I have been doing a lot better lately as for my depression. as for the anxiety i'm still having some issues but I'm still working at it. I have a question though and not sure where to post it but some times i just get lightheaded with no other symptoms other than some time feeling unreality? I'm wondering if its anxiety related or may be something more. I realize we are not doctors on here but just wanted some imput.
gjb616 seems that you are feeling better some it takes longer just have to ride it for awhile and see anxiety and depression overlap a lot and its really hard to tell which is acting up..Also from time to time the medications can make us feel a bit fuzzy or light in the head not all the time just litle flair ups I know i have had that off and on..or also at times our anxiety is a bit more and its kind of break through anxiety that is why it is not all the time just from time to time but you should let the doctor know might need a bit of adjustment..hope that helps some Chuck1957
I am certainly not a doctor but I have had a lot of anxiety issues in the past so I know what you mean about feeling light headed, almost disoriented sometimes if it's you're like me. The truth is it could be anxiety or something worse, and the thought of it possibly being something worse will, ironically, cause anxiety... so my best advice is this. Take a deep breath... and release. If it is something more serious its probably got to do with either a vitamin deficiency, blood sugar related, or blood pressure. The good news is there's a few simple tricks to decided if its one of these. Take a multi-vitamin daily.It wont hurt regardless if its a deficiency or not. Remember to drink water and try to eat well if you can, it helps your body to absorb the good stuff. If you can get your hands on a blood sugar meter (most grandparents have one) check your's the next time you're not feeling well. If you can't find one, eat a spoon full of peanut butter.
If its low, it will raise it enough to calm you. If it's high, it wont raise it so much it's dangerous. As for the blood pressure, if you don't have access to a blood pressure cuff then just keep a close eye on your pulse and heart rate. If you feel yourself getting flushed you may just need to lye down and see if it passes. I'm not sure if any of this will help but I have found that the best way to handle anxiety is to educate yourself on the things that worry you and avoid your triggers.
