I feel quite lightheaded like im floating around in a dream
I feel so not there i dont feel like i can function. Cant go to work etc.
A month ive felt like this
No conditions but taking sertraline and haloperidol
Im female 27
No but i had it checked 2 days ago was 129/79. They have said anxiety
The doctor looked behind my eyes, checked my pulse and tested my urine.
Yeh doctor said its caused by anxiety is this the case?
Havnt had any other exam done. What would that be?
Last blood test i had was about 3-4 months agoa
No i dont think so. What sort of things could it be thats wrong?
Was my blood pressure normal? Ive had it checked 3 times in 2 weeks and wad told was ok.
Is there any possibility it could be a problem with my brain? Is there any condition where your brain can just blackout? Thats what feels like is happening and its scary. I just dont feel like myself at all. Everything arounf me looks strange
Are any of these life threatening? Im scared by this
Would there be other symptOms Present? All i have is this spacey not there feeling 24 hours a day. But its distressing how weird and not myself i feel because of it
What would be your diagnosis at this stage if you were treating me? My doctor seemed so certain it was anxiety
Can that make me feeL so far away from myseLf?
Is there any condition that could cause brain to blackout ang second and make you die? This is how i feel all day long
Would it normallu happen instantly without any warning?
What can i do out of it not there feeling? Its just so distressing. I feel like im not in control of how bad its going to get and im just going to die
So do you not think im dying? Thats what im so worried about and its all i think about 24/7 due to this spaced out feeling. I literally can think of nothing else. Cant go to work, cant go out with friends, watch tv etc
I dont know how to convince myself of that. It feels so so real and certain in my head. It would be so much easier tO feeL like this if i could believe that
Do you think it will go away? Thats another worry that im.stuck like this.
Im back at the doctors monday but they never do anything just tell me to ride it out and take medication
I have done cant get an apoointment month though. If i could just decrease this spaciness a little i could manage. Is there any medication specifically
What actually causes the spaciness in anxiety? Its so extreme it feels so much like a physical problem and never goes away
It would be so much easier if it was physical coz then i could be helped. I just feel like im going to be stuck like this
Yeh its just hard to not be able to get rid of it day in day out. I keep thinking i need to go to hospital aswell with me feeling like this. How can i get through the days better at this stage?
Ive got 1 but cant get appointment month. I mean what can i do in the short term myself to reduce spaciness?
ThIng is inside i dont feel anxiOus if i didnt have spaciness id be fine
I know i just wish i knew what the cause was? No 1 believes me wen i say how bad it is
Thanks everyone keeps saying it cant be that bad. I just feel so alone i feel like no1 has been through this
Have you ever known any1 to feel like this?
Did they get well? Im scared how long im going to have to cope with this
I just find it so hard to believe anxiety can cause you to feel so so ill. It just doesnt make sense to me
I know it just doesnt seem true that it can make me this ill
I want to believe my mind just wont allow me to with it being so bad
I know i understand that. Just looking comstantly. I keep asking family, my partner etc if im going to die
So really theres basically nothing i can do but ride it out and wait ?
Ok just finally if i was dying would there be other symptoms present just trying to believe and get my head around it?
Would it be things like shortness of breath and would i have pain?
So what sort of things? I need to know to try and be rational
But are you sure mine arnt life thteatening? It feels so much that im about to die
It just feels like im definitely dying i cant understand how im not when i feel so awful
I just need some reassurance from.a doctor. I feel so so ill i just dont understand
Can you just try and explain it all to me one last time? Im so frightened its unreal at the minute
I cant find the bit whEre it says im defo not going to die
Well can i just ask why i feel worse now 1 month in than i felt when it first started. ?
Can the haloperidol make you feel worse whej u start taking it?
How long should it take to work usually?
Ive been on it -5days now but spaced out feeling worse than ever
I am on monday but im scared ill die in the meantime
Do you think i need to?
I dont believe anyone coz of how ill i feel. I just feel like no1 understands how bad this is and theres no way out of this
I will, from the tests that have been done and from visiting doctor previously would they have known if anything seriously wrong?
My nose has bled about 3 times in a week aswell. Is this related?
Really? Its only a little bit not much. Could it be related to anything else along with the spaciness?
Can anxiety make you feel drunk like sort of not on the planet?
