Hi, I am 18 years old and have been suffering from panic attacks and anxiety since NYE (2014) due to my cousin passing away Christmas Morning. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had the feeling as if your soul is leaving your body (best way I can describe it), it feels like I'm dying when this happens and it really frightens me which makes me panic more. I have experienced this 3 times, and it happens out of the blue.
I have been to the hospital and doctors for blood tests and had two ECG's and everything came back fine! It's just the feeling of dying that really scares me and I keep having flashbacks of when it's happened to me, and I am wanting to know if anyone else has had this? My anxiety and panic attacks have become a lot worse and I'm starting to get to the point where I can't cope with it any longer.
My GP has prescribed me 80mg Propranolol to be taken once a day, 10mg Citalopram to be taken once a day, and 2mg Diazepam two to be taken twice a day. Nothing seems to be working and my anxiety is getting worse as the days go on. I have been back to my GP and they basically fob me off and say I'm fine, but I really don't feel it.
For the past week I have been feeling so weak, my arms feel numb and my legs are like jelly. I can barely stand for any longer than 5 minutes, it feels like I am going to collapse.
Has anyone else had this before or suffer from it? If so, is there anything that could help me? It is really starting to get to me now.
