Yesterday I went back to the ER because I had bad anxiety that got worse by the minute. They gave me xanax and it helped tons. I kept telling the doctor I felt like I was going to die so they sent me for further test (blood work) and everything came back good. I went the day before and got an EKG and it came back normal, went the day before that and got blood work to sew if I had blood clots and it came back normal.
Today for most of the day, I felt great. Now I just feel like I'm going to die. I feel dizzy, like I'm forgetting how to spell things, when I cough my head hurts, and I feel like I can't breathe and I'm scared it's a stroke.
I don't want to go back to the ER because I was assured I was healthy and it's all anxiety and because I've went several times already but I'm scared it's a stroke that I'm having.
I'm 21, healthy for the most part, a bit overweight. Have been diagnosed with health anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, and moderate depression. I am going to therapy and will start CBT this Friday coming up.
I occasionally feel like I died and this is my after life, in other words, like nothing is real and it's all a dream. It only happens when I'm having bad anxiety, like right now.
But what if what I'm feeling is a stroke? I'm not hyperventilating for me to feel dizzy, it just happened suddenly. I'm so scared, what do I do????
