For the last 4 days iv been real dizzy unsteady and lightheaded and my vision is foggy i don't have any idea what it could be? but its bringing me even more down and scaring the crapp out of me ..It seem that iv had this before but not as bad . it feels like the weirdest thing ever cause it feels like its coming from the back of my neck? it is stiff all the time and feels as though when i move it side to side pressure is pulling it down like its on a balance beam also my neck becomes numb and makes it difficult to swallow its like the muscles stop working or something in my jaws and throat also makeing my throat dry and its been this way non stop! for the past 4 days and it scares the crap out of me! i try to just ignor it and try to go outside or do normal activities but still its there and i feel as though im in wonder land like im not even here like derealization and like im going to loose my mind and neaver come back to reality i don't know what this could be but i read about something called Cervical Vertigo and that seems to almost hit it right on but i still wouldn't know why my whole back of my neck would get numb and stiff causeing me hard to swallow? Anyways that's not the only thing by far that's going on!. I also have Reflux thats causes my stomach to hurt and always feel full even when i don't eat so its hard for me to eat cause of my stomach being soo screwed up also its very hard to take a breath cause of so much pressure in my upper abdomen so im loosing weight that i cant afford to lose! cause i only weigh like 115 now and im a 23 male 'that's not normal!' But if that's not enough! Iv had severe chronic anxiety and panic attacks for 6 years now turning me into almost a complete Agoraphobic And if that's not bad enough! I just got back from the hospital cause i was have severe stomach pain and they ran some test and found that my pancreas level was levitated and told me that i have Acute Pancreatitis and it might be my gallbladder too so now im even more scared to eat cause i don't want to feel that pain ever again especially with all this other stuff going on Its all hitting me at one time so i don't know what to do anymore im completely! misurable! I have nobody that understands cause they never felt any of this before so im basically all alone in this and it sucks its very scary and frustrating i wake up in total depression and anxiety and that sucks cause its like what can i do? i dont even want to wake up I prey to God to please help me!!

Dear Wired,

Hello, I am Kitt and welcome to Healing Well.

I am glad you found us and I had read your post several, so sorry you are in so much pain and turmoil. 

Some of your concerns could certainly be caused by anxiety. However Pancreatitis is the one that pops out at me.

If you could shared a little more information re the meds you use, what they did for you to treat the pain and what were your discharge instructions from the ER it may help me understand a bit more.

Keep posting.  Again Welcome.

What did the ER doctor tell you to do?

Today is here
And soon will be gone.

Well i was only there for a short period of time i finished off one bag of the IV and my stomach started feeling better then he asked me if i wanted to stay the night and sense my stomach was feeling better i said no but i had no idea what acute pancreatitis was i didn't think it was a big deal but anyways the doc gave me some pain pills but i didn't take them and also gave me some pills for nausea and i just went home but now my stomach is kind of hurting again and this is the 4th day sense i was at the hospital he told me before i left to drink water and eat a bland diet so i was like ok so i didn't eat much of nothing when i got home but some little bits of chicken

And i was OK but now it hurts a little again i dont know if its from my reflux or if its still the acute pancreatitis? but it sure is scaring me cause i cant eat and iv got to eat cause i dont weigh nothing im a 23 male i ust to weigh 126 pounds

And now i only weigh 110 and that's not normal and thats  what really scares me cause it hurts to eat i love to eat i love food but everytime i try to go to eat something its like it aint going to happen cause the whole day even if i dont eat i have a constant fullness feeling of pressure and tightness along with a little bit of pain iv went to almost all the docs and taken almost all the meds there is to take for stomach like nexium,prilosec,carafate,and previcide and still nothing! has changed i had almost all the test and all they came up with is reflux and thats it besides when i just went to the hospital from severe pain and the told me i had acute pancreatitis but still nothing has changed i dont know what to do anymore? im scared and my anxiety and panic attacks are making everything els 100000 times worse im completely miserable i just wish that just half of what i got would go away just half thats all i ask i could deal with everything els but its really hard to deal with all this things at once.... confused

Wow! That's a lot of stuff to be dealing with at the same time! But believe it or not, you'll find that a lot of us have had the same level of dispair, fear and hopelessness. And often the downward spiral begins with or is aggravated by a physical illness.

Are you being treated for the panix disorder?

The aloneness you speak of is a really awful thing. But the good news is that it's something you have some control over. Seek out a support group - or a counselor - and develop a regular schedule of interaction with others who are struggling. Just knowing that each week there will be a time where you can "unload" with others that you can trust can be a real boost emotionally.

Don't give up! I for one have been in the dark places, and now I'm back. Not free of emotional pain, but a much healthier outlook and perspective on the troubles that are a natural part of being human.
