Hi guys I dintend really know how to start, I believe I have had anxiety for many years. My problem at the moment is: 4 week ago I was in work and I felt really sick and I took a diazipam to calm down that kicked in and I was ok for a fed hours. Later that morning ( I work night shift) I began to feel really sick and light headed , honestly felt like I was going to pass out, anyway I got a Dr appointment straight away I seen the Dr and they told me I had otogenic vertigo and to rest and then signed me off for a week. The week passed and I didn't feel any better so I went back to the Dr and they told me I had viral labrynitis so again signed me off work for another week. I still felt not sick but just not right so I called NHS 24 and they said sounds like a virus, I left it a fed days and went back to the Dr who said it now sounds like post virus symptoms and to rest drink water etc signed off work for a other week. This Saturday I just wasn't buying what they have told me as I was still light headed so I called nhs24 and they sent me to the hospital to be checked over and the doctor said she could find anything wrong as to why I'm light headed and said I have tension headaches and give me antibiotocs for my cough and said see my gp on monday ( which I will later today). I really don't understand why I am still light headed and it's really getting on top of me. I honestly feel like I'm dying and I get all sorts of symptoms ie with my anxiety I always feel like I'm going to have a heart attack. Me being a mummy's boy spoke to my mum and she has said 4 doctors have told me I'm ok and it's all in my head. It's driving me mad cause now I'm thinking is this all in my head or am I dying, can anxiety really make me feel light head and just not right or do I have an underlying problem. The doctors just seem to look at my anxiety and leave it there am I being paranoid or am I ill, I'm scared out of my mind and I don't know what to do or were to turn so I seen this forum snd thought I'd sign up as everyone seems really supportive a may have experienced what I'm going through
