Dizziness when walking in stores

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone, I have concerns regarding my health. Doctor is unable to find the problem. I have prescription for muscles inflammation, exercises but none seems to work. The problem is, I can feel great at home, sometimes a little light headache but not much . Never feel dizzy at home but once I step outside, I feel dizzy especially when I walk in a store. Anyone here has an idea what can cause that and anything to cure it? Please reply and thank you all  for reading my post.

    The overhead lighting in stores and walking between shopping lanes and turning into them all combine to make dizziness worse but should not be avoided as you need to challenge your brain to compensate.

    I have been having this issue for over a year. I am on anxiety meds however it doesn’t seem to help. I’m not even sure if it’s anxiety that I’m experiencing. I will feel fine and out of nowhere start getting hot and sweaty, my eyes seem to start seeing spots and I feel like I’m going to pass out from being dizzy. I have been checked for vertigo, eye issues, heating issues, blood pressure etc and still have no idea what is happening. I even had an MRI done. It’s so frustrating as I am just recovering from breast cancer and still struggling with dizziness. I could just cry.
