Then, your heart starts beating faster, and you feel the need to sit down. Or sleep. Or vomit. You know your body is pleading for something — but what does it want? What does it need? You continue to wonder as your body begins to sweat. These symptoms worry you, of course. “Is this a panic attack?” you ask yourself. After all, you’ve experience severe anxiety before. You know these uncomfortable sensations. You know that a racing heart and a woozy head usually signify an intense head-on collision with panic is just around the corner. Or is something else amiss?

Many hormones have multiple functions that can change everything on feeling normal or tired, they change your moods and your daily body routines. See your doctor because these are very important to get balanced.
