Four months after retiring I began experiencing the worst anxiety. Absolutely no reason for it, just started about 4:00am.
Lots of awful feelings, worrying, especially in the morning. Stomach/digestive issues. Had a complete physical with stress EKG, bloodwork, etc. All came back normal.
Now I'm reading online that this is a fairly common issue. Do not want to give in to this so I've signed up for courses at college and am exercising 3 days a week.
Will this go away?
Also retirement was my idea at age 72 although I did not plan anything great for after retirement.
