  • The hardest thing to do I realize they are professionals if there was something wrong with you they will do what they have to to treat you :/ I had something like this happen to me but the hardest thing is to realize its all in our minds. I still struggle but getting better with time(: best of luck hun have a nice night try to relax and rmber theyll be good days too !

  • P.s I have a friend that had that same thing happen when he had a tooth problem he couldnt bare and he had anxiety too .

  • Hi Raeybaby I really feel for you. Once in that spiral it can be hard to pull yourself back. Please please try really hard,coming from someone who has just turned 48 and lived with anxiety issues from the age of 9, you have had 2 MRIs and other tests all come back clear this in itself is amazing. You have to find something, no matter how small, that helps you to relax. Have faith in your doctor who has listened to you. Some are not as fortunate to not only be listened to but to even have the tests being done. Take care and good luck.

  • Hi,

    Sorry to hear you are having such a hard time. Just like you I'm still in the process to understand this which started 2 1/2 months ago. In my case I feel light headed 24/7 and short of breath specially when I eat or walk. Doctors think is anxiety so just 2 days ago I started to take Alprazolam XR 0.5 twice daily (xanax)- I was taking alprazolam 0.5 once daily but the quick release one which only helps for 4-6 hours. the XR last 12 hours. My light headed is better (70-80%) but I'm not sure if it was the Alprazolam or just SUDAFED children ( Yes, I also have recurring sinus) that helped me. Yes, I take the children version because I also have HBP which is under control. ;-) How much xanax are you taking and why are you taking it if is not helping you? btw, my lack of air also gets better (60-70%) with Alprazolam but in this case the short version did a better job than the XR .In my opinion taking the XR last longer but is like taking 0.25 instead of 0.5 because it's distributed in 12 hours and not 6. It is also less addictive because you don't feel the quick boost. I will see my Psychiatrist on Jun 2 and my PCD tomorrow so lets see if they recommend a change. One more comment which I will like feedbacks from our friends here- Yesterday I got in my pool and felt pressure on my chest and lack of air. Not sure is my anxiety going up when I get in the pool (very unlikely) or is a real condition because it did get better once I was out again..

  • I feel EXACTLY like you. It is HORRIFIC.... supposedlly its anxiety... its hard to believe isnt it? we will get through this
