Hi all, for the past month i have been a wreck. I am 15 and a male, almost 16. I have vertigo, but its not that bad (in the way that i am not getting drop-attacks frequently anymore). I am a hypocondriac (sp?), i now constantly worry about what people think of me, worry if i have any diseases, i have fears of dying, needles, passing out, vomiting. Sometimes my swallowing and breathign become something i have to conciously perform. sometimes i see starts when i sit up from chairs or bed. once in a while my right ear weill ring (same side i got hit in the head with a basketball in 6th grade, which caused Vertigo) I am always sweating, always nervous and jumpy (school bells, people talking really loud, sharp noises).
The worst part about this is that sometimes i feel a giant wave of lethargy. I felt great these past two days, no symptoms of any of the above. All of a sudden today when i was about to leave for wal-mart, a wave of day-dreaming hit me and i would stare off into the distance. people whould say things and its like i would hear them a half a second too late, so it would sound really loud. I get oversensitive to light and sound and even touch, like the clothes on my own back bother me. i cant focus on one thing because i am worrying if i will pass out or what is happening. its like im not even in my body. I cant describe the feeling and its making me feel so bad.
also my hair comes out (little strand every where, from every part of my body like down there and eyebrows), and i am so moody because i am afraid!
Besides seeing a doctor (afraid of needles) what can i do? I know that if i see a doctor things may get better, but they will want blood work and i will pass out from the sight of the needle. What is wrong with me?
