I am new here and joined mostly looking for support and answers. I was diagnosed with panic disorder when I was 19, I am now 38, so I have had almost 20 years with this issue. I have always had dizziness and a wobbly when I get anxious, however the past two months my dizziness has gotten so bad that it is affecting my work. Lately I cannot stand and talk to someone or stand in line at a store, or in today's case, waiting for a flu shot, without feeling unsteady, dizzy, and as if my legs will not support me. I have had to sit down mid conversation with people. I have been to my doctor and she does think I have some vertigo but mostly thinks it is my anxiety. I know that my anxiety is bad but I have never had an issue with talking to people, especially co-workers who don't make me nervous. However, now I can't stand and talk. More and more, my days are a struggle because of this dizziness I am getting and the frustration and anxiety that follows. If it is just my anxiety, I guess I have to deal with that, but I feel like there could be another explanation. I feel bad if I keep pestering my doc, but this is really beginning to be debilitating.
