Around 3 weeks ago, I started getting a strange wave sensation through my brain for a couple of days. I was having heart palpitations too and a feeling that I needed to tighten my whole body very quickly and couldn't keep my legs still, I had headaches and blurred vision on and off. I get a lot of weird sensations, but this was the strangest.
My Doctor said it's anxiety (5th Doctor to say so) but they never let me fully explain what is going on. They sort of smirk at me and say it's all normal. I went into hospital a while ago for an ECG and I've had blood tests etc and everything was fine. This shock sensation is back. It's hard to describe, but it's NOT like an electrical feeling and it's not painful, but it puts me on edge. It went away last time after I had a relaxing weekend, but nothing stressful has happend recently so I can't put my finger on why it has returned.
Both times I've had it, I couldn't sleep. I was stuck between half awake and asleep, with heart palps and very vivid dreams while my eyes darted around. It was worse when I was on my back and I just felt that my heart was so weak. I kept moaning in my "sleep" and I was 100% certain I was about to die. Even thinking about how it felt scares me and I'm too scared to sleep tonight.
Does any of this sound like anxiety? I just can't accept that it's making me feel this way and it's so hard to get an appointment with a Doctor.
