Fear of fainting

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey guys, so I just wanted to talk about what I've been feeling. So i know I most likely have anxiety that just comes out of no where but when that happens I get like shortness of Breathe and the after that I get like dizziness and lightheadedness. And then that's when I freak out more and get tingly cause I'm scared i might faint or atleast it feels like it but it has never happened once. I just wanted to get that off my chest. As of right now I feel tingly and my head feels tight.

    Yup...That happens so me too!  I think it helps me to remember that I NEVER have passed out and it helps to remember that it only last a little bit and then it gone.

    I get the dizziness, and the feeling that I'm going to faint as well. Both of those are my main triggers, so the anxiety gets worse, and that often leads to a panic attack. You're definitely not alone.
