[QUOTE=Biyak123]I need some feed back. I am really desperate! I have been having many symptoms :

I had many symptoms but the ones I can remember are:
Dizzy, Light Headed, heart palpatations, my chest hurt (thought I was having a heart attack), Panic type feeling, If I left the house I would get panicky... I can't remember the others off hand.

I went to the hospital, they did a full blood work up and ekg and everything was fine. I went to my doctor who sent me to a cardiologist. I had a Halter Monitor, EKG, Echocardiogram, Nuclear Stress Test and T-Wave Alternative done... all were fine. I finally told my regular doctor although I am very relieved that everything turned out fine, I still have the anxiety and it worries me when I drive my son home from school.

The doc put me on Lexapro (10mg) and to me, it was a "wonder drug". He actually upped the dose a bit as I still have the anxiety attacks from time to time.

I'm not a medical doctor but if all the doctors are saying your fine and that it is anxiety, you might want to have something perscribed for you. I mean, I thought for sure something was wrong with me even after all the tests were run but the lexapro cured that :-)

I also cut out caffeine and quit smoking at the same time. I think it was a good scare (as I was a smoker) but I never want to go through what I went through for that month.

For me, the dizzy/lightheaded stuff is my main problem. you described it well with the feeling like you are on a boat. I obsess about it and that is all I can think about. Lexapro has helped a lot with the obsessiveness. these boards are one of the best discoveries also.
