Dizzy from the moment I wake till the moment I sleep.

Posted , 7 users are following.

I am fed up with this. I am trying to work and I have severe dizziness, phantom pains in my chest, head, stomach and breathing problems from the minute I wake up till the next moment I go to sleep. Every single day. Should symptoms like this last that long???

    When your always anxious you get dizzy. I dont know why they go together. Its extremly annoying. Headaches too many times. You can try adding fresh ginger, or the ginger from the resturants to rice and eat it. The ginfer helps a bit. Tastes tart but it is heloful.

      Yeah, it's just so hard. I feel constantly unwell or sore somewhere on my body. Panic attacks have started again. I decided to walk to meet  my sister the other day, instead of taking the car then all of a sudden, I had blurred vision, felt dizzy and my legs started to give way. She had to come and pick me up. I had to sit down and try and breathe because my heart was pumping so hard in my chest, making it sore. Could have sworn I was having a heart attack! sad

    Don't worry man. I'm experiencing the same symptoms as you. I think mine have gone a step further and gave me a sore throst for two eeeks. Now starting today, I got a pinched nerve feeling in the lower part of my neck near the collarbone. It sometimes gives me pain to my arm and the spot itself. I also have other symptoms like a cramp feeling in my right foot. I don't know how serious that is but it started after I walked to the Apotheke. I also have auras in the morning in my eye so that always trues to freak me out. I'm still standing strong. You should too. When it started to get you down, always remember and tell yourself that you're just oerreacting again and that you're fine.

      I'm the exact same way with the dizziness constantly and honestly haven't seen to many other people on here that have that symptom which obviously made my anxiety worse I had blood work done twice with all coming back ok and the dr said it was anxiety but I never really could believe that until honestly right now that I'm reading your msg, it's big weight lifted off me seeing other people suffering that on a regular basis, I've been on Celexa for almost three weeks with very little progress and Third day being prescribed Buspar and that helped up until this am but now at 3pm the dizzy feeling has passed and just have a headache now, the hardest part for me to accept is that anxiety could cause that symptom even when I don't feel like my anxiety level isnt that high at the moment meaning I feel pretty relaxed and still get dizzy feeling. It's so hard to accept and believe that something like anxiety could cause so much negative physical symptoms, Keep me updated how you are if you wouldn't mind please and thanks

      Hey Cody,

      I've had so many symptoms and it all relates back to anxiety. From tingling in my fingers, toes, arma and legs to dizziness, heart pounding and literally my legs giving way. It's awful. I have suffered for about 6 years and been on so many different medications and feel like nothing is working. Honestly starting to feel like it's up to me to try and make things right - eat well, exercise, meditation, calming techniques etc.

      I am happy in  my life right now but the anxiety (that comes out of nowhere at any given time - even when I'm enjoying myself) is getting out of hand and really getting me down. I don't really know what it's like to feel. Something is always wrong!

      Yea I understand where your coming from albeit just a little since I've only been suffering for around a month and a half now, it most certainly came out of nowhere, I've had panic attacks prior but they last for no more than 5 mins each and then I went about my day, even at the worst I was getting one every cpl months then it all hit me extremely hard and for no apparent reason as my life was actually taking a turn for the better at that time, my dr wouldn't give me a ct or mri as he said it wasn't necessary I only showed symptoms of anxiety and I think a scan would prolly fix my problem or atleast stop the dizziness full time and honestly I could live with everything else except the dizzy feeling and headache the Buspar does seem to be working and possibly the Celexa starting to take ahold finally but still no where near normal but I do get a cpl hours free of the dizziness a day now but again the hardest part for me is to accept its anxiety fully as this is my first time dealing with it and I never usually go to the dr ordinarily so all of this is stressful hopefully we can get more normalcy even if it's just for most of the time and not all the time, I was just curious about your story because the symptoms matched so much with the dizziness literally every moment in awake up until three days ago, I guess accepting it really is the biggest hurdle as I have seen discussed on this forum for a while now

      Yeah, you need to accept that it is just anxiety and that you can fight against and will feel better. I need to try and keep telling myself that. I'm very happy in my life at the moment and it's at those times, my anxiety can be bad because I'm convinced something will go wrong.

      Are you still dizzy all the time or has it since subsided? Like I said that's the worse for me and that's the thing that freaks me out and turns everything upside down. I feel like if I can get over that hump the rest will follow suit, the Celexa has also made me lose weight which didn't help the confidence that it's just the anxiety lol

      I have gone through periods of dizziness, every day, all day for weeks on end. It's awful and exhausting. They put it down to Labrinthitis at first then realised it's menieres flared up by anxiety.

      Yea that's terrible, this is a type of torture that should be saved from criminals lol, I found myself asking how the hell did I deserve this a lot in the beginning but I think over time I'm coming to terms with it and just gotta get through it, I was an athlete all my life and mental toughness was ingrained in me for as long as I can remember which is why I think I have such a hard time accepting that I let something like this get in my head, and not only is it there but how bad it has gotten. Hopefully this is just a small paragraph in our story and the rest of the story will be as we wished it would be, they say the bad stuff makes you appreciate the good things more. Thanks for sharing your story with me, it's easier knowing other people are suffering in the same ways and that your not abnormal
