I can't describe how RELIEVED I was to read all your responses! I have had an irrational (because it is!) fear of fainting since November, had a horrible hospital experience in August where my partner fainted, and it looked like he dropped down dead! (I was the one in hospital, he fainted at the sight of me having blood work) and I was just describing the incident back in November and came over REALLY funny, how I imagined it felt like to just pass out. Ever since I have felt like this every day. I would like to point out I haven't ever fainted in my life, and all my panic attack symptoms are like those of fainting, time slows, light headed, jelly legs etc.. getting to the point where I can't leave the house. I'm SO relieved to see I'm not alone! Has anyone got any tips to help?? Breathing doesn't relax me as it slows me down and makes it worse, I was on beta blockers and they actually lower your blood pressure and made me feel worse. Feel really at the end of my tether now!
