just found this website - relieved or nervous?!

Hi everyone,
As I was searching again for 'head shocks' i came across this website.
i was reading through the first steps page with a tear in my eye. have i finally found something i can put my symptoms down to?
For the last 4 years or so I have suffered from nausea, shortness of breath, tingling in my hands, a couple of panic attacks, and more recently head pains, extreme sudden dizziness, hot flushes and cold sweats.

A couple of years ago, I went to see my doctor with these symptoms, and he tested my oxygen level (i think that's what he did, he put something on my finger) and he said I was actually hyperventilating there and then. I had gone to the docs complaining (again) of nausea, and generally feeling unwell, when I felt nauseus, this lead me to panic, as I have a phobia of being sick, and so began the vicious circle.

I am only 23, so don't know if this is common in people my age. I am not sure there are any triggers when my symptoms come on, but I am a very deep thinker, and negative thinker. however, I am outwardly very confident.

any advice, I would greatly appreciate,

Thanks x
