I haven't felt well in myself for a very long time. I get a lot of dizziness, not like the room is spinning more that my head fills lightheaded all the time (abit like when you have been blowing up balloons!), sometimes feels as though my head is jerked forward or like someone is squeezing and pushing down on it which makes a funny pins and needles feeling go all down through my head and chest and arms. I also get 'electric shock' feelings through my head - usually on the left side but I had a really bad one on my right side yesterday while driving which really scared me........ I also felt as though something 'popped' in the left side of my head a few weeks ago. After these feelings I feel really strange and not myself for a few hours after - prob a lot of this is because it scares me when it happens as they come suddenly out of nowhere and literally make me jump! I also feel extremely tired all the time and like I have no energy. I have also noticed that these symptoms seem to be worse the week before I am due on my period when I will also get a tight chest and feels like my chest is aching and get pains.
I just don't ever feel 'right' and sometimes feel like I am 'not really there'

I used to suffer with panic attacks so think this is probably down to anxiety but I don't feel anxious like I used to and haven't had a panic attack for years - and don't understand how anxiety can cause electric shock feelings in my head! I also seem to be over sensitive to everything - the contraceptive pill makes me feel worse - I was given tablets for migraines and they seemed to make the electric shock feelings worse! I don't know what to do - I JUST WANNA FEEL NORMAL AGAIN!!!!!
