Hi everyone, looking for some advice if you’d take the time to read my post. I am 22 years old and have suffered from some depression in the past. I had counselling which helped me to move on from this.
In January this year I was sat on my couch and randomly started to feel a burning sensation in my head, I immediately freaked out and thought I was having a stroke or something sinister. I went to the out of hours and they couldn’t see anything physically wrong with me, bloods all clear! They told me I probably have a virus and I had suffered from a panic attack from feeling unwell.
Since January I have had symptoms on and off including; head pressure, lightheaded, feeling sick, shakes, the runs, feeling numb and spaced out, pressure in my eyes, muscle aches, tired constantly, struggle to fall asleep and sometimes jerk out of my sleep. I have been to the doctors so many times had my bloods done 4-5 times and they keep telling me it is anxiety but I never feel anxious it’s more physical symptoms? I don’t really have anything to be anxious about I don’t have a stressful job or life. I was given propanonal and took these for 5 months, I still felt light headed and spaced out on these and couldn’t sleep so came off them. I’m constantly googling trying to find answers to what I’m going through and I’ve now began to feel like I’m getting health anxiety as I’m googling every symptom. It’s now been going on for so long it’s ruining my social life and it’s broke up my relationship!
Can anyone suggest anything I can do? If this does sound like anxiety? My symptoms are pretty much 24/7 and I’m now not really sleeping and I’ve lost nearly a stone in under a month and am struggling to get any medical advice! Thank you in advance.
