hi Anastasia...........hope you are feeling a bit better. I can relate to your feelings. They are so hard to describe. When I get light headed, I know an attack is starting to come on. If I am out when this happens, I immediately start to slow down my walking, and start breathing thru my nose and exhaling thru my mouth. I find it very helpful when I am at home and it starts, to grab my heating pad and lay with it on my chest. For some reason, the heat calms me and my heart stops pounding, and my breathing comes back to normal. Also, drinking a glass of very cold water seems to help. Its not easy hon, and I feel for you and everyone who has gone thru these feelings. Once you realize you are NOT going to die, it will be so much easier. My therapist told me " no one has ever died from a panic attack."
I have been to the ER numerous times and am glad they have always told me it was anxiety. Listen to your dr. I am sure if he did blood tests, and a complete physical and ruled everything out, and told you it was anxiety, then you need to believe your dr. My dr told me 80% of women who visit him is due to anxiety and stress. So you are not alone, sweetie. One day at a time ok?? Rest and dont forget to nourish your body with good food. I lost 6 lbs in 3 weeks with my broken ribs, because the pain was so bad and anxiety started and then my fibro flared. I didnt practice what I just told you to do. So I am back to eating well, and feeling better. Sometimes I will drink a BOOST vitamin drink and this seems to fuel my body better and faster.
Let us know how you are doing?
HUGS TO YOU
