Thanks guys! For me, it all started may long weekend when I caught Strep Throat. While on the antibiotics, I started feeling dizzy and lightheaded, and just not well, but I knew I had to continue taking them until they were gone. Now, 2 months later, I am still dizzy and lightheaded, and not feeling myself. I think my anxiety started from not feeling well. Like Im getting myself all worked up from not feeling well. I finally went to the doctors last week. As I was sitting in the waiting room, I started to get shaky, sweaty, heart racing, and feeling really dizzy. I almost walked out a few times, but I knew I needed answers on what was going on. The doctor did a complete physical. Took over an hour to. Blood work and urine sample. 2 days later, everything came back normal. What the heck?! How can that be when I feel sooooo sick. I am missing work, and not going out with friends and family because of how crappy I feel. He prescribed me Betahistine to help cope with the dizziness. Yesterday I had a pretty good day, today, not so much. Nothing different triggered me feeling so crappy and dizzy, so I dont know why I wasnt well today. The doctor did say he can still see the strep throat strain in my blood, but apparently there is nothing I can do for it but let it run its course. He also thinks I have PTSD and anxiety. I am going through a separation with my husband of 18 years. Something really bad happened that made me end my marriage. I am still heartbroken over it, and trying to learn to live my life without him being with the kids and I. He didnt pass away, he cheated, 24 days before our wedding last year, and I found out not even a month after we got married. Everything is still so fresh and new. Thanks for this blog! Feels good to get it out, and share with others who can hopefully relate!
