So, this is my firat time on this site and I guess I just want to see if anyone had felt this way or if something is seriously wrong with me.. I've had anxiety for over 5 years, I've had long periods of time where it doesn't bother me at all and then lomg periods of times where I'm constantly in attack mode. I was getting dizzy since valentines day, I was eating dinner I prepared with my gf and it just hit me. Dizziness and a horrible panic attack. I went to the ER and they told me it was just anxiety and an ear infection and gave me antibiotics. I took maybe 3 of the antibiotics and stopped because it started freaking me out. (Bactrim) I went another ER and they told me my ear looked fine and diagnosed me with vertigo, gave me no medication. It cms and went some bad days and.
other really bad days. So I got super irritated and went back to the first ER they told me I was dehydrated and gave me two bags of fluids, dizziness was still there. Doctor told me it was just my anxiet. I went home and slept decent that night. Yet again it came back. My girlfriend and I decided to move back west and drove 2000 miles back towards my mom's. I was still suffering with dizziness and anxiety attacks. I went to the ER here when I got back and yet again they told me just anxiety. Blood, urine, and my cat scan came back good. Yet AGAIN still dizzy. I got fed up with it and went to an urgent care. The doctor there did the SAME exact tests the ER did and told me I have Labrynithitis. He put me on zpack. I just finished. the zpack the day before last and I am still feeling dizzy with some vertigo attacks. Now I'm really starting to freak out. Arm will go numb, I have wHat I heard people call brain zaps. I feel like my memory has gone to craps. I'll know what I've done during the day but it feels like it was either forever ago or that it wasmy real. I feel like everything is a dream, like I'm looking out of someone else's eyes or watching a weird movie. Some nights when I don't take my ativan I have major trouble sleeping. My mind doesn't seem to want to shut off. Racing thoughts, dizziness, irritation, static vision when my eyes are closed, headaches, constant ringing ear, sometimes tolerable other times it makes my anxiety worse. I really don't know what to do at the point. I start work monday and it feels like this is just getting worse. Am I going crazy?
