I think it's allergies but my head feels like a bomb ready to blow up. Every noise I hear makes it feel like my head is being drilled. I am having a hard time getting enough air and my chest feels like it's being squished. I keep stretching which tells me that my muscles aren't getting the oxygen they want,and I am so sleepy and dizzy.
Thanks; it is difficult not to feel anxious when you have these symptoms, even if you don't worry that it's some rare and serious disease. The symptoms themselves are distressing enough by themselves. I also have a sort of back-of-the-mind worry that any congestion that starts to become a cough might turn into pneumonia, and the thought of drowning in my own lung fluid terrifies me! I'm not obsessing over that right now, though; I'm just worried that I won't be able to do all the things I need to because my anxiety will prevent me from functioning.
Thanks, I appreciate the info. I'll give Arm and Hammer a try and follow your suggestions. I took a non-drowsy 24 hour allergy tablet about 1 1/2 hours ago. I can feel my sinuses starting to break up a little and can breathe a bit easier than before but the headache is actually worse right now than it was. I probably just need to give it some time to do its thing. No weird heart palpitations or anything yet.
