OneLeadsToTheOther: When someone gets very anxious they tend to breathe harder and or faster.You might not even notice it if you are just taking deeper breaths.This can lead to symptoms like numbness or tingling in the fingers or hands or around the lips and even some dizziness and unsteadiness, sweaty palms, palpitations,"butterflies" in the stomach,you name it. My question to you : Why or how is it you get anxious?
