Constant brain fuzziness and dizziness for 2+ years

Posted , 3 users are following.

For the last 2+ years I have struggled with constant brain fuzziness and dizziness which just randomly started one day but is constant for 24 hours a day. It kind of feels like I am very light headed all the time. This has come with a whole range of symptoms also which have got increasingly worse over the last month or so. These include; chest pain in the left side, loss of feeling in mouth and hands, shooting pains down the arms, pressure in the head and nose, random and involuntary disassociation, extreme anxiety/dread feeling in chest, struggling to focus eyes, very poor concentration, poor short term and long term memory, struggling to breathe in properly, feeling like I'm not breathing, struggling to swallow and quite a few more random. Over the last month it has got much worse where everyday life is now just difficult. I have had MRIs and EKGs, many blood tests and the doctors are mainly putting it down to anxiety, which i know can be physical however I just know it is something more. Has anyone experienced/is experiences anything similar?

    I have had very similar symptoms and doctors can't figure out what's wrong with me. my symptoms occur primarily on the left side of my body and the are neck pain, head pressure, random tinnitus noise and muffled hearing, sometimes it feels like I'm not breathing properly, trouble swallowing, stabbing pain in the back left side of head, racing heart upon waking up, irregular heart rhythm and ectopic beats, heart flutters, chest pain, shoulder pain, clavicle pain upper back pain, arm pain, pins and needles, lots of gas and burping, muscle twitches all over body, brain fog, derealization, geographic tongue, enlarged lymph nodes and dialated neck veins. I'm sure I'm missing some symptoms because there are just too many to list. I have been absolutely miserable since this has all begun. I've also seen many specialists, have had all types of tests, and no answers.

    hi lily. no answers yet. all doctors seem to think it's anxiety driven. however all of these problems is what's causing my anxiety. my symptoms still persist, and some days are better than others, but what's worse is my "etopic" heartbeats seem to be getting worse and do not feel harmless as doctors proclaim. I'm literally living in misery and just want answers.
