    HELP! Constantly dizzy/foggy from "anxiety"

    Wanted10 posted:
    I am so upset and frustrated. I'm having a panic attack right now...Long story short, I started having panic attacks out of nowhere 5 years ago. I didn't know what it was, and then someone told me it was anxiety/panic attacks. I was on meds, and then came off of them a year ago and was fine. I've also done a lot of psychotherapy that has helped me cope with the intrusive thoughts and panic.... Anyway, it's happening again that I am CONSTANTLY feeling "high" like, like I just smoked weed, so foggy, I don't know how to explain it. But I'm not anxious or worried about anything!! I have no negative thoughts, I just wake up and 5 minutes later I feel like I'm in another world. Is this even anxiety??? Does anyone experience this? I'm so upset that I feel like this, because I have a good life and I want to enjoy it!

    I have been feeling the same way for a week now. I've been having panic attacks almost constantly. I don't know what causes this but I'm pretty sure it is anxiety related. If you need someone to talk to about it I can give you my email address.
