I have always suffered from anxiety, I can remember when I was a child and feeling the burning anxious turmoil in the pit of my stomach. When I was eleven years old I came home from shopping with my parents at night and felt the anxiety. I then started to notice that I felt as though I was moving to the right, similar to the feeling you get when you get off a merry go round, that strange feeling it gives you after you depart from the ride. I had a panic attack as I was only eleven and susceptible to panic attacks. I went to bed that night hoping that it would go away in the morning, but this wasn't to be, I woke up next morning feeling still the strange sensation. I also noticed that I couldn't keep my eyes on a small object, my eyes would drift away or jerk. Over the years it has evolved, it has changed directions, changed forms and became more turbulent. Recently I reached my breaking point and rushed to my doctor, he diagnosed me with anxiety and referred me to a psychiatrist. My psychiatrist diagnosed me with health anxiety and pure obsessional compulsive disorder. But he still could not explain the moving feeling to me, nor the eye movements. He thinks that the feeling may be due to a type of epilepsy, he did not tell me which type. I went to my regular doctor a few months after this because the Prozac I was prescribed was making these feelings to be more intense. I told my doctor what my psychiatrist told me and he said that I do not have epilepsy and that it is anxiety that is causing all of these strange symptoms. Please help, it's like they don't know what is wrong with me, I am crying for help, I am scared to death.
