  1. Hi everyone. So I've been having dizzy spells for a while now, but they feel worse these days. I remember about 10 years ago, I would get so dizzy and would feel like I was going to pass out. It went away (I think it was caused by anxiety) but now it's back. And now today I blew my nose and had a little bit of blood in my mucus. I might be working myself up and that's why I'm getting dizzy. I also think my nose is really dry from the weather. I just want reassurance. I hope these symptoms don't go hand in hand and are a sign of something worse.
  2. It could be a lymph node! They’re about the side of a pea and run along your whole body. When you’re sick, they tend to swell a bit. Sometimes they can swell for any sort of reason. Nothing to worry about. (Mine swell often for no reason.) if you look up “lymph node”, google will show you where they are placed on your head (it’s where your neck and head meet. There is one on each side of the head.)
  3. Hi Jack! I have been in your shoes before and would not even attempt to get my license. I would have a panic attack every time I had to drive. I ended up getting my license and started driving on backroads. I went to places close to home and made sure I was driving at a time of day where not many people were on the road. I would often drive to places where I can get rewarded once I made it (Often Starbucks.) I would also listen to music which made driving really fun and enjoyable. I ended up having to drive around for my job I would soon get a month after I got my license. So I would drive A LOT. Driving now actually calms my anxiety and makes me feel happy. As for parking, try to park far away, where no cars are. If you have to park near any cars, just take your time! Slowly pulling into a spot will help you insure that you won’t hit into any car. I hope this helps! Just remember, make it fun! Driving is such amazing technology that helps us get to places we would otherwise have to walk to!
  4. That would make sense since I do have my period and the temperature did drop today. Thanks for your help!
  5. I’ve been feeling dizzy lately (I think it’s a symptom of anxiety since every time I get anxious, a dizzy spell comes with.) does anyone else get dizzy with anxiety and how do you stop it?
  6. So maybe about 5 years ago, I felt this pea sized bump on the back of my neck. It really scared me so I went to my doctor and he told me it was a lymph node swollen but he wasn’t worried about it. So I ignored it but I just started feeling it again this past week. I know I shouldn’t worry about it since I’ve had it for so long, but is there anyone out there who has swollen lymph nodes too? And what can you do to make the swelling go down?
  7. That’s how I get before I get sick. But there are definitely ways to stop it. Whenever I feel like that, I take sambucol, which is a natural, over the counter medication that cures all those symptoms in less than 24 hours. Try airborne or anything to stop it before it starts. It could also just be in your head. When people are sick around me, I tend to make myself feel sick when I’m actually not. It wouldn’t hurt to take extra vitamin c!
