ER visits 5x's, unable to work, difficult doing anything

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been in shock for awhile now. About 4 months ago, I began feeling dizzy and short of breath. They eventually progressed into severe headaches. These weren't just normal headaches, however. I call them "brain zaps". They are random extreme, painful sensations deep within my head. I've seen a neurologist and he said my MRI looked healthy. I've had blood tests done as well. I still think I'm dying somehow. I'm still feeling overwhelmed by physical symptoms. I do have anxiety but I can't distinguish if I have increased anxiety over the symptoms or the other way around. Has anyone else had extreme head symptoms to the point they can't work/function for weeks?

    Yeah I get that too and it freaks me out so much thinking the worst! When I have those bad headaches, all I wanna do is lie down! It's all anxiety how hard it may be to believe that.
