Yes it can make you feel as you do I have had it for years and people don't understand they say it's all in your mind, well it ain't, most anxiety today is caused by the stresses of modern life, the 24 / 7 lifestyle, constantly on our computers and cell phones people seem as though they cant live without them, we are bombarded with adverts from peer pressure telling us we must purchase this and that if we don't we won't fit in with society. well I say ignore all this pressure' live as you want not as they want, I may be on my PC now but I won't be on it all day, take one day at a time, do your own thing and think, The world would not be better off without me but I would be better off without the world.

I know this might sound odd but have you had your vitamin levels checked? I felt similar and it turns out my vitamin D was way too low. Do a search for vitamin D deficient forum and see what their symptoms are. It's just a blood test anyway so you should check it out.


You poor darling. Dizzy feeling and feeling like you may faint are classic anxiety symptoms, BUT you won't faint, it is your brain playing nasty tricks on you, the good news is you can do something about it and out smart your own mind. All the things you say have happened to me and in many way a millions times worse but I ma coming out the other side and so can you.

Firstly if your Doc and family are bored I would be very surprised, it is more likely they are frustrated at how to help you, so you need to tell them. It may be dull but writing it down helped me hugely. Next I would say try not to ignore the symptoms as though 'turning away' will help, it doesn't. Accept the feelings by acknowledging and accepting it is here and WILL PASS within a moment or so. It is not easy but can be done with practice. You will soon know that anxiety is creeping up and you will let it wash over you and pass through you and go away. Have you tried mindfulness meditation, it works for lots of people and could be worth a try.

I wish you luck and can totally promise you THIS WILL PASS and you will be well again, and the best bit is the person who can most help you is you.
