I am so scared someone please help me!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Ok a few weeks ago I was watching tv and I started to feel weird and my face dropped and I couldn't talk or walk I thought I had a stroke. I called 911 I stayed at the hospital and they did blood work, MRI, ct scan, checked my heart. Everything was fine I had no signs or stroke or anything bad. I was just getting bad headaches and had vision changes. Last week it happened again and I had 2 attacks. My face went numb along with my entire left side of my body and I was taken to the hospital and they said I was fine. I have trouble sleeping now. I'm terrified to be by myself. And I'm scared at night. My face still feels numb then I freak out. My foot and leg feels tingly along with my left arm. This came out of nowhere. I don't know what's going on. Is this stroke like symptoms anxiety? I feel alone and scared!

    Omg this is so me! It's like I have written this myself ! I'm going through exactly the same symptoms as you and I also thought I was having mini stroke and was admitted to the Emergency Medical Centre and it turns out it was just a panic attack ! (not just a panic attack, as they are so distressing and real) I have also been experiencing face numbness, weakness and now my jaw feels locked!

    I feel paralysed with fear, not eating and hardly sleeping x

    I hope lots of people respond to this as I am extremely worried ab symptoms... X

    You need to talk to your family doctor regards this, it may be Anxiety and there are basic treatment plans you could be introduced to.

    You could try Breathing Techniques to help you control any anxiety or even Relaxation Techniques may also give relife

    Mindfulness is the favoured technique at this time and there are books explaning the complete technique

    You could also ask your GP, He may have tapes that could help

      Hi Bob, you helped me the other day too ;-)

      Can you tell me, I am extremely anxious at the monent, I had another panic attack last night and my jaw feels like it's tight, and my tongue feels swollen ?

      Was close to calling the medics but thought I'd post on here first.

      Sometimes if you grind your teeth the pressure on the jaw can be so strong it can lock your jaw for a time. This is why you need a brace to protect your teeth. These are worn at night. Sometimes the tongue may also become sore.if you have been pushing the tongue may also be effected if the jaw is tight

      Talk to both dentist and GP, medications can be given to give relief to your Anxiety

      Good Luck
