About 10 months ago I randomly felt dizzy/lightheaded and felt like I was going to pass out at work. I alerted my boss about my symptoms and she told me that it sounded like I was going to faint so she sent me into her office to regain my thoughts. In the office I began to have my first panic attack. I felt the fight or flight mode settle in and was basically stuck there because she would not let me leave in fear that I actually might pass out. It was my first panic attack. its strange because I often hear about people being lightheaded during panic/anxiety attacks but not so much about afterwards. After my first initial attack I was lightheaded for 2 months straight. i was unable to work and basically got anxious doing anything. Luckily I had someone help me by taking me out often and helping me fight my fears and it slowly started to disappear. I was fine for about 6 months until all of a sudden another attack happened but in an unfamiliar setting which caused me to take the flight route. Again after that incident I became lightheaded again for about two months now. I feel as if my physical symptoms of being lightheaded is what's causing this anxiety/panic. I don't really know what's going on anymore. Any help?
