Hi, my name is chris. I'm a 19 year old male with crippling anxiety symptoms. I've had it everyday since my first panic attack in school, sophomore year. I just want to discuss the way I've been feeling over the last few months. I've had to go get my heart checked, because I had so much pressure in my chest and always feeling faint, that I thought maybe I had a coronary artery disease. Of course, I may not have thought that if I didn't read about it. This was about four months ago, and after the cardiologists ran an echocardiogram, a stress test, a 24 hour holter monitor, and said my blood pressure was fine, there was no arrythmias and I have a strong heart, there was some amount of relief but only for about a day. Once I felt like the heart disease was ruled out I then thought maybe I had carotid artery disease because there's always a pressure in my neck and head, which causes me to get pale and get really dizzy and lose all my energy. The last few weeks have been by far the worst however. I got a job, thinking that I was finally ready to feel better, but one day I had a panic attack. I got those high blood pressure symptoms where you feel faint and out of the body. I also spent the last half hour of work trying to stay awake because I felt like I was about to pass out any minute. The next day at work I went back, worked for about an hour and ask the manager to drop me off because I almost fainted again. When I walked into the breakroom, they said I looked pale, then I got this pressure in my head that made me really dizzy. I've since quit my job and the last three weeks I've been stuck in bed. Everywhere I go I break into a cold sweat, and get shivery, out of energy, and sick. I've never actually fainted but I don't know how much closer you could get. It's almost impossible for me to function when I go out and about, because I get so sick and tired I can't even stand. Does anyone have similar experiences, and know for a fact that they have anxiety?does anyone know if there are other illnesses that cause these symptoms. any help or insight would be more appreciated than I could express in words. thank you.
