Hello all! I'm new just happened to be searching online about anxiety n stumbled upon this site, I recently started experiencing anxiety about 2 or 3 months it all started at night when my heart just started racing out of my chest I thought I was having a heart attack or something, went to the dr that same morning where they had me wear a heart monitor for 24hrs just to make sure nothing was wrong with my heart n did blood work, everything came back ok so she concluded it was anxiety, nothing caused it nothing out of the ordinary or nothing super stressful, at least not any more than the normal stuff like bills and what not. Recently I started feeling dizzy which is horrible! My biggest fear is that I'll really pass out while I'm with my daughter which is 4 because it happens whenever and where ever, my dr prescribed Zoloft which I told 1/2 a pill and it was horrible! I saw my pupils super dilated and I literally lost it and freaked out! I've never been a sick person I may only get sick once a year and I'm 28 and this is the most I have ever been to the dr in my life! It's horrible! Every time I experience some sort of anxiety I'm convinced there must be something medically wrong with me! I've been reading recently n that seems to help a bit to relax me but I obviously can't read all day everyday as I'm a mom and work 2nd shift, I try and tell myself it's all in my head and try n breath and relax and focus on other things but it's at times easier said than done, it really sucks that I can't enjoy even going out with my husband because of fear of the anxiety happening! I seen a therapist that thinks I'm just having anxiety about anxiety, the anticipation basically, which could be true and knowing me it's likely, I like knowing what's wrong and not wondering, I have a dr appointment tomorrow to discuss my options with my pcp, I don't really know what to do or think but i am certain that I do NOT want to be on medication, that just adds more to the anxiety for me because it's like saying there really is something wrong! I just don't know, I jut want to wake up and feel "normal" again without fear of anxiety and when it will happen again😞
