    Feeling dizzy and stuff is probably caused by your fear of dying - you think about all the 'symptoms' and so they happen

    By the way I suffer from similar thing but I think I've realised nothing serious might really happen - panicking is started by your brain, nothing else.

    I think you should go to a specialist and talk to someone, do not worry so much, and try to do some things that relax you!

    You sound just like me my goodness the days are long and never ending with this anxiety always making you think your dying going to pass out or just loose total control.Its tough to explain to others when it's not visable I have 5 kids who I stay home with and trying to hide it from them makes it worse.I wish there was a simple remedy for this and that we could snap our fingers and come out of it.What have you done in regards to medication???Personally I don't think they are the best route to take but that's my opinion.My mum suggested going to a specialist for this and just talking which I think would help sooo much just to let it all out and have someone on our wavelength bring us back down to earth and make us realize we are not dying or loosing the plot.I feel for you I really do but I know one day soon you will come out of this and it will be a distant not so fun memory we can get through this.xxxx

    I'm sorry you are going through this, it's such a horrible thing.. My anxiety usually would focus around chest area and now for over a month its sore neck, feel lightheaded, sometimes like I'm not even really here, just watching everyone around me go on with life. I do try to take deep breaths and try to think positive, but some how I end up still being anxious or having a panic attack. Don't sleep much and I'm sure that is playing a part in it. Some days I feel like I'm gonna go crazy, its such a weird feeling. I got back on paxil and going back to Dr and gonna have the dose upped a little and see if that helps. The fear of dying or something always wrong is taking over my life and i don't want it to

    I wish I could deal with stress and stuff that has happened differently. I know this probably doesn't help much, just know you aren't alone in feeling these symptoms and we just gotta keep trying to find a way to get through this.

      Oh bless you it's hard isn't it one day it's one thing the next another and the overwhelming feeling of your going to pass out or worse die is the worst feeling in the world.I get it everyday more times than I would like I can't focus on nothing else and its affected my life and raising of my girls I bloody hate it drives you crazy.The weird feeling too of not being here is not nice at all I feel like I'm just floating through life and well driving forget it I don't know how I get from a to b.I hope you get on well with your gp and find a positive solution to get you through this.We will fight this and need to remind ourselfs that it's not going to harm us(easier said than done right)Keep your chin up and know there are so many of us dealing with it and just keep supporting one another hope you have a great weekend anxiety free.xxx

    Hey Jamie I can sympathize with what you're going through I go through the same thing although I'm sure mine is physical not mental I got like this before but worse and I was diagnosed with tachycardia now my heart just seems to be going up and down up and down up and down sometimes it bothers me sometimes it don't I keep myself busy so I don't even feel it but anxiety still comes on the last two days I've been pretty good but tonight it is just awful I feel nauseous I get this week feeling in my chest my heart is just pounding out my chest and I'm trying to sit here and relax and watch TV some symptoms with tachycardia are about the same with anxiety but I know there's some anxiety there although I'm not worried about it because I've been through it before with my heart and I called the heart doctor they can't get me in until December 14th just hang on she will get better once you get to the root of the problem I take medication to lower my heart rate but not sure it's working as good as it did I get tightness in my throat my head and a lot of times the symptoms or bother me unless I got that tickle feeling like it's trying to get out of control but just know you're not alone keep the hope that you will get better
