I hope your all well. I was doing well and now its back. Some of you know I've had dizziness now for 9 months and I've been working on that with a vestibular therapist and I started the exercises last week, where i have to look at a certain thing on the wall while sitting and move my head up and down and then side to side, and since starting the dizziness has gotten a bit worse, in researching it seems sometimes this will happen, so I try not to let it get to me, because the dizziness much worse with anxiety. I have also had to up my thyroid meds by .25 mcg in the past week and not sure if this could be causing anxiety. But I've also been becoming worried about my husband in the past 2 days, as he has complained about his head hurting for 2 days, now this morning he has told me he has lost 5 pounds in the past week, and for no apparent reason. He has had what he thinks is sinus congestion and says he has felt like eating, but I have to tell you, as soon as he told me about the weight, I could immediately feel it coming on, my vision in my left eye got weird, then as I was driving to work, which can give me anxiety because of the traffic and this dizzy stuff, I could feel it worsiening and I was thinking to myself, don't worry he is ok, don't worry could be the sinus thing, thats when I realized it was real anxiety. So I came here to talk instead of trying to handle it alone. This health anxiety stuff doesn't ever really go away, does it? I get scared as soon as I hear about the possibility of sickness.
I also had what i'm guessing was a bad anxiety attack saturday, I had to go to another funeral, and I took a 1/2 a xanax before as I could feel the anxiety coming on. Well once I got there and sat down, I felt off balance and that finally settled, but when going in for the reception, I noticed getting food, my hands were shaking and felt like I was going to pass out and I wanted to get out, but I didn't. I felt weird but I stayed. I've noticed lately that when I'm going in where there are alot of people, I get anxious. I never felt this way before. No anxiety around people. But now i'm noticing this more and more. But I continue to go out.
All the symptoms are back, dizziness, headache, neck tension, head pressure, shaking feeling inside, vision off, worry
It seems I'm coming full circle, anxiety is back like before, dizziness causes it, sickness causes it, thyroid causes it. But I have to keep trying to be ok. I tell myself don't worry about the things that have not happened, but thats hard as most of you know. So here I am, talking to you about it, so I don't keep it inside. I'm very thankful I can come here and have others who understand.
