I feel weak, fuzzy headed, spaced out and not with it, this can't be just anxiety?!

Hi, I'm 18 years old and yesterday I was diagnosed with anxiety.

It's strange, I didn't think I was anxious at all but reading the comments it seems I do have health anxiety.

A few months back I started to feel fuzzy headrd and like dizzy, weak with like pressure it made me feel spaced out and it's so hard to concentrate, it's getting worse and the worse it gets the more I worry about it, the doctor has done blood tests and they're all coming back clear, I had my last set today but the doctor doesn't suspect anything but anxiety.

I'm so worried and confused, I really didn't think anxiety could make someone feel this way and is there anyway at all to get rid of it? I'm so tired of it and I start a nee job this week and so worried it'll get in the way, I can't feel this way anymore. It's driving me crazy and makes me feel genuinely ill.

I have tried everything and the best things that have worked for me is swimming, going for a walk a nice hot bath with music and chilling with my kids.i am on meds aswell I take propanolol and citalopram but that would be something you need to but talk sbout with your doctor I also got a good book last week cslled 50 things you can do today to manage your anxiety its by wendy green.

  • Hi

    Sorry to hear you are feeling this way, the symptoms you describe do sound like anxiety. Has your gp offered you any support? I feel this way when I am stressed, doo you know what has triggered your anxiety?

  • Hey hun,

    Definitely anxiety! I am 22 and was diagnosed at 19, i constantly worried it was not anxiety but 3 years later and I still get the same symptoms. I was bad, wouldn't leave my bed let alone the house! It's a horrible illness, I still suffer everyday. There is not a day that I don't feel anxious, however, I do have better days for example I now have a job and I've only had 1 day off due to my anxiety. It does get better and you do learn to deal with it. Some days I want to cry because I don't want to deal with it anymore, I want to go out and have fun, meet a nice man and start a family. But it will happen all in good time. Keep fighting and know that anxiety wrecks havoc on your body, it causes all sorts of symptoms. Try councilors, they really do help you to see the bright side and work through it. Good luck hun x

  • I can relate hun. All my anxiety symptoms are in my head. Some people have the chest pains and tingling ect. But I get everything you described Some days I feel like am walking around drunk my vision seems shakey and just cnt stop that tingling pressure feeling in my head. You will have bad days but you will get to a point where you have more good than bad . This site is amazing coz it's really reassuring to hear others with anxiety feel the same xxx

  • this is what i have been getting practically constantly this past week and its really scaring me!

  • Loopsyloo, how do you deal with it? I get it too! So sick of it

  • I have had anxiety for years but i have been really good for the last few months.

    However, lately i stopped watching movies because i felt its not worth my time and then it all started coming back i'm anxious and nervous. i fell spaced out and glazzy. i thought im going crazy. but thanks to this site i know what it is. i don't have movies to take my mind off stuff. its like im going thru a mind detox. i will try to keep going strong and keep up ith you people to give me support.

    it does get better with time and pure strength of will.

  • My Son is 25 he has had this for 2 years now, he has fallen over because of it he feels really ill, you need to force your doctor to take it more seriously and give you the relevant checks blood checks urine checks, blood pressure checks, dont let it rest until you are satisfied and dont be pushed off with pills like my Son has when the underlying cause is being neglected.  My Son is doing a 24 hour urine test now and 24 bp monitor, hig liver function was up but is going down a bit, they queried his kidneys but I am hoping it will be nothing, one word of warning to you, lay off of Coke Cola, I have my suspicions it may be responsible for my Sons problems he has drank vast amounts for several years, it cant do you any good.  Take care and ask your doctor to find the underlying cause and not just fob you off with packets of pills which in the long run will do more harm, Good luck

  • Hey I'm going through the same thing and I feel like I should press on my doctors even though they did the usually blood test and all of those things. Was there anything wrong with your son or is he okay???

  • Grounding techniques can help bring someone out of a dissociative state. Examples include: drinking something which is ice cold, write a list of things in your surroundings or be outside and focus on the wind/rain and its connection to your body x

  • Does stuff like this really work?? I need severe help because I'm going through his so called derealization part of anxiety now. Although before it was worse I had palpitations and all of those thing!

  • As with all other alternative therapies, it is mainly down to the individual. If I am really struggling, it takes the edge off for me x

  • How are you feeling did you figure out how to over come this, I really need help with this because I honestly just want my life back!!!!

  • Hi AnthonyHiroshi,

    I hear yeah man, past few months all of these symptoms have been hitting me like a train. As i read further down this page i realized a lot of these people are on the same boat as me, and in all honesty i didn't really know what was wrong till... literally right now. Keep to a daily schedule, dont skip out on work, read a book, go out side (the outdoors and nature have such rewarding benefits), go to the gym, and personally i think keeping your self busy and being aware helps a bit. I know i'm new to this but before now these things helped calm my mind, even being around people i know and are familiar with helps/helped.

    Thanks for the information, to everyone on this page :)
