🙌 Hi, I'm Charl! 1st post! 😊
I've been suffering with Panic Attacks and Anxiety now for around 3 years. I am now 25, it just seems to be getting worse! My doctor listens to my symptoms and just wants to give me medication but I feel this will just make me feel more on edge and more dizzy and disorientated taking anti-depressants or diazepam etc. My symptoms are just getting worse, I have panic attacks and anxiety while I am home and it gets worse when I leave the house. When I am in a busy place I start feeling spaced out, heart palpitations, confused and hot flushes and sometimes chest pains and breathless. I have a 5 year old little boy and as parents that may suffer with the same symptoms as me, it isn't practical to be having these symptoms and feeling this way when you have a child and have to be on the go and do school runs etc. It is getting to the point where me and my partner can't go out when we have a night away from our child because even going to a restaurant for a meal I start panicking then it makes me feel ill all night. I have panic attacks and anxiety daily, most days I feel disorientated continuously... On rare days I have really good days and feel great, (but these are getting rare nowadays.) As time has gone on, I did start to overcome my panic attacks and only had them once a day or a few times a week, but lately I feel it has got a lot worse and I am having them continuously and daily and all throughout the day infact.
My symptoms are:- Although they arent always together:-
Diorientated, spaced out, separated from myself, dizziness, fainting, confused, shakes, racing heart, headaches, eyes go blurry, shortness of breath, feeling sick, head feels heavy, no energy.
I have come on here to try and speak to others going threw the same as me and how you deal with it and how long it's been going on with yourselves.
Thank you for reading. C 💓
