Feeling off balance.. Wierd head sensations and spinning and falling feeling...

Posted , 7 users are following.

I got a complete checkup 2 months ago with a full bloodwork and EKG and saw a couple doctors and they said I have anxiety.. My symptoms were..

Head pressure

Brain fog and Lightheadedmess

Racing heart and palpitations


Severe muscle tension

Recently I've begin to feel off balance when walking and vertigo like symptoms.. Like my head feels like it's spinning or when I lay down I feel like I'm falling... It comes and goes but now it's starting to happen a lot more.

I've seen thru research these are common anxiety symptoms.. But what can you do to prevent this? I already do a lot of meditation and breathing exercises..

    Hi heat we have talked a lot before and I told you I get the same symptoms.... Lots of head pressure especially on top of my head and forhead and sometimes I feel like the floor is swaying.... When that happens I hold my nose and my breath and try to blow out till my ears pop a few times and it totally works for the off balance feeling.... Someone on here actually told me to do that. And I have an apt to get an mri to make sure the head pressure is nothing but they think it's anxiety

      It's hard to explain the wierd head sensations.. I'm not even sure if it's vertigo or spinning.. But swayying like you said makes more sense but it on and off. So how has the therapy and acupuncture gone so far if you've done it yet?

      I haven't done acupuncture yet but therapy is good makes me feel better! And yeah it happens to me on and off... Like if I'm just standing still and then I take a step it will feel kinda like the floor moved under me but doing that Definitly helps a lot

      Ook I'm happy to hear therapy has helped you. I'm going to have to do acupuncture soon for this muscle tension in my head and neck and shoulders.. But I feel the same way.. When I'm walking or standing still I feel like my head is sort of swirling but it's not.. I try not to thing about it and that helps.. The off balance feeling sucks. How about the chiropractor did they ever say anything? Im thinking I might have to see one because I've heard spine or shoulder / neck issues can cause anxiety brain fog and vertigo like symptoms

      Heat, remember magnesium spray for muscle tightness, cramps, etc. It is topical, so no matter where it is sprayed on the skin, it is in your bloodstream rapidly. Spray on a few times, rub it in good, and relief. Wash hands so you don't get any in your eyes...I tend to rub mine.

      I don't know what I would do without this stuff. I would never take a mag. supplement without doctor's order...but this is fine.
