Feeling terrible for a month now

Posted , 7 users are following.

Im hoping some of the people reading this site might be able to shed some light on what Im going through. A month ago I started feeling unbalanced and dizzy then after a few days I got dramatically worse, Extreme unbalanced feeling with very wobbly legs that feel like they are shaky, dramatic loss of appetite and extreme fatigue, constipation and this awful feeling that Im nervous shaking inside but look normal on the outside. Numbness in my legs, feet, hands, lower back etc and a humming vibrating sensation in my head thats most noticible when Im in bed. Ive had loads of blood tests that all seem pretty normal and are waiting on a specialist apt and possibly mri scans etc, Im def not as bad as I was a few weeks ago but still dont have a great appetite but better than it was in the beggining and still have the wobbly legs and shaking feeling inside. I also worry that it might be ms but have no pain as such, Im also 54 ,Ive never suffered from anxiety that I know of but do tend to worry  a bit about getting something sinister. After reading this forum Im wondering if it could be a vitaminB12 dificiency but I dont have any shortness of breath or burning feet, any help would be greatly appreciated, or anyone who has had the same symptoms, thanks in advance lee

    Hi

    I had awful anxiety in my first couple of months and couldn't sleep. My doc prescribed trepiline which sorted both issues. So perhaps see your GP .

    Sounds exactly like me. I actually recently started taking vitamin b12 and have found some relief with it. My counselor also suggests fish oil caps that contain omega 3. Magnesium is good as well for all sorts of things. I had all kinds of weird tingling all over my body which is no where near what it was a month ago before I started the b12. Can't hurt to supplement our diets with commonly deficient vitamins!

    I can relate to you almost 100% as well. I have experienced nearly everything you describe. I think it is very common in anxiety but if you have not experienced these symptoms before, then it can be frightening. Especially if the symptoms persist.

    I think it's great and very brace of you to seek out the tests, these should put your mind at ease and truly allow for you to see how powerful anxiety can be. When all the doubts and what ifs are gone and anxiety is shown for what it is...it can be very empowering. I hope you hear back soon with regards to your other tests. I would also really recommend therapy for you as well. Learning the tools to both acknowledge and understand your anxiety is half the battle. I wish ou the best of luck and please keep us posted smile

      Thank you so much for your reply, Im really hoping I dont have anything life threatening, do you really think it could be caused by anxiety, Ive never suffered from real anxiety as such that I know of and dont have any shortness of breath etc, the attack that Ive been having for a month now had quite a sudden onset it started with just feeling dizzy then all the other awful symtoms kicked in and have shown very little sign of improvement over a month, The wobbly week legs and the vibrating/humming in my head and the unbalanced feeling as well as the trembling inside are always there. I came apon this site when I googled my symptoms. I also have little appetite and have lost weight which is so not like me, Im 54 and have never had that happen before, did you need medication to sort your symptoms out, thanks so much for your help, cheers Lee

    It sounds exactly like a panic attack to me.

    However, if you have never expierenced this before and you are now 54, it could be something that needs to be treated. I would continue to see your doctor and rule out all serious issues. Not to scare you. 

    I am sure things will be okay! Stay positive and keep us all posted!
