Do you feel this thru the body

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm having a crappy attack I guess. I'm curious when you have the moving feeling do you feel it thru your entire body? I feel it in my legs, when siting in my butt, feels like I'm laying on a float in the pool, also when standing feel like I'm falling or leaning to one side or falling, that's how I'm feeling tonight to, with anxiety, tight muscles, head aches, nausea earlier, feels like I'm dropping with sitting. I don't know the little bit of Coke I drank earlier did it, or if going shopping. Does anyone feel this thru their body ? This is enough to send someone over the edge. You get a day or two if feeling ok then bam back to whacked out

    When I move a lot and then sit down in a kitchen chair to eat, for example, I feel like I'm still moving. It's a rocking/nausea type of moving.

      That's how I feel. Sometime I just want to get up from dinner and go away and cry, everyone else is enjoying their food but I'm just trying to stay still and eat without being sick and anxious. I hate these bad days cause you can't remember the good days and it consumes your thoughts when you feel like your falling and moving all over.

      I'm not any daily meds, I tried Amitriotyline had a bad reaction, have tried anti depressants for other things years ago and had a bad time with all of them. The only thing I have is Xanax which I'm thinking about taking. Seems when this starts and the stupid fear I have from the dizzy crap the anxiety sets in and things are just bad fur hours sometimes days

      I'm post meno it's been 4 hrs this year.

      My ENT and osychologist have both said anxiety can be from dizziness, but I think mine is worse because of worrying when I feel the dizziness, off bajance or falling dropping sensations

      ENT said MAV and a bit of mdds. Honestly I don't know how they figure any of it out, since most of the symptoms could be any inner ear disorder. I also am hypothyroid for 16 hrs now and levels were off for months when this started but finally getting better. If I didn't have all these symptoms of dizziness and off balance I would feel better. I also have generalize anxiety disorder. But I wonder about the menopaus because been having lots of hot flashes lately which come with dizziness and having more chills that fone before the hot flashes. I'm a wreck and all of it is making my anxiety worse. All these changing symptoms with the dizziness is making me crazy, started with rocking/swaying for months, neck pain and headaches, then floor bouncing and moving, falling sensations, leaning sensation when suiting and standing, dizzy when walking and sitting, swinging feeling, floating feeling, the list is just to long, I hate how the dizziness changes so then I get worried it's something new ir some new problem. It's just all nuts

      Without medicine you're going to continue feeling bad. Surely, there are other medicines for migraines. I suspect some of it is hormonal as well. Maybe check with your gyne and see if there's something your symptoms.. Best of luck to you.

      My dizziness and anxiety seem to feed off of each other.  When I feel like I am rocking or bouncing, or get the feeling like I am falling, I get anxioius. Whenever I get anxious, my dizziness gets much worse, which of course makes me more anxious.  It is just a vicious cycle.

    Hi Patty, Yes panic and anxiety can absolutely come with it. All you need to do is watch a day of balance clinic to see how much anxiety is caused by dizziness and imbalance. I have taken Zoloft for years and this has calmed my dizziness and anxiety. I used to feel like my throat was closing all the time. It was horrific. I was only 22 when it began so wasn't hormonal. I likened the feeling to being dumped by a wave and not knowing which way to swim. Up or down?? It is terrifying!!!! Funny that you mentioned Coke because I found when I ate or drank caffeine, that my anxiety would increase. A few years ago they found out that there is a gene that is affected by caffeine - causing anxiety (and I imagine a worsening of dizzy symptoms.) Shopping was awful because of the added dizziness from looking at so many items. I learnt to move my head and eyes slowly when shopping but nothing was as helpful as Zoloft. I took a quarter of a tablet and slowly built up the amount because I was scared of medication. I had a horrible tummy for 2-3 weeks but it soon stopped and changed my life. It's not the total answer but anything that is of significant help, is worth trying. I hope it does for you too. A psychiatrist who specialises in panic disorder, would be the best one to see to find out what medication is best for your specific circumstance. Even a second opinion from an ENT that specialises in balance disorder, might be of some help. Have you tried Stemetil and Serc? They are the medications most of my clients with dizziness, have been prescribed - but again, a specialist is the only one that would really know what's best for you. I hope you get some helpful answers quickly. xxx

      Thank you somuch for the reply.  I saw that you are an audiologist, so you are knowledgable in MAV and maybe MDDS?  I am seeing a top neurotologist he specializes in dizziness.  I had BPPV about 6 years ago and it was treated and gone until this started a year ago, i knew when it happened it was different from BPPV.  So I saw my GP who thougth it was BPPV again but treatment did nothing, at this time I was having awaful neck and head pain just as I did 6 years ago, and both times having this I went back to my neurologist and had steriod trigger injections in the trigger points and the second time i had this done the panic attacks started again so I thought it was my thyroid being off again, but in looking back at my records by my endocrinologist from now to what was happening and 6 years ago he found that I was having the exact same symptoms, the neck and head pain, the thyroid going out of whack, I was seeing a psychologist also for anxiety and panic, of course the endo didn't know about the steriod injections eithe time and this time he asked me exactly what all I had done to and any meds or treatments i had and when I told him about the injections, he just looked up at me and said did you have those 6 years ago and I said yes, he said well there is the annswer as to the panic and thyroid going all crazy, I said what, he said its a steriod it will mess your entire system up.  He asked how many i had and i told him 4 he asked what the sateriod was, but i didn't know, so he contacted the neurologist who didn't send him the info for about 2 months.  But when the panic attacks started again after the injections I went back to the neuro and he said oh just take kolonipin and the anxiety will stop, but like the endo told me, he said the neuro should have told you this could throw everything out of whack and mess up your thyroid, so needless to say I won't be going back to the neuorologist.  

      But y ENT specialist says that testing for MAV there really is not a definite test but he said when I took the amitriptyline for the 6 days and the dizziness subsided as did the head and neck pain, but i had a bad reaction and my vision went crazy so he stopped the med, but he said since things were better on it that is the test that confirms the MAV, he also said i have some MDDS.  All my hearing tests were great but the VNG I couldn't finish, as soon as they put the air in my right ear, I felt like I was falling and they stopped the test, so I guess we will never know, but from what I;ve read the VNG wil cause dizziness and if you don't get dizzy then that means something is wrong.  So I'm at this point after a year of this, the VRT is helping, but there are these awful days where I feel like i'm falling and dipping and sinking.  When it all started it was the rocking/swaying feel, but i notice it changes sensation and i think thats what causes most of my anxiety is the fear its something much worse and they are just missing it.

      If you wouldn't mind explaining how MAV should feel and why it changes the way it does.  I would greatly appreciate it.  

      I'm so glad the zoloft worked for you,  I wish i wasn't so afraid of meds, but every time i take one I have some bad thing happen.

      Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Hi Patty, I work with hearing devices. Balance clients see a specialist audiologist so I rarely come across MAV or MDDS. I will ask her your questions though and get back to you.
