So I was having a “normal” day at work today, when I started feeling lightheaded. It was kind of mild at the beginning,.. so what I have been doing is trying to ignore it by distracting myself with work and other activities.
But today it was a challenge. I felt I almost fainted while seeing a client. I do counseling, and I felt I needed the counseling at that moment. The lightheadedness was so intense that I started to have tunnel vision. My hands started sweating , and my mouth was dry.
A few months ago doctors never found what was wrong with my heart, if anything. My thyroid is fine and my sugar level is also normal. I have no GI problems either. So I’m still stuck with assuming it’s just anxiety or a more serious condition that has not been detected yet. Still taking anxiety medication on a daily basis, and I’m mot sure if it’s doing anything at all. I did have side effects of the medication at the beginning.
There was no reason to be anxious about anything in particular. And it lasted until I got home from work.. But first I had to pick up my son from a baseball game and that took forever to get to him and back home.. I thought I wasn’t going to make it but I did. I felt better when I got home. I keep wondering if this is just anxiety or if it’s something more serious. I keep thinking of all the previous episodes that I have had these and keep remembering them in detail in my head.
I will continue to do what I can including meditation, exercise and mindful activities. I guess I will continue to take my medications as well. Or maybe start trying CBD oil. Don’t know..
To be continued ….
