I recently experienced a very strange sensation. I was seated quietly at my computer when I began to feel a little dizzy, having this sensation I looked away from the computer and the feeling went away. I then began to get up and I had a rush of a warm sensation engulf me, as I began to take steps forward my heart began to race, I later developed a metallic taste in my mouth, I can't think of anyway to describe it besides this. I truly thought I was going to die, it was such a frightening experience, it really shook me up. I am currently in the process of buying a new home, a new marriage 6 months, and we are expecting our first baby. I am wondering if this could all have been from stress, and anxiety. I am just curious and would like some feed back, Dr. please tell me what this could have been! Please Help!

I had the exact thing happen to me it's a panic attack. I went to the doctor and was put on fluxotine. If it persists u should consult your doctor. The best thing is to remind yourself it's only a panic attack and try to calm down. I stopped playing games so much. Also no caffien or chocolate. Best wishes to u.

i've recently experienced something similar to this. i was genuinely scared when it happened because i have never experienced it before. i had the same symptoms as you but i also had what i can only describe as a sensation of waves going through my body, which made me think i was going to collapse. did you feel this too?
The weird thing was, i wasn't feeling anxious when this happened, which made me doubt it was an anxiety attack.

A metallic taste is often related to silver fillings which are mostly made out of mercury, I am presently recovering from a metallic taste, had to have my fillings changed. It was terrible.

I have had constant dizziness and metallic taste in my mouth for over three months now. i under went a tramatic experience (potential exposure to HIV/ STD); God forbid I was found negative, bu the whole time I thought I contracted HIV. This experience has caused this, according to my Dr. He put me on Celexa, but just made me dizzer so I've stopped it. Oh well....I just hope I can get me normal taste, and balance back some day.....

Does anyone know how long this type of reaction to stress lasts?
