Hello! When you're having a full blown panic attack or anxiety attack, the symptoms — chest pain, flushing skin, racing heart, and difficulty breathing — can make you feel as though you're going to faint, lose your mind, or die. - contact professionals if needed. Stay strong!

I have been on the same train..I was diagnosed with UC in my middle school and since then it has been a roller coster ride of flares ...more flares..however, I now have a better understanding of the causes..yes, stress and anxiety. Sometimes I wonder whether it is the side effect of meds or vice versa.
