I have had anxiety for 10 years, I wasn't originally depressed but become very low because of the ongoing anxiety knocking my confidence down to zero. I can understand and get my head around the nervous feelings and constant daily anxiety but it is when I feel faint that it really gets me down, this is like another feeling entirely. It feels like you can't concentrate on what you are doing, you feel unsteady and as if you are ready to fall to the floor, afterwards I feel very cold, tired and shaky and it can take hours for me to feel right. This adds to the daily anxiety as it is frustrating, sometimes when it happens, I can't really say I am anxious at that moment until this feeling comes over me and then I just get down because I wander if I can ever live a carefree life again without constantly getting this. It hadn't happened for a few months until this week, I thought I was getting there but this has set me back. I have been on ad's for 8 months although I feel they have done little for the anxiety, they may have lifted my mood slightly but that could have just been time and and talking??
Does anyone else have this as part of anxiety or could it be a seperate issue? I have had blood tests for everything - all clear and ecg for rapid heart rate but this came back ok and heart rate is due to the tablets.
