Long post; brief background I'm 28 yr old female, I don't drink or do drugs, I don't drink coffee, my sleep and diet I'm working on. Dealing with anxiety since 2012.
Whenever I'm stressed or pmsing I get dizzy but as of late I've been dizzy which is followed by a panic attack. Last Wednesday had a horrible panic attack with dizzy spells and I was shaking. I took a 25mg meclizine which usually helps but wasn't helping that day for my dizziness. At the hospital I was given half a mg of Ativan. I was prescribed 3 pills of Ativan 1mg for 3 days to take at bedtime and this where things go left....
When taken at night I did sleep but during the day I was still anxious having panic attacks and dizzy spells. Took the last pill Saturday night and I've felt horrible since then I've been so dizzy, loss of appetite, sensitivity to light and sounds, fatigue, my head feels heavy, I'm either hot or cold, I've been stuck in bed the last few days to add insult to injury I started my period Wednesday. I'm so discouraged and sad I am scared to leave my home, sitting down makes me more anxious, I feel like I've been on a boat but I haven't thrown up just occasional nausea. I found a doctors on call service that makes home visits and the doctor she scared me into thinking I might have a heart problem because my heart rate was 120 my bp was 126/88 and that was because I was having an anxiety attack talking to her clammy hands etc She prescribed me more Ativan which I will not be taking because I feel it's because of it that I've felt even more dizzy and anxious this whole week. I have 25mg meclizine but that's not working either. My mom is taking me to the doctor Monday I hope I don't die I'm so scared.
Please feel free to share your experiences I feel like I'm the only one feeling like this
