Full on anxiety attack

After suffering from severe tinnitus and ear blockage for 5 weeks and finding out I had an an aneurysm in my brain recently I have been suffering aches and pains, numbness, extreme fatigue and on my way to work tonight my hands and feet felt numb while driving and I just turned around and went home as I was sure I was going to collapse. I think it may have been a panic attack. Tomorrow I'm going for a CT Angiography scan of my brain and although I am a bit apprehensive I felt okay till I went to my cleaning job. I'm in bed now with a huge headache and screaming tinnitus. Can anyone tell me if this could be some kind of panic thing? I suffer from moderate anxiety normally and do not take medication for it.

It definitely could have been. You’ve been under a lot of stress lately. A lot of times we feel like we aren’t “that” stressed when we really are. I’m sure all of that is running through your subconscious mind whether you realize it or not...and understandably so. Everything will go well tomorrow. Try to get some rest tonight.

Hi :-)

Did you know you can alter your own posts and replies if you make an error

All you do is press the arrow where it says More then it will say Edit , press that and it will take you back into your post or reply , Edit what you want and then just press Edit response I think it says , your post reply will just come back on without any errors we don't always pick up on till we re read what we have put ( which we all do :-)

Maybe you knew this but just thought I would mention it in case you didn't :-) x

I don't have a laptop and I think the smartphones are limited to what we can do on them.

Update. So another one was found today. One week out from my first scan and I've got 2 aneurysms. Both in difficult spots to operate. Next stop neurosurgeon. Wish me luck!

O sweetheart , it must all seem so over whelming for you at the moment and can imagine how your anxiety will be affecting you

But try and swap any negative thoughts and I know it is not easy but the truth of all this is that they have found them in time , they can operate on them and you will be better once they have :-)

Wishing you all the luck in the world and sending positive vibes your way to :-) x

I'm getting awful headaches now and my tinnitus is unbearable. I've downloaded a few calming apps to help. I still haven't heard anything from the hospital regarding my neurology appointment which is adding to my stress. Thanks everyone for your kind words.
