Does anyone here have anxiety attacks or panic where suddenly you have a heavy rush to the head and your head feels heavy and then you feel all warm in the face and feel you're about to pass our? Which then of course triggers more panic.
Lately I've had high anxiety daily and random panic attacks like I describe above. They come on if I talk about anything medical, particularly blood if I see it or discuss it, or they can happen out of the blue for no reason. It's so unlike me and I panic each time that I am going to faint. I was even laughing hard last week and that caused the same spasm of heavy head rush and heat to my face and I panicked I'd faint. I've such a phobia of fainting since this all began because I can't accept it's anxiety. I keep panicking do I have a blood phobia and will I pass out or is it something else going on. Hubby says it's anxiety as I've had it in the past and I'm just very sensitised at the moment so my mind keeps causing new fears and worries. I've never had such physical anxiety but now spend my days feeling constant general anxiety and some days these weird heavy warm rushes to my head and I panic I'm about to pass out. It's so scary. I literally cry every time they happen. They pass within a minute or so but my heart races and I shake like mad for a while after.
Can anyone relate to the faint head rushes?
