Anxiety or seriously ill?!!

Posted , 4 users are following.

A few days ago I felt absolutely fine until I was walking out of work and felt a bit dizzy and lightheaded for a few seconds almost like the floor under me went wavy ,I just put it down to the fact I had not eaten or had a drink all morning at work.but since then I have worried none stop that it was something bad like a brain tumour,I now have had for 7 days a tense headache like a band around my head and my forehead,even my eyes feel

Sore,top of my back and I'm constantly on edge and feel shaky almost like a floaty head sensation.and my neck at the back feels tense.ive had anxiety before and any tests I've had come back clear and my anxiety goes.does this sound normal for an health anxious person?i can't think straight for worrying and keep thinking I want to go to a&e department

    This sounds like a possible inner ear infection, so you should go see your doctor.  An inner ear infection affects the vestibular nerve within the ear canal, and affects balance, cause anxiety, and headache.  I've had an inner ear infection, and it also made my neck muscles tight. 

    See your doc and get a proper diagnosis.

    That happens to me too and for the feeling of the floor moving under u that's a symptom of anxiety but it's also could be inner ear... Hold your breath and pinch your nose and breath out till your ears pop! Do it a few times every day it helped me after like 2 days of doing that. And every once in a while it comes back and I do that and it stops

    Everything you've described is classic anxiety symptoms and I've had all of them. Mine all started with a moment of feeling dizzy also and then I started worrying and it all went downhill from there. It snowballs, all the worrying leads to more symptoms.
