Is it just me?

Feeling like I was gonna pass out all day but of course I didn't just wondering if anyone else's anxiety is like that

Exactly like that. Today has been pretty bad. I'm guessing a change in hormones has caused the up in anxiety today. Best wishes!

Yup I feel like that a lot. Along with weak and nauseous. It's no fun :(

Yes mine was like that too, lots of waves of dizziness. I found tapping really useful. Use the fingers on one hand to tap the side of the other hand , just below your pinky finger. You can use any rhythm you want.

Have been feeling like that since Monday. Felt like passing out in a shop but didn't. Awful feeling. It will pass, jus let it be

Hi, yes I do it comes from no where and for no reason I just suddenly start feeling shaky and light headed it's really affecting my confidence and I get scared to go places alone in case it starts up, don't know what to do :(

Me too it has put me off going places really. Scared of the feeling but am trying to look into mindfulness, think that is the way forward. Local places here give free help, it is something you could find out about. This has changed my life but am not giving up, got to try beat its ass n get it away from my head.

Hi, I have seen a little on mindfulness but not had time to research it. Will look in to it, had a bad morning today but this afternoon been feeling more normal :)

yep, I felt like that on Monday. a bit like the floor was moving under me! but I didn't fall over or pass out and it passed. In the past the more I worried about it, the worse it gets as I get trapped in a cycle of panic ("OMG, will this get worse, I'm so worried about it, do I have a brain tumour, no I don't it's just anxiety, but what if it isn't," etc etc - those stupid conversations you have in your head), so now I just accept I'm having a bad day, accept that it will pass. And it does. The more you focus on it the more power you give it. So I distract myself and accept it. By Tuesday I was fine (on this occasion).

Obviously if you have any health concerns (inner ear infection etc.) pop to your doctor to check it, but other than that just ride it out. Good luck.

No i can't say I have felt that way,

What thoughts go through your mind when this comes to a head, can it happen anywhere?

Reply

No i have not felt like I would pass out before, but did not want to go into some places though due to anxiety, what environment are you in when this happens?

Is it random or have a pattern?

Yes I feel like that when I have a panic attack. My heart races, my face gets flushed and I get a ton of pins and needles through my back. And my breathing is harder to control but generally after a few minutes it goes away and I'm perfectly fine.

I think the pin and needles sensation is just adrenaline. And I know I won't faint because of the countless attacks I've had I've never fainted so I know I won't. It is annoying though.
