hi im 23 and here is my story:> im going to give you guys my information and story. feel free to right back with your similar story's. i have spent around 50 thousand dollars on test and some of the best doctors with top of the line insurance in America. SO PLEASE refrain from saying its basic stuff no offense the only basic analogy i could throw out at this point its anxiety and panic attack disorder no matter how irritating and discombobulating it is and all the above. there are to many complexity's beyond what modern science can produce answers for at this point and time. unless your are a huge CEO and go stay at john hopkins for a week or Cleveland clinic or even mayo. ive had the best of the best and every type of doctor you can think of and all the best test's.

so my panic attacks all started about 5 months ago. right before i went to sleep my left arm and jaw started to have a tingly sensation and i thought i was going to have a heart attack. i would take my blood pressure and it was (perfect). come to find out it was a bad side effect to a medication i was on at the time. (if only i would have known that at the time). i felt the sensations for about 5 days every nite before i went to bed. i was at a casino with my father in law and almost got into a fight with a drunken idiot (not my fault). so afterwards my hands got sweaty and clammy and started to feel cold and then my limbs started to go numb on the left side. thought of a heart attack occurred and the numbness spread tell it consumed me as i was praying for a miracle to save me or god as i was running every red light going 90 miles per hour towards a hospital getting tunnel vision and seeing floaters feeling like i was going to pass out. so i park my car in the road stumble towards the registration counter at the ER and told them i was having a heart attack. with a 190 over 130 blood-pressure they hooked me up to an ekg and had 2 doctors around me checking me out. soooooo it turns out that i was having a panic attack the ekg was fine they even ran a stress ecg at 4 in the morning which was unheard of. was fine. my blood work was perfect and they gave me medication to settle me down and my blood pressure went back to a perfect 120 over 76. BUT I DIDNT BELIEVE THEM

[SIZE="2"]ok heres my theory and philosophy on the matter of the horrid anxiety.[/SIZE] anxiety will trick you. you will focus on one symptom and it will ease up then another one will occur. it will lead you in circles second guessing yourself and create udder fear and frustration. thoughts that your going to die at any second drive this condition. it manipulates fear into your mind. and the enemy isnt the anxiety its yourself. the mind is a powerful thing. evolution did all these miraculous things and were just idiots screwing it up. so have self control and relax. get on an SSRI to counter act the faulty chemicals in your brain and try to have a stress reduced life. alot of anxiety can be brought on by acute stress syndrome.

[SIZE="2"]a better life[/SIZE]
just run the important test like a stress ecg and a 48 hour holter. brain mri with and without dye and a eeg. get a mediocre bloodwork run up done. if all is well and white blood cell count is normal thyroid and oxygen levels in your blood are fine. you will be fine. dont run anymore test after that. instead go do yoga- meditation-trivia games-puzzle games- get out into the sun and relax. take nice warm baths-see the positive in life conquer your fears dont hide from them. you have to lose all sense of control. imagine yourself as a river you cant go against the stream you just have to go with the flow.

but the only thing that gets under my skin is that now i have constant dizziness. and heavy fatigue.

take care all
