I go through the same thing every day. Every day I feel like im going to die and every day I don't then I go through the same thing the next day. Its really fustrating. My problem is that I get that "got to get out of here" feeling but i have a problem that most people don't have. I get this feeling like water is running through my head or maybe I'm bleeding inside my head. Except its cold and I don't feel any pain just a sense of doom and then I get the normal feelings of anxiety. I only really feel it when im in an uncomfortable situation like school or like going to take the Sat or just when im just feeling bad its a really horrible feeling. I too have gotten several blood tests and an MRI on my head. Everthing came back Ok except for low vitamin D and overactive thyroid. THis all can be the reason for my problem but whatever it is is terrifying. I hope that the fact that im struggling just as you are and still in the fight encourages you to keep fighting and just be.

sound like just anxiety attacks  unless you have asthma  however your blood sugar and thyroid should be checked!!!

Hi, what you are feelings is exactly like my wife's experience. it is without a doubt an anxiety attack. Please remember that no matter how strong the sensations can be, it is actually harmless and can be cured.  Check out this blog on ocd at www.ocdnomore.blogspot.com. I have learned a  lot from it that I am now able to overcome my ocd.

You are not going crazy.  It does sound like you have anxiety.  I am not a dr so I can't say for sure but if you have had tests and they all came back negative for anything else then I would say yes it is anxiety.

Please know you are not alone.  I experience the same sensations you are talking about and it is so unpredictable.  I have no idea when it is going to hit me.

You can overcome this but you have to get to the bottom of what is causing your anxiety.  I would suggest that you start by seeing a psychatrist.  Sometimes it is just nice to have that outlet and talking to someone who understands and isn't going to judge you can be extremely helpful.  Together you and your psychatrist can figure out a treatment plan that works for you and start to get to the bottom of what is causing your anxiety.

Also you might want to try and keep a journal.  Just getting some of those feelings that you have built up inside out is a relief.  Make sure you are eating healthy and getting enough sleep and exercise.

This forum is a great support system.  Everyone has been there in one way or another so please keep posting.  Keep us posted on your progress.
