I've dealt with anxiety before in the past, but got over it. A few months ago I got a bump on the head and woke up with extreme dizziness. Of course that made the anxiety come back. Went to the doctor, said I had BPPV or labyrinthitis, dealt with symptoms with increasing anxiety. The dizziness has subsided somewhat, but the anxiety has continued. Doctor then put me on lexapro, hated it! Felt spacey and had to get off it. I still feel spacey and out of it, but everyone assures me it's just from chronic anxiety. Should I be concerned about hitting my head? Or is it just the anxiety getting to me? I am in constant fear because of this, I just feel detached and that my brain is gonna stop working.
Your head is gonna be ok, but the doctor should be prescribing meds for the anxiety, im surprised that the doctor didnt give you something from the pam family such as clonazapam,or lorazapam as they dont make you spacy they just calm you down, but they are highly addictive,. so i would take a low dose , my husband is on 2mg of clonazapam 3 times daily, but i would start with the 5mg clonazapam if i were you, i would ask your doc about it, but if you have addiction problems do not take it, u need any other help , PM me
get a second opinion you might have depression.but the bump on your head should be checked out. did you fall and hit your head? this should be checked out maybe they will run a bran scan. good luck.mandy876
