Hey. I’m very confused and don’t know what’s been going on. Around six months ago, I was doing very well in my life. A car accident happened and I was pretty okay. I stopped taking birth control and then boom. One day in class I had such a bad panic attack I had to leave school. And then it happened the next day as well. And at work. I ended up going to the mental hospital and ever since then, I’ve had severe anxiety, panic attacks, dizziness, vertigo, and much more. I thought ptsd but I never was really thinking about the accident when my anxiety was bad. Now my vision is strained and it’s hard for me to drive and go in stores. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what it is. I’ve tried medications and therapy. I’ve tried vitamins and exercise. I’ve tried it all. When will this end? Whatever this is. Could it be due to my birth control? Is it something physical? Plz help
Anxiety (Including GAD)
It could be a lot of things. CPTSD, sudden withdrawal from stopping birth control or other medications, problems occurring due to the accident like a concussion or something else. Not easy to figure out, I relate to that and you are not alone. I was in a car accident where as a result I had a moderate concussion that still affects me today, probably for the rest of my life. It was really difficult to know if that was why changes in vision and anxiety happened after the concussion or if it was medications, ptsd from events or other psychological issues that happened naturally as I got older.
Sometimes detecting concussions is not easy and they can go unnoticed by medical professionals. Ptsd can also affect the subconscious and manifests differently for most people. It can be harder to notice for some and doesn’t necessarily connect directly to the actual event you went through, but instead be associated with the emotions you felt when it happened or recently after.
thank you so much. This helped a lot
