Feeling of passing out??
Do many of you who have Severe Panic Disorder or GAD often feel like they are going to pass out?  I was at a function in which I stood up and became dizzy.  I am unsure if this feeling prompted a panic attack because after I sat back down I felt as if I were going to pass out.  My head became tingly and I felt cold. I also became nauseated. This lasted for about 30 minutes until I finally forced myself to get up and walk out of the function early.  Once outside I felt better other than being hit with the shakes and some tears.  Then this morning while drinking coffee I suddenly got hit with the feeling again I was going to pass out.  This time it only lasted for like 2 minutes.  I should note that this morning I do have a headache.  So what do you guys think?  Anxiety or something more?

I have gotten that in the past, for me it has been part of GAD.

You describe very typical anxiety/panic symptoms.  Of course, it never hurts to have a once over with your doc if you haven't had a physical within the past year especially, just to rule out some of the more common causes of your symptoms.

What are you doing to address your anxiety?
