    feel faint.

    I am currently off work on the sick the now because i can't face leaving the house.
    Everytime i do leave or try too, i feel faint and get dots in my eyes and i start panicking, i know its my negative thinking that's causing it but i'm trying so hard to overcome it.
    i started AD's about 1 month ago, don't think they are working for me.
    please tell me i'm not the only person experiencing this? is feeling faint and sleepy a normal anxiety to have?
    I feel like such a dramatic person but it feels so real!
    terrified to drive my car also now.

    I have been exactly the same. My anxiety is high and I'm highly sensitised. Anxiety is very powerful!

    Re: feel faint.

    Hi, and welcome. Very sorry to hear how rubbish you're feeling. Do you find these symptoms only come on when facing a situation you're anxious about? If so, it sounds like panic attacks. I used to have the same problem and it took me a long time to get diagnosed because I didn't know panic attacks could make you feel faint, and I never got the classic heart pounding, breathless thing. Please, please, please don't avoid the situations you fear. You're doing really well to keep trying, and take it one step at a time. The more you avoid things, the more likely you are to then panic about them. Don't try to tackle it all at once, but do keep plugging away. How long have you been on meds? Are you having any therapy?
