Customer Question

I feel like im dying again. Yesterday at work i got dizzy randomly and it scared me. Tonight ive jut been feeling weak, lightheaded,little dizzy, spaces out, i feel like im dreaming sometimes but its not fun. My eyes are tight feeling and a little stingy. I feel very on edge and like i can have a panic attack any minute. Random pains in my arms or hands. I cant stop thinking its a brain tumor or something. Ive been stressed the last few days and today but im still afraid..

Dr. Singh :


Dr. Singh :

The symptoms of dizziness, lightheadedness, strange eye sensations, etc can all be related to anxiety/panic disorder. Other causes include stress, dehydration, thyroid disorder, vitamin deficiency, anemia, abnormal heart rhythm. I recommend that if not already done, you see your doctor for basic blood work such as CBC, CMP, TSH, Vitamin B12, B6 levels as well as an EKG and physical exam. This does not sound like a tumor, so I would not worry too much about that as a cause. But I do recommend that you see your doctor regarding this symptoms.

Customer: My anxiety is driving me craZY
Dr. Singh :

Have you seen your doctor for it? Any medications/ therapy??

Customer: Im on xoloft
Customer: Im on zoloft and zanax
Dr. Singh :

What dose?

Customer: 100 mg zoloft a day and .5 xanax a night
Dr. Singh :

You may benefit from increasing dose of Zoloft and Xanax since at this dose your anxiety is not well controlled. I recommend you see your prescribing physician regarding this.

Customer: I always think the worst
Dr. Singh :

I understand. Working with a therapist about this will be beneficial.

Customer: So you dont think ita anything deadly right most likey anxiety
Dr. Singh :

Correct. I don't think your symptoms are indicative of a life threatening disease.

Customer: I also have had aching in my left rib cage for a few weeks. Aches when i cough or laugh, or when i press in that area of my chest. Im not sure if i did something to it while working or if its lung cancer
Dr. Singh :

The ache is likely an inflammation of the rib cage from exercise, etc. You can take ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hours as needed.
