i have o idea whats wrong with him...if its still just anxiety or what?..

My husband just finished working a few months on 12/ hour nightshifts. He had to be let go earlier than the session was over because he was always getting dizzy

He was driving home from work and had to over the other day because he had shortness of breathe, then he was taken to emergency only for the Dr to tell him it was just an anxiety attack...He did suffer a colapesed lung in the past, but the Drs. confirmed that it was healed .The colpased lung was about a coupe years ago
Anyway, now hes been offwork for about 3 days and already he had to go back to he emergency because he was feeling dizzy everytime he would stand up..Now, he doesnt feel comfortable driving at all..He cant really sleep..
Im kind of worried because slept literally for a whole day the first day he was off work..i figured he had caught up on sleep ..but he just seems so out of it..

Symptoms: shortness of breath, dizzyness, no able to sleep..

  • He needs to switch doc's. These symptoms can be anything ranging from very high blood pressure, anemia, or something severe. Your husband is not getting enough oxegen to his brain for some reason. Find a doc that gives him a check list to check off all of his symptoms. I'm not trying to put our doctor down, it's just that ppl are walking out of doctors offices eathier misdianost due to the doc's not having that much time or concern for each and everybody...even i'm a victim.
