I am 24 years old and always been a worrier however on a flight back from Japan in October last year I started feeling really odd. I honestly thought I was about to die up in the air! I worked in quite a stressful role and as soon as I got in the car after work and switched off this tingling started In my head. It felt like ants all over my scalp. I didn't do anything about it at the time and then I went to Japan for a month in November. 2 weeks into my trip I started having panic attacks in the evening after googling my symptoms (I know I shouldn't!) Since I arrived back home I started having 24 hour dizziness and a variety of horrible symptoms. Just to name a few I get a really heavy head, dizzy zaps, I feel like I can't see (floaters), vertigo like sensations, body and face tingles, my face goes numb right under my eyes, pulsating head and the feeling of fullness in my ears. I have this awful problem with driving or travelling as when I stop moving in the car or on the train I still feel like im moving forward. I ended up seeing lots of doctors and an ENT had an MRI scan, they found a cyst but I was assured this was causing no problems. I have also had a ECG which showed a short PR interval but nothing else. I was then diagnosed with anxiety and mild depression and offered CBT which helped a lot! I wasn't leaving in the house in the fear that something would happen and spend 90% of my time thinking about my symptoms. Its not July and I am still having these symptoms! I am well and truly fed up.. The only thing the doctor thinks it could be is possibility of migraines without the headache. My symptoms seem to flair up in the evenings when I am relaxing.
I am just not sure whether this is anxiety or something else. Feeling dizzy is the worse symptom and im finding it hard to cope.
Any advice would be appreciated
