Feeling anxious could include physical symptoms of having a faster heartbeat, chest pain, headaches and feeling breathlessness. Feeling anxious can also have mental symptoms such as feeling tense, worrying and difficulty concentrating.

  • Try talking to family, friends or someone you trust about how you are feeling.
  • Going to the doctor could feel like a big step but if you are struggling with how you are feeling, your GP can help you find support available in your area.
