Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

Your details points towards "syncopal attacks" which you are experiencing. These episodes could be related to stress/anxiety, but there are various other reasons responsible for these like cardiac pathology, low blood pressure etc. It occurs due to hypoperfusion of brain.
These episodes should be differentiated from seizures also.
I advise you to consult a general physician/neurologist for detailed evaluation and management.
Hope it helps
Good luck

Hi there ~

Thank you for sharing your concern. It is a very common problem and is called performance anxiety and in your case it has gone to the extent where your physical functioning is being affected. One way to get some relief with your problem is to approach a therapist or a counselor who is good with exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP). I am suggesting this due to your wanting to go without medications. I would also suggest that you visit with a psychiatrist since medications can help give you that edge to pull you up with some self confidence and face up with the situation that you most fear.

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