Heightened Anxiety

My anxiety is sky high right now. My heart is pumping away, I'm getting tunnel vision, I'm getting hot flushes, constant need to go to the loo, aches in joints, the works. 

It's all to do with this pending diagnosis. Having read about autism I now want the diagnosis but am anxious that I won't get it for some reason. Maybe I didn't tell them enough or there's some detail that they didn't ask about in the assessment that I'll rely upon for the diagnosis. Being high functioning I think it's going to be touch and go whether I qualify for a diagnosis or not. But having spoken to work I know I will be relying on a diagnosis in order to get the help that I need before things start to go wrong again.

And now I can't sleep because I'm too anxious. What can I do to relax?

    These symptoms are pretty serious, physiologically speaking, so make sure you mention them, as they are a significant factor in respect of a diagnosis for Autistic Spectrum Disorder (A.S.D.), or Asperger's Syndrome (A.S.), and of course your long term health.

    Might I also suggest that you speak to your G.P. about this as soon as is possible, perhaps?

    Maybe write a letter or an e-mail of explanation before making an appointment with your G.P., so that they know what is about it, and this issue can be dealt with directly without going off track due too anxious deviations and what not.
