Dizzy all the time,even when not having a panic attack

Posted , 7 users are following.

So I have written on here a couple of time this past week about my dizziness and lightheaded was which I know is a common symptom of anxiety and panic attacks but why do I get dizzy even when I'm not in the middle of a attack,like just dizzy for no reason,obviously I had every test done and they all came back clear but out of all the years I have dealt with this anxiety I have never experienced dizziness that lasts almost all day,and that out of it feeling,I'm not even comfortable driving anymore,anyone else deal with this

    I have this too. Once I managed to stop it. Dizzness can persist some time even if you don't feel anxious. Once you lower anxiety for a longer period of time.... Dizziness will fall, but quite some time afterwards.

    Still, ask your doctor about it and what you can do. Ask what else can you do. Keep testing if doctors thing it is needed, not to seek for problem, but to make you feel better and to be sure smile

    Good luck !

    Hello. I literally posted in here today about the same problem. I'm not convinced it's down to my anxiety but that's because I have anxiety? But anyway I'm having the same thing, just randomly getting dizzy and having to lay down in order for it to ease up or pass and although mine doesn't last all day it can last for up to an hour and it starts for no reason too. Maybe it is our anxiety then ?

      I certainly agree with you on that. It just occured to me that the dizziness often responds to drinking a glass of water. When I got dizzy at the hospital I noticed how dry my mouth was, and looked for a water fountain, which I couldn't find. I drove home carefully. First thing was a glass of water...the dizziness was totally gone immediately. See if this works for you, Shannon.
