Alright so for the past two weeks I have been super dizzy when walking around, I went to urgent care and they diagnosed me with labyrinthitis. Nothing was wrong except I was just dizzy and lightheaded with feelings of brain fog. With this I was fine just issues walking. I have never been to a psychiatrist or diagnosed with anxiety or depression, but I do experience a lot of symptoms of anxiety.
Then one night I randomly got insomnia and didn't fall asleep until 4am which is extremely unlike me because I always get wonderful sleep. So the next day after the insomnia I was fine, just feeling very depressed and filled with anxiety. That night as I was dosing off I would wake up gasping for air and my body went into a panic. My heart rate was out of control and I felt like I was actullay dying (as stupid as that sounds), but my mom called 911 and I was rushed to the ER and they said everything was fine but wants me to see a cardiologist due to my heart rate. I am not for sure if that was a panic attack or not. But I do have a history of tachacardyia, and I am going to cardiologist to get that ruled out. But my heart doesn't seem to be a problem that much during this so?
The next night of sleep I experienced the weirdest, scariest sensation EVER. I cannot even fully describe how it feels! But this is the best I can do at explaining. First when I was trying to fall asleep I would loose my breath and not be able to breath, but that slowly went away. It would feel like I was just slipping into like death with no breathing and I would just wake up a little alerted. So next as I was dosing off, it would feel like a certain part of my body would go numb and just pulse and I would just lay through it and wait for it to pass. Then it would happen in my head. It would feel like a wave/ surge would be going over my head and I just have to suffer through it. It also felt like when this is happening my eyes roll to the back of my head. There is no pain when this happens, just a very frightening feeling. Also feels like a episode of panic goes throughout my whole body as this happens. I don't know if this makes any sense though.
I can't even search up my symptoms because I don't know how to put this sensation into words! It doesn't feel dangerous but it definitely doesn't feel normal. My parents want me to see a neurologist but the thing is I can't see one for months because this isn't considered urgent. I am just unsure if this is something that's wrong with me or anxiety can cause this.
I am so exauhsted due to the fact I haven't gotten more than five hours of sleep the pay few nights, but I physically cannot sleep while this sensation is happening. I am actullay terrified to fall asleep now because this only happens when I am about to sleep. So what I am trying to get at if this is something I should actullay seek medical help for or this sounds like an anxiety problems.
Help would be great because I am an 18 year old active healthy girl and this has never happened in my life and I am terrified and want some relief. Pls help!!:-(
