Anxiety Support

I'm sooooo sick of this feeling

Light-headed non stop every single damn day...... Feel as though in going to tip over just sitting still. Feel faint 99% of the time off balance when walking ... If I'm driving I feel somewhat decent but the moment I have to stop at a stop light I feel faint and giddy it's the worst feeling anyone can go through... Blood test ekgs ents and they all say your perfectly fine. NO THE HELL I'm not you see anxiety and panic disorder on my fucking chart and just go with that....... Four years suffering everyday with this bullshit I'm so sick of it.... I know acceptance is what will heal me but I have accepted it.... I can't ignore me feeling like I'm going to black out how do you ignore that.... Please someone tell me because I don't know anymore..... If it wasn't for my son year old son and my faith in God I would just give up

I so know how you feel. I'm always lightheaded jittery Restless I feel like my body's going to collapse I feel like my arms and legs don't work uncoordinated but like you say they see anxiety and don't do any further testing other than your basic that all come back normal

I know exactly how you feel, I go though the same thing every day. I too have had all the test done and they blame it on my anxiety/panic disorder. It’s just so hard to deal with at times trying to do all the daily activities that we have to do all the while feeling like you are walking on a boat and you could pass out at any moment. I have been dealing with this for five years and I feel like giving up on a daily basis and then I think about my son and he keeps me going.

yes.that's what my ENT doctor told me.sometimes i feel pain in my neck due to wrong posture or due to wrong sleeping position.

he told me also that i will undergo therapy if the symptoms persist.but he believes ill be ok since im still young.

I also have a baby it seems like a lot of mothers end up with postpartum after the birth of their child. I didn’t start feeling anxiety or depression until after I had my baby. I always think I’m gonna die or have a heart attack but there’s nothing wrong with me... or so the doctors say... anxiety is so physically disabling. I really do think if it wasn’t for my baby girl I would be done.

Have you heard of Mal de Debarquememt syndrome? The symptoms are very close to what you describe and the characteristic that tends to lead to a diagnosis is feeling better when driving. It usually starts after a boat, car or plane trip, but can occur spontaneously too sometimes during or after a stressful period. I had this for nearly a year several years ago after a very stressful time in my life. It slowly resolved and I only have brief encounters with it occasionally which quickly resolve but your symptoms sound a lot like mine did! If you are interested, check out MDDSFoundation.org. Good luck!

Thank you I have heard of it.. but I ruled it out because I've never been on a boat or a plane .. how did you make it go away

I wasn’t on a boat or a plane either; mine was spontaneous as is a lot of people’s. Mine was definitely made worse by anxiety and depression and I worked through that with a therapist. I believe that helped immensely to relieve the symptoms and gradually they subsided. The fact that you feel better when moving in a car is a red flag for mdds - I believe there are no other disorders that have that as a feature. It was certainly true for me - I felt great when the car was moving but come to a stop sign and the horrible feeling come flooding back only to disappear when I started moving again. Anyway, good luck - I hope that you feel better soon. I know how awful it can be to feel like you do and I hope you finds some answers!

I have the same feeling 24/7 . It gets really old . I'm scared to even drive any more . I read that the less active and stagnant you are , the worse it gets . I hope you get to feeling better , I'm here to talk . Keep your head up , and pray hard . I know the doctors are irritating sometimes , like they don't even hear you . I get them all the time .
