4 years ago my life was extremely stressful...i was only 21 years old...working part time trying to go to college full-time. My mother and I got kicked out of our home due to money issues we were forced to move somewhere we werent happy...my car was broke down everything was going wrong. I came home to find my mother trying to overdose on pills...so after weeks of extreme stress I woke up feeling heavy headed unbalanced. My brain felt like it was vibrating I was anxious. It felt like i was in a dream like state disconnected from everything. I ended up at the ER. They just diagnosed me with an inner ear infection and sent me home saying it would get better in a few weeks. I was almost blacking out and filled with fear. I had always been an anxious person. I had my first panic attacks at age 13 due to more stress at the time. So anyway I've felt dream like and heavy headed for 4 years...the anxiety went away for a while but the dream like heavy head never did. It got worse a month or two ago due to more stress...my doctor gave me escitalopram (lexapro) to take. I havent taken it yet cause im scared and worried about the meds side effects...what do you guys think anyone experience anxiety like this? or should I ask for more tests at the doctor? I keep thinking its probably something worse....a brain tumor maybe?
