So I am a 19 year old girl. Currently working full time, and will be starting school back up in the spring semester.

I have been a healthy happy kid for most of my life. Except for the seizures I had when I was about 5 till 10. I just grew out of them, and I took Tegertol medicine for them for 5 years.

Ever since the end of my junior year of high school, i started to experience these weird "attacks." I would get very dizzy, light headed, short of breath, hyperventalating, my heart would pound either really fast, or really hard. I would get warm, and everything seemed to be distant or i felt like I couldn't function.

I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Anxiety Attacks/ Panic Attacks. I wasn't put on medication, because I didn't want to be, and my doctor didn' want to have to. I practiced calming myself down, and I got them from time to time through out the end of my senior year, going into my first year in college. But for a while after the first semester of college, they seemed to be okay, i didnt get them that often.

However, with in the last about 5 months I want to say. I have been having these really bad symptoms, and I have been to the emergency room twice, and I just don't feel right. The doctor doesn't really know what's wrong but she says she thinks it could just be this anxiety. I literally get this when I am perfectly fine and there is nothing stressful going on.

I know this isn't anxiety, I know there are hypocondrics out there, that look for a reason to be sick, and that's not me at all! I want to live my life every day to the fullest, and be back out doing the things my friends do having a good time and being happy.


I have been SOOOO FATIGUED. My body (back, neck, shoulders) are so stiff and sore. I have felt so weak in the last 2 months. It seems to be that I get really weak before I eat, and after I eat I feel paralyzed, I feel like my legs and arms are lead. I always seem to be tired. I can't walk up the stairs without my heart pounding so hard it feels like its pounding out of my chest.

I was sick in January and April with the flu and strep. And again this last week with a sinis infection and strep. I took a moxicillian for a week. It kinda went away. And now my throat hurts really bad again, and I still have some signs of the sinus infection.

Can you please help me out here? I'm so scared an confused about what's going on.
