Im new to the forum but heres a little about me,
So I started maybe 9 months ago with dizziness and lightheadedness and just generally feeling unwell. Im not one to go to the doctors so i battled through, I was going through final exams and full time work so put it down to needing a rest. Anyway it finally got annoying so went to the doctors had the usual blood tests ect done and everything fine... doctor put it down to my drinking habits. (To make it clear I am not alcohol dependant but a normal teenage student who likes a good night on the weekends.) But anyway thought eyy if it makes me better I wont even drink at all. So 5 months passed without even a pint with a meal and i gradually got more symptoms but certainly bearable. More dizziniess, muscle aches, head aches, general feeling of been unwell, palpitations and chest pain.
Recently iv just been offered a job away from home and away from all my family and friends. Consciously I dont feel worried or anything about it because its something iv spent 6 years studying for, however, I have to have a medical to which I have stated that i do not suffer from anxiety.
If I lose this job because of anxiety then it has beaten me but it also wouldnt be safe for me to be going dizzy at my new job.
Iv searched the internet up and down but its all the same nonsence so I was wanted real life stories and ways to overcome it. Has anyone found any ways?
I dont know what has triggered GAD but its starting to take over my life. I have literally 2 weeks to control it before I leave.
Thanks in advance
