Anxiety Disorders/Anxiety


I am a 35 year old female.
I have suffer from health anxiety/hypochondria for at least 12 years now.
A few months ago after having a couple of panic attacks, I started having this prickly skin feeling here and there all over my body.
I went to my Dr. and Dermatologist, but everything seems normal.
I want to know if stingy or prickly skin sensations are a normal symptom in people with anxiety?

Thank you for your time!

Hi Jillian,

Yes, any skin condition could be the result of hypoglycemia ( This can be treated by going on a Hypoglycemic Diet
