I broke my right wrist just before Christmas - fell off a chair whilst putting up Christmas decorations - yes it was not clever I know! I had the distal radius fracture pinned and plated and did 6 weeks in a cast, but when the cast was taken off which I was longing for, I found I was scared to walk anywhere and felt light headed and dizzy, this has continued over three months since the accident. I feel anxious a lot of the time which I never did before the accident, I used to go horse riding cycling etc, now I am scared to walk it is awful. I have been taking herbal medication for anxiety and have had 4 sessions of clinical hypnotherapy some days are not too bad but others are awful. Has anyone else had this anxiety and panic following a fracture? I never broke anything before or was really ill before. I have started going back to work and driving to work which feels fine but it is walking that scares me and sometimes I find I am so anxious I feel I am losing my balance. I would love to know if anyone else has had this and how long it might last.
