I understand EXACTLY what you are talking about. That is the most confusing part of this anxiety/panic disorder. For example: I had really bad nausea for MONTHS..like Oct, Nov and Dec. Then all of a sudden it just left. I havent had a bad episode since Dec. But in the meantime..I am getting those flutterings more and more lately, but no nausea. Weird. It is just strange to me, how we can be anxious ALL the time, and yet not ALL of the symptoms we suffer with are present all the time. I get that dizziness you are describing EVERY DAY. It is sooo frightening. It feels as though any moment you are going to hit the floor( faint), stumble, etc. When I got out places(grocery shopping) I always have to LEAN on the buggy, as if I need it to support myself so I dont fall over. It is just so weird how the symptoms come and go.
I asked my physchologist this very question around the year '98, '99. I said..."Why do they( symptoms) differ all the time and why do they just come out of nowhere". He said "Well, that is how panic/anxiety works, sometimes you might have ALL the symptoms present, sometimes just one or two present. And they come out of nowhere because that is why they call it PANIC attacks..it just STRIKES without warning a lot of the time.". So he really didnt explain WHY it happens this way, just bacially that is the nature of panix/anxiety.
In His Grip,
hi there, why do panic attacks always have different symptoms. for a while it would be the racing of the heart and shakiness, fear of dying. but lately it has come into my stomach, dizziness, feeling of passing out, headache, with heart racing. sometimes they are not as severe as others. why is this?????? thanks
