Re: Just got back from neurologist--please help!



Hi Jill, Our stories are very similar. The worst part of all of this is the anxiety/panic it has caused me ever since the last faint. I think about it ever single day. As soon as I start to feel anything in my stomach I wonder if its going to happen. My heart will start to race, I get sweaty and start to feel weak. This happens at least once a day now. Today I had to get off the subway before my stop because I was scared of it happening in front of everyone. I'm sure nothing would have happened but I've become paranoid. I'm already an anxious kind of person, so this is the worst thing that could happen to me! Did you find a way to control your panic attacks? I need to get this out of my head and move on with my life but its hard right now.
