Feeling Hopeless and dizzy
I am (was) a totally health, active 30 something, single mother with a great job. A few months ago I had a terrible faininting spell that landed me in the ER. I had a bunch of test and they ruled out anything serious. I've never gotten myself back together since. I am being treated at a diziness center using Phsycial Therapy but I still have this chronic sense of off-balance. Sometimes, the off-balance gets so ad I think I might faint again, which inturn causes me panic/anxiety. I don't know what's worse...being dizzy or the fear of having a dizzy spell/fainting. They are equally madning.
I've tried Mezeline, Zoloft, Paxil, Valium and my Dr. currently put me on Xanax. The Xanax is working to control dizziness but when it wears off, I have terrible trembling and worse diziness. I now have severe depression, I think from the Xanax, but maybe frustration too. I am not generally a depressive person. I have only been on xanax for 4 weeks or so, but i feel helpless to try and get off but sick when I'm on.
I'm totally lost!! I'm calling my Doctor again on Monday but I don't know even know what to say anymore? I still feel like the crap, the Xanax is horrible but it's the only thing I have right now! Ugh.
Any hope, or ideas? I think I'm going to feel like this forever and I can't do that.................Thanks.
