Dealing with vagus nerve anxiety: my personal experience

I’ve been struggling with vagus nerve anxiety for a while now, and I have to say it can be a real battle. At times, I feel my heart racing or pounding in my chest, and suddenly my body tenses up and becomes overwhelmed with fear. It’s like I am constantly on edge and cannot trust that everything will be okay. Over the years, I’ve done all sorts of things to try and calm down – deep breathing, yoga poses, meditation – but nothing ever seemed to really stick.

Recently though, I discovered something that has actually helped me manage the symptoms of vagus nerve anxiety: acupuncture. After speaking with an acupuncturist about my condition, they suggested that we take a holistic approach to treating my symptoms which involved weekly sessions of acupuncture coupled with mindful daily practices like journaling my thoughts and feelings, or engaging in activities like walking or doing some light stretching. Just this week I completed my second session of acupuncture and already I can feel a difference in the way I am approaching the moments of anxiety that come up; instead trying to fight them off (like I had been before), now I’m learning how to accept them as they come so that their grip on me slowly loosens over time.

Of course there are still moments when the anxious feeling creeps back in but overall this newfound combination of treatment is helping me make progress towards calming down quicker than anything else ever has before. If you’re also dealing with vagus nerve anxiety, know that you are not alone – there are ways out!
