Anxiety?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi all I'm new to this and I've just been diagnosed with anxiety I've had bloods ultra scans 72hr heart trace all came back normal I'm going for heart n artery testing in October.to put my mind at rest.ive got all the sympthoms which I've had now for 6months.the dizzy ness is driving me insane along with pulsating in the bottom of my breast bone n rapid heart.can u get anxiety for no reason I did have a family problem a year ago could this be a delayed reaction?i lost my dad in May this year n my anxiety hasn't got worse he was my world.im on no med apart from sleeping tablets I could go on beta blockers but have declined them.does this get any better?i just wish I knew why this had happened to me and then maybe I would accept this horrible illness.does anyone suffer really bad dizziness?confused

    Hi Claire, yes it all sounds familiar, brain scans, heart tests etc and all normal so deff yes sounds like anxieti, anxieti aparently can strike at any time and out of the blue.. And one of the main sympthomps can be dizziness I've been dizzy ALL day today :-(

    All I can say is ( try to stay strong) and hopefully will get better x

      Your most welcome Claire, I agree it's good and great support help to hear from other sufferers, other people do listen to us but they don't know what we mean or how we feel because they don't suffer from it.

      I'm the same everyday I get one or various sympthoms, but also to be positive sometimes I go few days without any..

      Of course your Dr knows your not crazy or think you are.. 

      I can't answer if it goes for ever or not cause I think it's something that stays there " always" ( sorry to say this) but sometimes with less strength .. 

      But hey we have to remain positive, life is great no matter what and this "F.." Anxieti won't be stronger than us!

    I get really bad dizziness  

    Mines triggered from stress  at work 

    I do loads of research  into anxiety to put my mind at ease thin gs are getting slightly better but I'm on citalpram  and propranolol  

    Propranolol  works a treat for me takes all the fast racing heart problems away  and tight chest 

    I've since realised I get alcohol anxiety if I have to much to drink then the next or 2 is a k nightmare for me it's like I'm not on meds all over again 

    Sorry for rabbiting  on a bit 

    Hope you get better soon

      Yeh Claire they work great but apparently  it takes some hard work to get off them but ill deal with that when I need to 

      Citalpram  gave me awful  side effects when I first started  on them though, insomnia  weird dreams numbness  more than usual

      They wear off though 

      A doctor  once told me "Josh it's all just a chemical imbalance  in your head relax as much as you can" really helped me when I get symptoms  I just think  of that
