I'm 27 year old guy, I've been feeling weird this past few months, ever since 6 months ago when I had a really bad flu that made me feel dizzy and horribly frightening.
Sometimes I get some light headed feelings or dizziness and feeling sleepy which then lead to an anxiety like attack where I feel scared, the thought I am going to faint any time soon, but I don't faint, it goes away after a while, until I think about it, or if I'm hungry.
Last month I was taken to hospital because I was feeling faint, I felt my heart was beating fast, both paramedic and the doctor at the hospital told me the readings show that my heart is beating normally, ECG came fine, just one abnormality but she said that it there's nothing there, had blood test, urine test and x-ray in my chest to see what's causing the chest pains. Nothing....
I was told by the doctor that I'm perfectly fine and there is nothing wrong with me and that I am perfectly healthy.
(If there was something physically wrong inside they would've seen it right?)
These feelings come and go.
Things that trigger include,
feeling hungry, my legs shake and I realize I haven't eaten, I get into this anxious feeling and my stomach won't stop rumbling.
Feeling full or having acid reflux...
And if I haven't slept much.
And if I expect it or think about it..which is hard to do.
When I'm doing something active, walking running and my work is also physical, I feel ok for a bit, but as soon as I feel myself out of breath, I can't help but feel scared, the more I ignore it the more it gets scarier.
Sometimes when I'm in bed trying to sleep I get that uncomfortable feeling, that I'm going to pass out and die...
I've tried things like bringing some small cereal bar with me to counting from 99 downwards, it works for a bit, but it's still there...
It's annoying and depressing and I don't know what to do.
Have to go to my cousin's wedding tomorrow.
I have suffered from some form of social anxiety for years, but mild...These feelings seems to feel worse. Some days are worse than others.
