Hi, I have been around on this site for a while becuase I have suffered from anxiety related problems since the age of 11 (I am now 24) and they have consistently gotten worse and worse. One of my biggest anxiety problems was palpatations (the whole shebang, fast, skipping etc etc) and finally about 1 month ago my Gp put me on beta blockers to try and stop them (after having all the tests done), now though instead of getting really fast palpatations I now seem to have manafested soemthing that is just as scary and I have no idea why (I sound paranoid but I know that it is happening). Sometimes it feels as though my heart stops, only for a second or so and then carrys on as normal (no skipping or extra fast to catch up), but when it does it it makes me jump and gasp out loud and I will go fuzzy from head to toe, seconds later my legs will collapse amd everything will start to spin. If I am in bed when it happens it seems as though my pulse drops to incredibly slow, I will get a really nervous, jittery feeling in my stomach and eventually I will need the toilet, this can happen for a couple of hours. Also, when I go to sit down somewhere my heart feels as though it stops for a second and once again I get really dizzy and hot and sweaty.

I just don't know what is going on, when I spoke with my GP he said that it wasmn't the Beta Blockers becuase I wasn't on a strong enough dose for it to do that, he reckons it might just be a weird panic attack. I don't understand.

I feel as though I ought to be locked up in an mental hospital, my life is falling apart, along with this I also am Agoraphobic, I suffer from Disassociation, Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy and Idiopathic Intercranial Hypertension and also Visual Deterioration. I feel as though I am nothing more than a burden on my hubby, I had to finsh work in March this year becuase I am unable to even leave my home any more. I just want my life back and I have no clue what to do.

Can anyone help?
