I'm a 18 years old male and have suffered from the symptoms for like 4 months now. Everyday is a pain in the ass. When I wake up, I feel extremely tired even though I slept for 9 hours, it still feels like I've slept for few hours. When I wake up, I feel kind of okay, but when I drive to school, I feel dizzy. (I'm driving on a bike) and when I'm at school, it just gets worse. I can't focus on anything and it feels like I can't breathe and I get pain in my chest. When I get home again, it gets better again, but if I try focusing, it gets worse again.
Every time I get an anxiety attack, I always get extremely negative thoughts like "I've brain cancer and in few weeks I'll die" and stuff like that.
I've been to Lung Doctor and everything is fine. I've been to a cardiologist and everything is fine.
In this summer (2014), I took some medicine named Lyrica. I took it for like 2 weeks, then I had to drop it again, because of all the side effects. It did help a bit, but nothing special.
Nearly every week, I go visit a psychologist, and she told me that maybe I should try some of the other medicine, so I'm going to talk to my doctor about some anxiety and anti-depressive medicine.
