fed up!

Posted , 4 users are following.

im lightheaded and tired all the time and its starting to scare me now!

Had blood tests which said my thyroid is slightly out of range and now i am waiting till next month in order to have another one in order to review this.

In the mean time, my anxiety is through the roof and I keep thinking it is something else due to this constant lightheadness and tiredness. I keep bursting into tears because I am so down.

Is this a sign of anxiety? Am I being silly?

does anyone have any way i can deal with this until I can get back to the doctors?

    Are you getting enough protein in your diet? I had an eating disorder and in recovery I learnt a lot about blood sugar levels and protein and the affect they have on your brain and body. Making you feel really tired and dizzy when lacking proteins.

    Hi Sam I have the same thing! I'm had a majoir panic attack beginning of March an since then I've been anxious every day, I get so lightheaded an spaced out it's as if I'm walking on air.. It's a scary feeling it's like your in a bit of a dream which sounds so stupid! 

    I had another panic attack on Monday with a migrane so I'm going to the doctors today to see if it could be the pill that I'm on? Because I was form before I started that! Xx

    The first thing the doctor will probably ask is has anything changed in your life situation over the last few weeks or months since these symptoms started? Then you have to evalute it and go from there. if nothing has changed then it could be a variety of issues causing the problem. With me, I started menopause and suddenly my panic attacks are back, depression, you name it and I got it. I have had my doctor check my thyroid, potassium levels, and my Gerd for any changes. Once diagnoised with anxiety, I am learning to think positive and tell myself it's just a panic attack and I am not dying, I can gain better control over it. When I start to feel this way at work, I just excuse myself to the bathroom to calm myself down. Breathing in and out in a paper bag helps as well if the attack is severe. Life stressors are going to happen and there is nothing we can do about it, but we can change the outcome by choice with mind control. Choose to be happy or depressed. Hope this helped.
