Lightheaded

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey guys. It's almost 4am and I'm still awake. I have been feeling lightheaded for the past 2-3 hours and I just feel terrible. My heart isn't racing or anything because the propanolol won't let it, but if I wasn't taking the meds I know it would be trying to come out of my chest right now. My brain feels so tired and I feel a lot of pressure in my head whenever I do certain things. I've been contemplating just taking myself to the ER for the past few hours, but whenever I go to the ER they just tell me the same thing and send me home with follow up instructions for my GP. If anyone is awake, please talk to me.

    You're not alone. Hugs to you. This is how I feel most nights. Tiredness plus anxiety is probs the cause. I am sending you a virtual blanket and some chocolate lol x

      I appreciate that very much. For the past few nights I've been going to bed really late and sleep for half of the day. My son always wakes me, I feel so bad. I will hug this blanket forever. xoxo

    Try some relaxation music and think of your favourite place, like being on holiday or a lovely warm comfort you have, like being a home with the fire light surrounded by your loved ones, take big deep breaths in through your nose and out through you mouth, do this for about 2 mins it is great relaxation technique, sleep deprivation fuels anxiety and I know because I have a 6 month old who doesn't sleep and some days I survive in about 3 hrs sleep and my anxiety is dreadful.

    It's a bugger of a thing I HATE ANXIETY !!!!!! Hope you can try and relax a wee bit

      Children are a blessing, my son is two he will be three in a month. He's the main reason for me pushing myself to get better..
