Hey everyone.i will try and keep it quick as it will take forever to cover my last 12 months in detail so I will just add my feelings/symptoms.
Head pressure/lightheaded (not dizzy though)
Dull ache in my left arm, left side of my chest under the armpit and lower left stomach.
Weird breathing like I'm fully aware of every breath
Eyes feel weird, kind of different to what they used to be. Eyes test showed nothing at all wrong with my eyes.
Tired all the time with it weak legs
Lack of enthusiasm to do things I used to love doing
Stomach ALWAYS feels tense (could that be what's causing the breathing issue)
Palpatations from time to time which scare me as I then get breathless.
Sometimes feel I'm shaking inside.
Very tired after eating.
Anyway - all this started after my one and only panic attack April 5th 2016 (my birthday) I don't feel anxious about doing anything, I still work, although I find it more difficult now as it's a mentally demanding job. I've had a chest x ray, thyroid check and ecg/heart beat check and all are fine. I noticed that all my symptoms would go when I would go out socialising in the early stages but now they don't, they are constantly there (not all of them - mainly the arm/chest/stomach pain and lightheadedness remain)
Doctor says it's anxiety but if I'm not anxious about doing anything then how can it be.? Can aniexty effect you subconsciously.? If it is anxiety will it just go away eventually if I continue to do everything I would normally do.?
I can get by with the pain, but the lightheadedness and weird eyes are horrendous. Tiredness is most likely caused by not doing as much excercise as I used to maybe.
Thanks for listening
