i am a 25 yr old female. about 4 months ago i started having these symptoms of wanting to pass out, dizziness, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat, and a sense of losing reality. they occur pretty often, maybe one a day. i have been very stressed out and the only thing that seems to help is when i am having these symptoms i have to get up and walk around. they usually only happen at night too. i have had all sorts of tests done and as far as physical goes, i am fine. i do smoke and i have an iud.(birth control). if anyone can please help to make me understand what is going on with me, i would gladly appreciate it.
