I feel as if I am going around in circles and although I was diagnosed with Vestibular Neuronitis in 2009, I am no longer certain if it's this condition thats making me anxious and light headed or it's the anxiety making me lightheaded.
Before 2009 I was very active in business and socially. I led meetings and would mingle with no problems at all. Yes I had all the usual stresses that comes with working, being married, kids, money (or lack off sometimes) but nothing that would bother me.
Since 2009 and since being diagnosed with VN, this constant lightheadedness has given me social phobia, I developed a driving phobia which in fairness is a lot better than what it was. I go out more and drive more, but nowhere near like I used to.
I seem to be struggling with stupid things, like I can't seem to tolerate queues, I hate queuing to pay for petrol, or for shopping. Anxiety seems to kick in and then I feel light headed and feel myself swaying and I just got to get out of there.
If I go into a large store a shopping mall I feel vile, feel anxious and want to leave.
Now I don't really know why, I don't even know if this is proper anxiety or just a side effect of having Vestibular Neuronits. All I know is that after 5 years I still don't feel normal.
Another thing, when I am stood at a counter to say pay a cashier for fuel, I sort of feel gravity pulling me downwards and I feel kind've heavy on my feet, if you know what I mean?...It's weird !!
Does anyone get me?
