Dizziness, heart racing, throat dry, tingling in face, back, neck. Symptoms of anxiety?

I spent 14 hours in county emergency room yesterday just to diagnose me with anxiety . I got dizzy, like I was going to pass out. My heart was racing 120-130s. My mouth and throat were extremely dry. My face and back of my neck were tingling and my body felt extremely relaxed or lethargic almost. Could this have been anxiety. I wasn t anxious at all.

Hi there ~

There may be more to your problem than anxiety. I am sure they ran all the labs on you and found nothing and you were given the diagnosis of anxiety. If your labs and imaging were normal, you probably had an anxiety attack or a panic attack which can in many times simulate a heart attack or a brain attack. I think you should practice relaxation exercises and maybe even yoga and pranayama. This should helps with the acute anxiety. Medication prescribed by a psychiatrist are certain to help in the short term.

I hope this helped. Take care and have a lovely day !
