How can this just be Anxiety???
« on: March 15, 2014, 11:31:04 AM »
Does anyone else suffer from 24/7 Hyperventilation (breathlessness), dizziness/"off-balance" feelings, and depersonalization????

I've been suffering with all this (plus other random physical symptoms that come and go)...to this extent, 24/7, for almost 2 years now. I just want to hide away and cry sometimes.
I am so tired....physically and mentally  :traurig001:

I'm starting to think crazy......is this really Anxiety????

Thank you for the response  :yes:

But, quick question, do you have issues 24/7, too???
Mine just get better or worse throughout the day....but, never, actually, go completely away...
....the symptoms are always there  :fragend005:

I definitely go through periods where I feel so good and I wonder why I'm ever anxious.  However, those are rare and treasured: )
Most of the time, I have a constant level of anxiety that simmers in the background and occasionally spikes when I am triggered. 
I know you are doing so much to try and get better!  Keep at it girl!

Yes, I have suffered 24-7 dizziness for 2 years now.
The only thing that helps ease this symptom is benzos, even though I hate taking them.
 I need them to get by whenever I go out (That's how bad my symptoms are).
The benzos usually help ease my dizziness at least 60%, but this only lasts until the benzo wears off.

I used to suffer 24-7 depersonalisation, but that isn't so constant anymore, though it does hit me hard at random times, especially when I am away from home.
I suffer breathlessness too, where my breath is extremely shallow, and I feel like I am suffocating- recently this has become a daily problem.

You are not alone, I find it extremely difficult to believe this is all anxiety, but I have been through so many tests, and suffered for so long ( as I am sure you have too), so it is highly unlikely it is anything serious, and most likely stress and anxiety.
Hang in there, I pray things will get better soon for you.

I had the same symptoms for about 2.5-3 months. I had my lungs checked and my balance as well but I did not suffer from anything. My xrays showed that I am born with larger lungs but still ranging within the normal scale. After that it took me aprox. a month to realize that I was actually fine.

Look yourself in the eyes in the mirror several times a day and tell yourself that you do not suffer from anything and that it is just the anxiety feeding off of your fears. Every time you experience the problem just keep telling yourself it isnt real. At the beginning that might be 300 times a day and you will have many, many setbacks when you think it goes the right way. Dont give up, it is just your anxiety desperately trying to gain control of your life - do not let that happen! :)
