I am blacking out at least once a day :-( not allowed 2 drive at moment been doing this since July 2015 :-(

Any1 else blacking out only lasts about 30 seconds/ 1 minute. I totally had enough. Scared of bein on my own. Doctors are saying it's normal with stress N worry.

    I have not blacked out but I feel for you. I am able to control my anxiety better now even though I get bad health anxiety due to my symptoms & doctors saying they can't find anything but it makes me worry if they are missing something. Just try your best to tell yourself you need to remain positive that ALL this will go away, try to focus on as many things that make you happy...or read / watch funny things I do this just to keep some sanity! What meds are you on & for how long have you been on them? I am weaning myself of Gabapentin & it is rough with the withdrawal ...I HATE THAT DRUG!! Keep seeing your doc & change docs if you feel the need to , a second opinion could help smile

      Something else I want to add, my family member went through a terrible year with anxiety & panic attacks. She was always worried & scared to be alone. She was unable to swallow foods because her throat always felt like it was closing up,she lost alot of weight.She also had gone to the ER a couple times freaking out not knowing she was having a panic attack, even called the ambulance once thinking she was having a heart attack. They told her she was suffering from panic attacks but it was difficult for her to believe it. I believe it can cause your body all kinds of alarming experiences. As of today she is completely back to normal & does not experience any of those frightening things she was experiencing for a year. I forgot what medication she was but it took her awhile to come off it but she is even happier now then ever before so, THERE IS HOPE!!

      I started having bad anxiety last year after experiencing sudden migraine headaches & my sibling being diagnosed with cancer. So maybe its related to that but it scares me sh*tlesssss at times & sometimes I feel like paranoid like an addict thinking the worst out of little situations... like I have a hang nail & think its related to some serious illness never even heard of😂 Not really funny I just try to make myself laugh at it to help cope. It freaking sucks!!!! But my aunt who experienced the bad panic attacks has been my light at the end if the tunnel because I KNOW THERE IS HOPE!

      It is great that you have a family member that you can talk to about your feelings, that is so helpful.  I really think that you are realizing your own problem, which is good.  I would not doubt that you are dealing with stress and anxiety due to your sibling being ill.  It is not uncommon for us to worry for our family, this is normal.  It sounds like you aunt is very knowledgable, keep in contact with her.  It helps when we don't feel alone.

    Blacking out as in fainting? Vaso vagel Not all that uncommon but usually theres an underlying issue that it leads to fainting. Excellent hyperventilator. Or low blood pressure issues. I think you mean menrally though. The mind does many a strange thing to escape reality when it feels overwhelmed. Are you all weaned off now? Maybe a good time to see an alternative doctor and see how they would handle panic disorders. There is more then one avenue to fight this. meds only work on half the people, the other half needs a different avenue to handle and manage it.
