Hi Saz12345, I guess I hadn't scrolled down far enough. Just saw your post now. Here you aren't feeling well and yet responded to comfort another. That's what this forum is all about, caring...

I can relay to what you are feeling personally. This feeling is probably the most disturbing in that it happens quite often. It's due to the unbelievably tight muscles in the neck which extends down into the shoulders and upper back. When these muscles clamp down, they make the whole head feel tight as if it were wrapped in a tight band. It is anxiety and nothing more.

It produces dizziness for several reasons. You need to relax those muscles starting with your neck, you need to hydrate, water is so essential in feeling more clear headed and you need to change your train of thought as to this being something dire.

This is what I do when this happens. I'm familiar enough with the sensation so there is no fear however, I get a big towel or blanket, throw it in the dryer until it's cozy hot so you can wrap that around your shoulders, get a big glass/bottle of water and start hydrating and last tune into YouTube. Type in Audio 5-10 min meditation/deep breathing. Really watch and listen to what is being said as you sip on water, have the hot towel/blanket around your shoulders and breathe.

I can almost guarantee that within that short time, your head will feel more relaxed, your dizziness will go away or at the least get better. Repeat if necessary. Keep that calm with you. It's all about allowing yourself to take that escape for a while and leaving the stress behind. Feel better x

Don't give up Saz12345, I've had that choker like feeling as well. Once you are able to stop the panicking, it will loosen up and relax. Feel better soon. Breathe..x
