It all started about two months ago... I was at work and I got verryyy dizzy and shaky and had to leave early. It was soooo intense I thought I was going to lose it. After that I haven't felt normal at all. For a while my heart was beating fairly fast and I was very weak (stayed in bed for almost a week straight). I've been having pressure on the top of my head and some nasal cavity swelling as well. Almost to the point where I can't breathe out of my nose. My body also has this moments where it feels like I've been holding my breath for too long and my body goes into hyperdrive. I also have the feeling like something's in my throat. I will add as I think of more things... I've had tons of xrays, cat scan, wore a heart monitor for 2 weeks, lots of blood work done, and still no answers. The worst thing is that it feels like it all started on that one day... felt fine the day before, felt terrible since. Also I had been taking Amnesteem for three months prior to this.

I am really scared at this point... and frustrated because my doctor keeps trying to tell me that it's anxiety, but I really don't think that's it.

Also I am 18 and have been staying around 135 lbs.

...sorry this is so poorly written!

  • Sounds like anxiety. The symptoms are very real, don't underestimate this diagnosis. Reading this might help:http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/blog.php?b=6218
