just exam stress which would make me feel worse

    well i mean, if you need it, you need it... surely they'd give way if you told them about the empty feeling, right? like that can't be "hypochondriac", i'd be worried if my kid told me things like that
    have you had that feeling before or did it come about once exam season started?

    I've gotten it for quite a while, I can't even remember when I first got it. I guess so, thank you, I'll think about talking to them, I might try talking to my mum about about it rather than my dad because I feel she'll take it more seriously, or she might just tell me it's nothing, but I suppose it's better to tell her

    So it's quite common?

    Possibly an orgasm?
