I'm a 24yr old female and up until a few months ago was a very active, social and outgoing person. I was at work one day when all of a sudden I had this weird feeling, it felt like a wave starting from the top of my head and it rushed down into my chest, I felt a palpitation and then it felt as though all the air was gone. My heart started racing and I collapsed in the middle of my work place. Since then I have been diagnosed with a minor tachycardic heart condition (my cardiologist assures me my condition is not causing the other symptoms I'm experiencing) and anxiety/panic disorder. Since this initial attack over 2 months ago, I feel CONSTANTLY dizzy, lightheaded, faint, have chest pains, headaches and have not been back to work (over 64 days now) I am always weak, feel short of breath and always feel like I am about to stop breathing and die. I can barely walk without feeling like I am about to collapse. I have been through many recent stressful situations before all this started. I basically lie on the couch or in bed all day because I can barely move and have so much trouble breathing. I have been checked from head to toe with some very expensive and reliable tests and nothing has been found, all tests come back negative (despite the fact that in my head I still feel as though I have something wrong with me). I'm just wondering if anyone has felt this incapacitated and debilitated from their anxiety/panic disorder? because I have basically been bed ridden since the initial attack and I have no idea how to move forward and get past this! It is effecting my entire life! Even my sleep is disturbed now, my partner just holds be while I cry myself to sleep out of frustration. Please someone help!!!
