I thought I got over anxiety

Posted , 3 users are following.

Straight after I thought I got over anxiety and I started to relax ,it's back .i was at the bus stop when I felt as if my heart is stpping and I couldn't hear my breathing .panic mode ,feeling dizzy ,breathing fast  and controlling my breath is most tiring thing ever .i thought cancer diagnosis last July was hard but it was turning point when I actually got help .so now one year on I am cancer free ,luckily it was diagnosed early stages but anxiety is back I just dont get it .i know it's anxiety because as many times I thought I am going to pass out I never did.My main symptoms now are feeling as if I have to control my breath ,scared of holding my breath in ,pressure in my ears and nose ,not able concentrating really on anything.i am new to this forum however just let you know 2 years before cancer diagnosis ,I was just about to sleep when big bright flush went Through my head and then was diagnosed with virtigo which fair enough was cured but the fear of feeling dizzy again is still huge ,first time ever I am actually considering to take anxiety pills .would appreciate your advice and experience if they actually work and how different you feel and how quickly you feel anxiety free ?

    I am 34 Rebecca ,last July4th I was diagnosed with breast cancer,year too early for my age and doctor put it down as bad luck as I don't have any family history.then when I told psychologist about my nixie try the referred me to cbt and mindfulness course which were very effective but I stopped working with myself and always back of my mind is the fear of panic attacks coming back .i even joked to my oncologist that cancer was nothing compared to panic and anxiety I had prior diagnosis which started after I came back from Malaysia and had ear infection which caused my virtigo ,I know it is Heath anxiety and actually I am relieved that I am not only one and it reassures me it's anxiety but still I worked so hard to get over it and feel disappointed it didn't cure it .

    Hi Mia ,

    I too have virtigo and this same feeling I get . But not to worry , what I feel is you still have this vertigo and due to that you feeling the anxiety .

    In these situations I usually try to divert my mind , either call someone on phone or eat something like a chocolate or drink some water .

    Let me know if I make sense
