About a week ago, I started having a weird sensation in my head throughout the day. I find it really difficult to explain, it's just like a wave that lasts less than a second. Then a few days ago I had a very mild headache and my vision started to go blurry every now and then (this does happen on occasion, but was happening more frequently). The thing that worried me the most was that I would also get a feeling that I needed to quickly stretch my arms and legs. I couldn't sleep at night because my eyes were moving around and the slightest sound would wake me. I slept better last night, but when I woke up every muscle in my body felt heavy and achy. I keep getting heart palpitations (which I've been to hospital for many times only to be told everything is fine)
I sometimes feel presure behind my nose and eyes as well. I do suffer from crippling anxiety, but I wasn't anymore stressed out than usual when it started to happen. I completely went off of cigarettes and tea which I drink often. I went to my Doctor and she told me all this was due to a tension headache caused by anxiety. She checked my eyes, blood pressure and heart beat and told me to come back in the week for antidepressants. I tried to explain that I didn't even really have that much of a headache, just that weird wave going through my brain, but she didn't seem concerned.
Today I was feeling more dizzy than yesterday and I was walking through the supermarket and had a disagreement with my partner. I felt that I had no control over my anger and my heart started to flutter and I got lightheaded and then I suddenly felt that I wasn't in my body anymore. I was moving really slowly. It didn't feel that I was outside of my body, it was like I was in there just not understanding what was going on.
Could anyone just let me know if they think this is anxiety? I keep thinking it's a problem with my brain because I should not be having these strange waves along with poor vision all of a sudden. I don't have any pain, I'm just more worried than anything. I do have a hell of a lot of anxiety symptoms, but these have just come on suddenly in the last week.
