So 15% isn't really that bad is it?  Numbness and tingling happen to me also, usually if I'm breathing too fast.  I get lightheadedness and fear I'll pass out each time I have an episode when I first started CBT it would look like this


1) I get lightheaded and I'm afraid I'll passout

2) I get them a bunch of times each week at least 10 times

3) I'm 50% sure I'll pass out

4) I've never passed out so my thinking is wrong... if my thinking was right I should have fainted 5 times

5) I need to learn that even if I get lightheaded the chances of passing out are slim

No, you're right, 15% isn't that bad. Higher than I'd like, of course, but everything higher than 0% is higher than I'd like.

I just worry especially with that MRI coming that it might be something horrible. Nothing is scarier for me than a doctor saying "I don't know what that is."

Seems like CBT helped you a lot. I'll look into it.
