Customer Question

Yesterday I had a panic attack, I have anxiety, but this was was set off because I felt ill, and very out of sorts.
I felt weird all day after, and had a headache, a mild stomach ache, and my throat was starting to hurt.
I was unable to sleep for more than 30 mins at a time last night, I lost track of how many times I woke up. I've woken up this morning with a severe stomach ache, a sore throat, a headache (like a pressure headache) nausea, and trouble focusing. My skin also hurts, if I run my hand along my arm I feel sunburnt (I am not) I'm not going to go as far as saying I have light sensitivity, but I'm having to squint a lot.
I have no major conditions, have just dealt with anxiety and depression in the past. I have been clear of these for a few years but have relapsed since arriving in Santiago, Chile, 6 weeks ago.

It sounds like you have the flu with a heavy dose of your underlying anxiety.

So. What should you do?

I suggest you try to find a local doctor who can help you get your anxiety under control. As you know this may take a combination of medication and talk therapy.
