Numbness , racing heart , chest discomfort , lack pf sleep and hunger with feeling of tiredness all are the features of anxiety.

It would be ideal foe you to ask your dr that in addition to Xanax that will control acute anxiety , you should start Tan Citalopram 10 mg once at breakfast for long term anxiety control please .

This is nothing but anxiety .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
