As usual, it's best to discus your concerns with your doctor, it sounds like fairly typical anxiety, but to be safest, talk to a doctor, he/she may be able to prescribe medication to help relieve some of the symptoms. . Of your itemized symptoms, I have the following to say: Derealization, I have struggled with this on and off over the years. Panic Attacks, no one that hasn't experienced one will ever understand these. Loss of concentration. My therapist said we have a working memory, it's limited. The more we're anxious, the more crowded the working memory is, and the less we can concentrate. Fear of bridges, I had this when much younger, and the city is nothing but bridges, I got over it when going to Tech School and walking with others day after day at lunch over the bridge near the school. I always feel like I'm being drawn off of heights, and have spoken to others that have similar feelings, I think it's pretty natural. Numbness in fingers, and a dry mouth, I wonder if you're hyperventilating. Do a little research on correct breathing, it can often help you to relax.

It is a process I think it is maturity:D In time I had learn to adjust to it. Don't worry, listen to your body and try not to fight against it. Think of it as this is a step in your life, when you just have to rest a bit.

Sorry about the smiley face there, I actually wanted to make this one :D Your problem is serious, because of too much stress you had in the past, now you have to slow down a bit. Take care Isabelle!
