I'm hoping to God that someone here can give me some advice on this.

For the past several years I have suffered from recurring bouts of extreme dizziness, tiredness, weakness in my body, and intense anxiety. Sometimes the anxiety is so intense that I gag and throw up. I feel out of it most of the time, like I'm existing in a dream. I have also become suicidal because there doesn't seem to be an answer for this.

I've left jobs and lost opportunities because I was unable to function due to this problem. I've been to doctors and had many tests done including: echocardiogram, Upper G.I., A brain CT scan that was done many years ago, you name it. They all come back fine. What I've been wondering is what physical problems can cause anxiety and depression symptoms. I feel like I know my body quite well, and something isn't right. Currently I see a psychiatrist because they've labelled this as a depression/anxiety disorder. Even though it's always the symptoms that come first, and then I get anxious and depressed about it.

Anyways, I'm sorry if this post is a little long-winded. I'm just hoping someone here has had a similar experience or knows of possibilities for what might be going on.

Thanks for all your help.
