Hi, I'm new here and its my first post on any kind of forum. I guess I'm looking for someone, anyone to say 'I feel the same and you are not alone'. I've been struggling with this off balanced, disorientated, feeling and fear of passing out among other symptoms for over a year now where its been pretty much a daily struggle. From memory it really started to take a turn when I went skiing for a week, I felt ok on the slope, apart from my nerves if I went too fast or too high, but then as the evening went on I would start feeling this swaying like I was still going down the mountain which intensified when I laid down and tried to fall asleep, I would even dream I was still skiing. I also started to get more sensitive to car journeys and going out on boats where it would sometimes take me a couple of days to feel balanced again. Then one day it came and never really left. Some days are better than others and I find working on computers and being in the office the worst although in a weird way sometimes safer and less lonely as there are people around me if I did pass out. I also feel more sensitive to loud noises and busy places, I used to love flying but now I fear it in case I have an attack and I can't get away or get emergency help. I feel quite uncomfortable around some friends now when I used to enjoy their company, through no fault of their own but I feel like I'm not myself anymore, just trying to keep my head above water, focus and not panic while I sit there. I used to be so active and always the one arranging and planning the next social activity or trip, now I only feel safe when I'm at home laying down or heading home and I avoid making plans. I get a tight chest and throat, headaches, some trouble sleeping, waking with intense worry, needing the toilet constantly, upset stomach, shaking, jelly legs, emotional and sensitive, trouble focusing and feeling exhausted. I've convinced myself there is something seriously wrong and that I'm dying but I've been to see several doctors and specialists, test after test but no one can find anything medically wrong with me, sometimes I wish (its terrible I know) for a diagnoses of some sort just so I know its not all in my head or I'm going crazy. Just wish I could go back to how I used to be. Sorry for the long post but I'm feeling quite frustrated, scared and hopeless.
