    So ever since starting sixthform, for some reason I have experienced on onslaught of problems ad its reakky beginning to take its toll. I really don't know why these are happening and i dont think its to do with the amount of work i do etc, i cant seem to find what teh cause is. I keep on around the afternoon start getting stressed and worried for no reason and feel as though i'm running out of time for something (which i dont know what that is?). I start getting nervous knots in my stomach and my heart pounds for hours to the extent i keep on falling asleep at around 6 am despite going to bed at 10.30 pm,. The whole sleep thing really stresses me out as well. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this, if so please help in all honesty im very scared as this had lastes since september :'(

    I suggest you visit your doctor. Whatever the cause is they can help you work it out and manage it.

    Can you think of any cause at all? Even if it seems like it wouldn't have this sort of impact. Any diet change, stressful events etc? Anything you can think of could help the doctor get to the bottom of it.

    You can also talk to your college (student support or a trusted teacher) so they can help you with that side of things. They could arrange it so you can take time out of class if it happens then or so you can go work in a quiet place. If music or anything help you calm down (it did for me) you could ask to have headphones in while working.

    To me it sounds like there is either a physical or mental condition which is messing with you. Mental health problems can be triggered by a variety of things including stress, traumatic events and even physical condtions like vitamin deficiencies. I suggest you go to mind.org for some more information about that and see if any of it helps you at all.

    I know this is very scary to deal with, but you are not alone so don't be afraid to ask for help. You are not weak or crazy for asking for help if you need it. If anything it's smart and brave to know when you need help

    I too recommend going to your Doctor; I suffer from Anxiety and Stress too but even though its easier said than done: try to keep in mind that everything IS going to be okay. Everything comes to pass in its own time so just do what you can, as long as you try your best. Focus on what you need to do right now rather than everything at once and deal with things a bit at a time.
