Looking to see if anyone has had a similar experience as me and can offer some advice
Around 5 months ago I had a bad experience on a boys holiday in Greece. On the last day after a week of heavy drinking I was feeling very hungover in the hotel lobby when all of a sudden I started feeling as if I was about to pass out, my whole body went into extreme panic and I was shaking and my whole body felt tingly, I thought I was about to die! I was taken by ambulance and treated for dehydration. Ever since this happened I just don't feel right anymore, I constantly have strange head symptoms.
There are a lot of symptoms which I experience but the worst ones are the horrible head type dizziness and pressures, it never seems to go away and I get lightheaded and feel like I'm about to collapse, it is extremely frightening, I feel like there is something seriously wrong with me.
I have been to the doctors so many times and keep getting told it is just anxiety after what happened on holiday, I have had blood work done, eye test done, I have been hooked up to a heart machine and all of these have came back normal. I have been referred for CBT and also to neurology to rule anything else out and put my mind at rest, the doctors keep reassuring me that this is just anxiety but I am starting to find that hard to believe, it is starting to make me feel really sad.
the more time that is going by the more scared I am starting to feel, I sometimes feel like I'm getting a bit worse.
Has anyone ever had a similar experience? I'm only 18 years old and I just want to feel like my normal self again
