Hello everyone. I am a 25 year old female with a 1 year old son, I have been married three years. Back in June I found out that I had to have my gallbladder removed because of gallstones, the thought of that absolutely terrified me I was so scared that I was not going to wake up and my son would not have a mother. In the beginning of August I was giving my son a bath and while reaching out to him I had this horrible pain in my chest and the I felt like I was going to pass out so I layed down on the couch. I was terrified then that I was something was wrong with my heart and went to the doc about it. After a chest x-ray and a ekg he told me I had costchondritis and gave me steroids to take. I noticed then that I was up tight after this and was having some dizzy spells. about two weeks after that one day I develped this headache and when it would never go away I went to the doctor and had all kinds of test run for them to tell me that I just have a headache. Well my headache seems to be doing better but I still am really dizzy most of the time and the past two weeks I have had feelings like I was going to pass out again but never do. I am scared to death to go to sleep at night because I am afraid that I will not wake-up. Me and my husband have not been on the best of terms lately and my son has been sick on and off. I am wondering if I am making myself have all these symptons from worrying all of the time.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.

Signs of anxiety include restlessness, a lot of worrying about things that probably will not happen, and not being able to pay attention or remain focused on a task. Sometimes the stress can get extreme and lead to panic attacks. Panic attacks are short times of intense fear and anxiety, which often include quick heartbeats, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness or stomach problems.

Please talk with your doctor if you are having any of these signs.

Some things that may help lower your stress are:

• Getting enough rest (at least 8 hours a day)

• Meditation (sitting quietly with your thoughts)

• Listening to gentle music

• Reading

• Massage

• Taking a warm bath

• Going for walks

• Regular exercise that you are used to doing

Welcome to the world of A & P, you will meet many wonderful members who know what your going through so stick with us.

Hi Andrea Jane
It does sound like you are experiencing anxiety symptoms with the dizziness and fear of passing out etc, anxiety is a very adaptable creature and can create all sorts of symptoms, I have experienced many of the symptoms you have had too.
Have you asked your GP about the possibilty of feeling anxious?
