I haven't seen this mentioned in detail, and it olls me will fear of some major depressive disorder. When haing a prolonged episode I find it punctuated with brief moments where giddiness and exhilaration was over me like.

Has anyone else experienced this??

Hi . . .I can't say that I have had this experience per se . . .we all react to situations in different ways . . . perhaps there is a trigger for your giddiness . . . . is a good sense of exhilaration? Perhaps this might be something to check out with a med professional . . . check back here as there may be others who have had the experience but the closest I come to it was when I was beginning to recover from my anxiety and I would sometimes have insights into what caused my anxiety which helped me get past that phase and I felt so good . . . but, in truth, I would not describe it as giddiness . . . take care, kc

Thanks I did some looking, and the best description I could find outside of my own, was 'adrenaline rushes', they aren't unpleasant but typically lead to more intense anxiety/panic.

Hi,

I have had adrenaline rushes in the past and, for me, this was a companion to either a pre-panic attack or a panic attack . . . personally, I find these episodes very disconcerting so I am happy that they have decreased in intensity and frequency . . . hopefully this means that I am managing my anxiety better . . . .  I guess it depends on how each of us sees these adrenaline rushes which affects how we describe them . . .I never would have used the word giddiness or exhileration to describe them . . . . I continue to find it so interesting how our individual perceptions of anxiety varies with our background and experiences . . .thanks for sharing yours . . .take care, kc

I myself haven't had any experience with this. However, I'm currently reading Self-Help for your Nerves by Dr Claire Weekes, and she discusses giddiness as a symptom of anxiety. If you haven't read the book, you should. It is helping me understand my symptoms, and comes highly recommended by lots of AZ members.

I can totally relate to your symptoms . I occasionally have spurts of exhilaration and just feel the need to scream and not in a bad way .  Just pent  up energy I guess. This could be some sort of coping thing. I feel somewhat happy during hole this happens bit I am almost afraid to embrace it because I feel a bit looney haha
