Hi all, it's nice to finally find a forum with likeminded people!
I have been suffering from variating degrees of anxiety for about 3 years now. It started after a break-up and has continued on and off since. I go through periods where I managed to block it out (for example when I'm super busy or at an event I've been looking forward to for a while) I used to have weeks where I was anxiety free (usually when I was happy in a relationship). I then went through another horrible breakup and decided to move house and job and since then I've really struggled. Although I now have a lovely new job and flat the anxiety is worse than ever. For years I have been convinced that there was something wrong with my brain. My main symptoms are as follows - Constant dizziness / light headedness (same sort of feeling after having a glass of wine!)
- Difficulty concentrating (especially when I'm working on the computer at work)
- Getting my words muddled, confusion
- Sudden nervy tummy, sweaty palms and racing heart
- Feeling that I'm going to faint or fall over when walking - particularly in the supermarket and busy places
I had an echo recently as there is a family history of mital valve prolapse although I knew when I had it that my heart was probably fine. In the last days I have finally come to the realisation that I have full blown anxiety which I plan to tackle head on.
Joining this his forum has made me realise that so many of you have exactly the same symptoms and that I am NOT alone. This has really helped me so thank you!
I would be be really interested to hear your experiences and anything that had helped you cope - the contestant dizziness has been the hardest part to deal with for me as this is everyday and it takes it out of me!
Thank you for reading and I wish you all luck with your own battles Laura (28)
