Does anyone else wake up with a headache & dizzyness and go to bed the same? I have also got a really bad dull ache/pain at the back of the left side of my head that will only go when I apply pressure to it, I am taking propranolol for heart pulpertations and Setraline for the anxiety which isn't helping yet! Yesterday I was in a well known burger place and went to change my 6 month old sons nappy and I was so dizzy & sweaty it was terrifying, it effects everything I do, I can't go into the shops without feeling this way to it gets to the point that I have to leave cos it's that bad!! I find myself as well constantly checking my neck & the side of my face for lumps cos I get so stressed it makes my face go numb & feel funny I'm convinced that there is something going on there cos it all seems to be on the left side of my face & head! I just don't know why I keep feeling this way? I have been to numerous doctors and nothing but I feel so crappy that it's hard to believe it's just anxiety honestly is, I think I could cope with the heart pulpertations, sweats, shakes etc but the dizzyness, headaches & pressure is a joke it's constant and effecting my life I have 2 children so I need to be well for them, I was feeling like this b4 my son was born this year but whilst I was pregnant I was fine had no anxiety at all but a month after he was born it all came back 10 times worse for no reason and now I feel stuck with no way out! I have seen 2 private ent specialists, had a ct scan & seen a neurologist for the headaches, had 2 ecg's been to a&e with the dizzyness & heart pulpertations and all was fine despite still feeling dizzy still after I left, I have done the online cbt course & starting a group session this week but I'm still 100% convinced that something else is going on somewhere but I don't know what else to do! I have spoken to family and they all say they understand but they don't, it's a constant fear that they are going to find me one day or I'm scared that something is being missed somewhere as the doctors say they can only treat the symptoms that I present at the time, I have been to the docs at least once a week for the last few months to the point I'm on first name terms with the receptionist which isn't good, I'm embarrassed to keep going back all the time but I don't know what else to do, they have done all the bloods etc and other than folate all is well but I still feel so poo, I just don't know how to get out of this mental torture that they call health anxiety!!!
