Pulse racing, feeling sick, dry mouth, shortness of breath, palpitation and an overwhelming feeling that something terrible is about to happen, so terrible that you can’t even contemplate it and need to get out of the place/situation that you are in.
All of these symptoms are natural bodily reactions to stress and are the body’s response to adrenalin that is being pumped around. Known as the “fight or flight” hormones and these hormones are designed quite literally to save our lives if necessary.
