I know this is long but please read if you have the time and think you may be of help.
3 times in a week this has happened to me. I'm driving (once I was teaching class) and all of a sudden I get dizzy. Not like - ooh the world is spinning - but like I almost black out like I'm losing air. And everything gets numb. I don't even want to say dizzy because it's really different - but that's the only word I can think of. then I start to get scared because I know I'm going to pass out and probably die. One doc says it's panic attacks - the other says it's the flu. The only time I have ever been this scared was when I thought I was in a tornado.
Here's why I don't think it is panic attacks - I have a stressful job but I have been WAY more stressed in my life before and when these happen it's never when I'm in a stressful situation.Also - I have a pretty good life, I don't have any anxiety problems or depression. And when it happens it's not like I'm stressing out or freaking out (I've had severe anxiety before in times of extreme stress and this is totally different and sooo scary) Is this familiar to anyone? Is there anything else it could be??? Thank you so much for reading this.
