I've been like this seven year I have five boys since my second boy was born I've never felt right. It all happened on the bus one day I went all light headed and shaky and I was all hot and sweaty I started running for half hour it was awful. I'm scared to even go to the doctors. I'm constantly tired my eyes feel funny always of balance I panic even hanging washing out my life is ruined.every time I try to sleep I jump and feels as though I'm sinking its awful every time I wake up I'm dizzy and just want to lay back down

  • Your not alone my son is 6 months and all my symptoms that you have started one day while sitting in a chair. Life to me feels so different and I'm always shaking off balance heart beats fast can't sleep when I close my eyes it's like a rush of adrenaline freaks me out.... But I also got diagnosed with hoshimotos thyroid which they say can cause a lot of this but sometimes I feel like the Drs don't even understand... I hope you feel better I'm right there with you everyday and wish I was my normal self again.

  • Aw thank you I hope to get better asap it's effected me in every way. It's hard for me just to go to the corner because if I see some one I no I avoid them because I can't stand and talk I fidgit all the time and go all hot and panic. I have good family what do another for me etc shopping but I want to do it. I went to town last week in a taxi and felt great for a few hours I loved it. Even if someone comes to see me I can't sit still and talj I hate it. And also ye the sinking feeling I'd horrendous I always jump even sometimes when I'm sitting it feels as though I'm sinking. I can't believe other people experience the same symptoms it's hard to believe. I really appreciate your reply you take care to feel free to message me it makes me feel so much better. All I do is talj about it I hate been alone to x

  • Were, you must somehow force yourself to see your GP. Take a taxi if that's worked for you before, but PLEASE get help.

    If you're asked to have blood tests then please do. You could have thyroid dysfunction which can make you feel rotten, and can include the symptoms you're having. And, if so, it can be treated.

    My best friend was suffering like you & afraid to leave the house 'til we dragged her to get medical help. It turned out to be a thyroid issue. She now has medication which has given her her life back.

    If your problem is panic-attacks (which wouldn't surprise me) then antidepressants may well be the answer. And forget the side effects ; they're nothing compared to what you're going through right now................and what you'll continue to go through until you get the medical attention you so badly need.

    Your GP might suggest counselling. But whatever is offered you need to grab it with both hands and get to work on your recovery. Only you can do it.

    I've had to fight enormous fear to rid myself of constant anxiety disorders. I promise you, it's so, so worth the fight !!

    All best wishes, Cat x

  • I'm like every u have said I get the same and I would never take tablets because of side effects well I had a really bad attack the other week and rung the doctors up and they gave me pronpranolol 40mg I take one a day and I bin on them 7 days now and I feel as of I'm getting sum where being on them I went out for the first time but get the help never hide it will only get worse I do it and don't like at side effects x

  • One time I was that bad a couldn't get up for five days didn't dare move was shaking every time I tried to get up thats what's making me think vertigo cos of balance

  • Wow I feel just like you and this also started when I got pregnant with my last child she's 11now, I've never been the same:/ I'm 52 now. been to every dr you can think of, all comes back fine. So I guess it's anxiety, though I have nothing to be anxious about:/. My dr said it's the chemicals in the brain. I also came off my meds didn't want to be on them anymore either. Hope this all goes away one day. I want my to enjoy me life again.🙏
