Are you there?
I have not seen a physician yet about these symptoms. I recently started a new job and had to wait for my health insurance to kick in
Today is the first day of coverage and i made an appt with a Dr. I'm just very stressed about the situation. The headaches are not really an issue anymore.
It is more just this lightheaded dizzy feeling. My balance is not affected.
it is more of just an "off" feeling
I have always been prone to high stress levels and usually worry about things that are not very realistic
I throw up a lot when i am stressed too. i have been doing it my entire life. I have been doing that quite a bit lately as well
never had breathing issues and any numbness or tingling
I am an athletic trainer and when the dizziness started the second time i had a football player with a potential broken neck that I had to spine board and call 911. I woke up the next morning feeling dizzy. I sleep through the night and get about 9 hours a night. I wake up feeling unrefreshed however. Personal life, money, and family are all good. I have not had any weight loss or weight gain. This is my first job since i graduated college and my first bout of dizziness started the night before my first day of work. I also woke up that morning feeling sick and nervous.
i feel better once i get to work and feel the best right before bed.
5 months...the exact amount of time the dizziness started
i have never taken medication of any kind nor do i have any family history of any serious medical conditions. hbp and high cholesterol run in the family and i know both of my parents deal with stress issues
i just do not want to be imcompetent
i hate making mistakes and my supervisor is quick to jump all over me
basically i dread being scolded for something that I had no knowledge about.
i do not want to misdiagnose injuries either when dealing with kids. I know i do not have x-ray vision and can't be 100 percent sure something is not broken but i still feel bad if i tell them it is a bad sprain and it turns out to be a fracture
i got my degree in athletic training. i work for an orthopedic company. i answer directly to the school's head athletic trainer and athletic director
i cover all sports at that level
its not so much the orthopedist. its the other athletic trainer and athletic director for the high school.
about 3 years older than me
graduated from the same institution
hopefully at a high school near my hometown
im about 3 hours from where i grew up
no i havent
Yes. stress has always been an issue, but usually it is short term stress. This has been a much longer process and is a constant day in and day out ordeal
it makes sense that my symptoms would only get worse with time and not better. As i started putting fears out of my mind earlier in the year my lightheadedness took a short 3 week hiatus for me and i felt pretty good.
i cant really place it
well like i said this bout of dizziness isn't as bad as the original. it went away for a while as well
so i dont think it is getting worse...just not really subsiding for good
I will definitely address those issues next week with my Dr. Thank you for your help
