Hi hubpages, I just wanna know if someone here is a psyschiatrist, a doctor, or a person who experienced this same situation.
About 1 week ago, this thing happened, I felt stangely ill that it think that I will fall to the ground, I also had this dizziness feeling, and mild muscle weakness (especially on the left side of the face, arms, and legs), I also feel heavy when I lay down. I am worried that was a sign of a stroke, to the point that it actually drives me crazy. A day after that, I gone to the hospital and I was diagnosed with Typhoid fever but I don't want to spend my christmas admitted on a hospital, so I asked the doctor if she can give home treatment, she said "yes". She also gaved me chloramphenicol (4x a day) and paracetamol (once every six hours) as my medicine, and I was also told to return on Jan 6. I followed her advice and went home. December 29, that medicine she gave has gone out, and actually it lessened my illness but frequent unknown illness strikes me. I had done some research and I asumed this situation and dubbed it as Anxiety Attacks, I also followed some relaxation techniques and how to deal with it.
On Jan 1, New Year's day, the same episode happened that had happened about 1 week ago, I have a feeling that I was about to die from a stroke attack, and I decided to be admitted on a hospital. I am confined for about three days, given treatment with ciprofloxacin injectable, and ibruprofen as pain killer for my occasional headaches. Now, I had gone out on that hospital but I still experience and worried about this unexplained illness. You know, I am very radical person, I wanted myself to believ that this was an affect for an Anxiety Attack, but still I experience this attack almost daily. My left side of my face, left arm, and legs feel weak, but they are actually not (I tested it by lifting something heavy), I have no trouble walking, and also I had no trouble talking. But I do have the difficulty of controlling myself from trembling and thinking worst-case scenarios.
I had occasional blood pressure rises from 110/70 to 140/90. My question is, what disease am I in? How much can I do about it? Is this really anxiety attacks? or something scary, please be frank as possible. and also sorry for my bad English, I am having thinking words right now, I am not a native english speaker.
Hi Joween18. In the name of Jesus, may the God of peace give you His peace and heal you of any and all physical and psychological illnesses.
Panic attacks can cause you to experience physical symptoms such as those you describe, yet you also clearly have been having health issues, which I'm glad you sought treatment for. I'd encourage you to have a doctor rule out any continued medical problems. The health issues themselves can cause anxiety, and any anxiety can exasperate physical symptoms and problems, so it really is a cyclical relationship. Relax, rule out with the help of doctors, and may God go with you!
Joween, safe and accurate medical diagnoses cannot be made by asking random people on the Internet.
Whatever is happening to you, you need to go see a doctor in person.
Have your doctor refer you to an appropriate specialist.
I had panic disorder about 20 years ago. Some of your symptoms sound familiar; others do not. I recommend you find a psychologist who knows how to treat panic disorder. I was able to get over panic disorder with cognitive behavioral therapy. The therapy was supervised by a psychologist.
You are are utilizing imagination to the negative. Reality check yourself by meditating on God. Read the bible. You need relief. Jesus will help you. Have faith and may the Force of Mighty Triple O be with you.

I had panic attacks years ago and wonder if this would be a good place to share your story and share answers you have found.
