I'm a 45 yo female who got hit in the head at age 13. Lost conscious & I was never seen by dr. Is there a non-evasive procedure to see if I need help?

Don't you believe it: What makes you doubt that it's anxiety? If the doctor examined you and/or did tests and found no problems w/ your physical condition - that's good. If there are no circulation issues or congestion in your ears, sinuses, etc. Anxiety is a usual suspect. Learning proper breathing patterns - avoid shallow breathing by FULL (blow out) exhales and complete inhales may help. Consider CBT therapy - best! ...Read more
