Huh, so I can think of 4 years in a row now where I start to get anxiety symptoms in August. Mostly heart palps & numb skin. Last August it got so bad I could not even shower w/o crying b/c the water felt like pins & needles.
Well... it's starting again. So I'm starting to think it must be seasonal. I had realized once I got ulcer's in the spring & fall. I no longer get ulcers now, but I get sinus infections & August this numbing thing (I took antibiotics form 30 days in August! Blah - that was fun with all the yeast infections it brings on too - doc hoping to eradicate any residual sinus bacteria.)
So even though I don't have a sinus infection, I do feel my sinus swelling & that stupid numbness feeling.
I've looked up seasonal anxiety & see it related to SAD ... but mine go away before winter starts, so I don't think it's SAD.
Could this just be how my body reacts to allergies? I don't feel stressed/scared, just have all symptoms w/o the stress & fear.
(I am taking allergies meds too.)
