I haven't posted in a couple days (and for me that's monumental) but I've been having a really rough past week, I thought staying off the forum might help get my mind off of anxiety but I didn't really see too much of a difference either way. Anyway, I come seeking helping/advice/comfort as per usual.
For over a month now I've been experiencing extreme shortness of breath that has been continuously getting worse. I'm on a cocktail of different medications for my anxiety/panic and although some of the medications help to alleviate some of my symptoms - nothing has helped in regards to my shortness of breath. I've been doing my best not to think about it but it's really been getting me down. Today I was on the phone with my boyfriend (and I was laying in bed) just having a normal conversation and all of a sudden he said "Why are you breathing so loudly?"
this really alarmed me because today has been especially bad in regards to the shortness of breath.
I've also been EXHAUSTED
for the past couple of days. I get anywhere between 8-10 hours of sleep and once I'm awake in the morning I just want to go straight back to bed. I yawn constantly throughout the day and feel so tired and weak. I literally could fall asleep at the drop of a hat and all I want to do is be laying in bed all day because I'm so exhausted (I don't even do much! I had to quit my job about a month ago due to my anxiety and constantly feeling ill) so I'm pretty much just around the house all day, sometimes I go out and try and do stuff but never usually things that exert too much energy. I have no idea what's going on with my body
I'm so scared, I wake up every morning believing that it will be my last day on earth and that I will die. Every day I wake up and my symptoms seem to be worse and it's just progressed now to the point where I feel so ill all the time and exceptionally weak. I've had so many tests run on me and multiple doctors have given the clear multiple times. I'm convinced I have something seriously wrong with me and spend the majority of my day convincing myself that I've been misdiagnosed and truly have a blood blot in my lung (pulmonary embolism).
Also, all day off/on I've been getting this "building pressure" feeling in my head. It feels like someone is inflating a ballon in my head and it will last a couple minutes then slowly deflate. It has happened about four-five times today and it's just making me worry even more.
Can anybody offer me any insight? I'm in a bad spot.
