I had mild social anxiety in high school & was taking Zoloft. After a year or so, I stopped taking the meds & I did alright.

Starting in the summer of 2010, I began to get tremors in my hands and legs when I was under high stress (usually caused by my then-boyfriend). After we broke up, I was fine.

But last Saturday night while at a concern, I totally freaked out. I had this intense urge to get out of there as fast as I could. But I was stuck in my seat b/c we were crammed in there like sardines. That made me more nervous. My head felt so dizzy, my mind was going 100mph, and I thought my heart was racing. I did deep breathing & tried to focus on positive things. I calmed myself, but the dizzy feeling came back twice more during the concert, lasting about 10-15 minutes each.

On Sunday morning I had a mild episode with dizziness & the urge to run while I was out with my boyfriend.

Monday night I was at home & began to get tremors, the chills, and a dizzy feeling. I went to the doctor on Tuesday morning. He took my blood pressure and said it was normal. He said it sounded like anxiety, so he gave me Zoloft & Valium (off-brand versions).

I was going to see my boyfriend, so I didn't take my medicine immediately in case it would effect my driving. On the drive there, I passed through an area with rocky cliffs. I got this weird sensation that my vehicle was standing still & the scenery was moving. I thought I was going to pass out. It was so weird. But then I felt better.

I got to my boyfriend's house and broke down in tears. He had to go to work soon, but he had his mother follow me home to make sure I was safe.

I got home and began to cry again. The Valium made me tired & I can't remember anything that happened after I took it. I was asleep on the couch for about 3 hours.... had no idea my mother had come home.

I woke up this morning & have a heavy-feeling head and a tenseness in my neck. All these crazy thoughts are going through my head like I have a tumor or that I'm having a heart attack.

This is all new to me. I don't see how people deal with it on a daily basis.
