Does anyone ever all of a sudden get this weird rushing feeling theough there body then get dizzy & light headed ? I got this about an hour ago had a good morning picked my grandson up from nursery came home went to make him lunch then all of sudden felt so light headed , had to lie on my bed for ages was feeling hot & clammy then felt cold , I've had this before but not quite as bad it really scares me when it happens & makes me feel so anxious , I suffer from anxiety anyway & felt so good for managing to do normal things this morning now I feel anxious & scared & don't want to go out 😥

    I suffer something very much the same with my Depression. One moment I will be low next I am rushing around knocking doors out of windows, I call it cooking with gas. After that period I feel tired.

    Enjoy the rush

    Keep a hold

      All of above are problems many suffer from with their anxiety, I feel for you as I have the same problems and nothing about it is very nice. 

      Throughout my life I have had to need to achieve and it is only now I can dictate my own outlook every day I push and push That is all I know

    Hi Fiona,

    yes, many, many people suffer with this. It's part of anxiety disorder, unfortunately.

    There are a lot of posts on this subject doing the rounds at the moment - do go and have a look at them - you may hopefully feel reassured that you're not alone.

    Love Tess xx

      It's horrible Tess , I get that feeling of being hot & clammy then tingely then get all light headed I just have to go lie down & wait till it passes but it sets me back for the whole day as I just feel anxious & horrible , I feel for anyone who gets this , I just think I might be ill or need the doctor which makes me panic but it does pass even though it's scary xx

    I experience this occasionally... I call it my "all or nothing state" for a period I'm wide open and taking care of everything next thing I know it's over and I'm exhausted, lightheaded and in need of rest ... Just another part of this frustrating anxiety ... Hope your feeling better soon

    Hi Fiona.  Yep, I can relate to your post !!! Isn't it frustrating when you think you are having a "good day" and out of the blue you have "an episode" ( thats what I call them anyway ).  I always feel as if I am taking 3 steps forward and 2 steps back when it happens, which does delay your recovery.  What an absolute beast this anxiety is !!!!! Luv Lily xx
