Unfortunately, after a year of tests and a small fortune, I still am unable to completely accept anxiety as my diagnosis.
My chest pain is too real and happens BEFORE the anxiety starts.
Is your dizziness all the time or just when you panic ?
It doesn't seem to be related to anxiety or panic attacks. It just will happen. For no apparent reason. It's just another reason why I can't accept the anxiety diagnosis. Also, I have shortness of breath that happens out of the blue. For example, I was just brushing my teeth and started to feel so out of breath. This is crazy. I was just brushing teeth, not stressed about anything or feeling any anxiety. But once the shortness of breath happened my mind goes nuts.
The scary thing about anxiety is that you can have symptoms anytime anywhere. They can all happen independly and seem unassociated. Thats what was happening to me... but realizing its just anxiety and taking meds really helped me out a ton!
I have anxiety attacks. I saw a therapist to help me find out what causes them and found out that most times it is a chemical imbalance. I found out I had 3 times the testostrone in my body. Also, ended up having a dermoid on my ovary. The therapist helped me to manage the attacks. Also, since I have leveled my testostrone levels and had the dermoid removed I have done better. Anxiety is when your body gets too much of the chemical that causes your fight or flight senses. I also realized that there were some things in my past that also triggered them. Please continue to seek help. I now take Zoloft and spirotalactin (sp) and it has helped me so much.
