Sorry to post again. I posted 3 weeks ago saying I was feeling really rough. I have been through so much stress recently with my son ill with anxiety and panic attacks and daughter taken into hospital and now she's poorly again. It's drained me. 4 weeks ago whilst my daughter was ill I felt the ground moving beneath me..I had a few days of it and carried on but suddenly it became constant and it triggered panic. To the point I was bed ridden for a week. My husband called our gp who came to see me. I was terrified I had a brain tumour or something. I felt weak in my legs and like the ground beneath was moving as I walked. I feel I'm just off a trampoline and you feel you're still bouncing and unsteady. It's horrible. My gp checked me over thoroughly and said Julie this is anxiety and extreme stress. Our son has been having panic attacks daily, terrified to go to school, told us he's suicidal and our gp referred him to camhis who refused to help him. After a month of me battling they agreed I wasn't the best person to help him like they initially said just because I have an anxiety disorder doesn't mean I can give him therapy grrrr!
My gp said all of that streas had a huge affect on me and I needed rest. The week after things improved and I felt much better. Dizziness there but much better. Last eek it creepy back in and my fear returned. Today I feel awful. Weak all over, I go heavy in my limbs and heavy in my throat and I feel when I walk like I will collapse. It terrifies me. I also feel cold which could be my anxiety I know.
I'm seeing my gp again tomorrow. He will again do a house call..I hope. I feel such an idiot but all this has flared up my anxiety so much and as a result of feeling so unsteady I am struggling to go out. My agoraphobia I had a few years ago is in full force but all because I feel the ground is moving so much.
I'm scared. My anxiety is crippling me since this started. I cry I will have an awful Christmas. I'm terrified I will collapse. I am upset I'm not taking my kids out doing Christmas things and I feel I am a let down. I keep crying.
My tsh was tested in 2013 and was 4.2 and free T4 10.6. Told all was normal. I was tested end of August this year and tsh was 5.35 and T4 11. Again told I am fine.
I just feel scared stiff. I have had anxiety many years but I've never felt like this. I'm terrified I will collapse and end up in hospital which is my biggest fear. My husband said julie you improved for a week and barely noticed the dizziness now it's back because our daughter is ill again and you're worried. I have been extremely stressed in the last couple of months but I haven't ever felt this bad before with anxiety. I guess it did improve but this weekend I've felt so ill again. I feel woozy like I'm moving side to side just sat down which is new. I randomly go heavy all over and throat goes heavy and I feel I will fall through the floor. Feel the floor is moving as I walk. I feel awful. I had improved so I'm not sure why I feel this bad again. Can my thyroid be doing this? I'm so scared it's a brain tumour or something but my gp said my eyes are fine. My BP is normal. Balance tests fine..no muscle weakness, ears fine....
I will speak to my gp tomorrow but what can I say? Can anyone relate? I keep feeling really cold in my feet. My body feels cold but my hands are warm.
Sorry to post again. I just feel very scared feeling like this and like I'm losing my life I'm so upset i can't get out or shop. Worried my Christmas will be awful 😢😢😢😢 I had the worst few years after i had my family turn on me after my brother turned violent and attacked my husband. I developed an anxiety disorder and since I've had a few tough years but it had got so much better and life was good again but the last few months have been he'll with my son struggling after being bullied, my daughter ill alot, my husband having issues in work, myself feeling poorly on and off then my panic an anxiety returning full on.
