History of anxiety. Increased heartbeat, shaking, heavy headedness, dizziness. Will this go away?

I recently was at work on a humid day and I felt ok working hard lifting products. I went to my office and sat down as I felt a lite strange like I was walking sideways. I have a history of anxiety so just thought I was feeling unbalanced. I sat down then my heart started racing and I felt the blood rush from my head I laid down and was shaking. They told me it was the heat. I was panicking so had like a heat stroke and anxiety together. Since then a week ago I feel really heavy headed dizzy and pressured in my head but no real headaches . Will this go away I worry it s something bad.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your current symptoms appear to be anxiety-related. Remember that anxiety can manifest itself with not only psychological symptoms, but with physical symptoms also. I don't think you should worry much about this. You can try relaxation techniques like deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, yoga, etc. to tackle your problems. However, if you are having recurrent such symptoms or having difficulty managing your anxiety, then I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
