Sick of this

Posted , 5 users are following.

Just like plenty of people on here I am exhausted of fighting anxiety everyday!!

I've been okay today, anyway I just stood up and went all dizzy and lightheaded I thought I was going to faint now I'm scared to get up and I have pressure on top of my head plus I've been having blood coming from my nose on tissue I do think I have sinuses problems and I am phoning Dr tomorrow to get an ent exam done but I'm so worried incase it's something else, and I have pains now and then in my head which is scaring me I just want to go to bed but my little girl is having none of it she's wide awake! Going dizzy/lightheaded really scares me does anyone else get it?

    I have gotten this way before. I found out I had allergies... definitley thought it was something more serious. It could be environmental, but you should talk to your doctor. If nothing else, you will feel better having the discussion. Good luck! Keep us updated!

    hi shaunie - i get dizzy/lightheaded sometimes, too. of course, if you stand up quickly after you were laying down, that will happen. hang in there! it sounds like a pretty normal anxiety symptom to me. but i hear you: having anxiety is a true challenge. every littke thing turns into something bigger!

    I get dizzy spells all the time, I do get really worried when it happens, avoid standing up after it, it's horrible, just make sure you drink plenty of water, and I just usually keep telling myself it's because of anxiety and I can't pass out due to that

      Yeah I know the feeling I passed out and broke my leg (wasn't anxiety related was before it) and it's the reason that stopped me leaving the house for months, because I feared it would happen to me, am still petrified when I feel like it, always end up causing myself to have a serious panic attack, but I drink plenty of water, and any time I have a panic about it, I just try to tell myself, stop being silly, it won't happen, try to convice myself, it's defiantly horrible, maybe you should speak to your doctor about getting test done, probably is just anxiety related because it's possible, that's just what it is with me now, but sometimes can be low blood pressure

      Probably just due to anxiety, and the more you think about it the more it gets worse, my doctor told me, I should go from lying down to sitting for a few minutes before standing up, because obviously that can cause dizziness, it's definitely hard living with anxiety everyday, and it's even Harder trying to get over it, but am sure you'll get through it, all you can do is mention it at your check up, explain how your feeling, ask them if there is anything you can do to help it

      I also got told by my Dr to do that and take my time getting up, I'll mention it tomorrow to my midwife see what she says and I'm also phoning Dr for my ent exam see if my sinuses are playing up! The joys of living with anxiety it's a horrible thing it really is I'm hoping because it kicked of with my pregnancy when he's born itll go!

    I'm sure it's just sinuses. Please don't worry you are fine. Getting dizzy scares me too. Right now the my whole body feels scares me ( the anxiety symptoms)
