First let me tell you I have MAV (migraine associated vertigo) this causing dizziness with and without headaches, the dizziness can be different sensation like, swaying and rocking, falling feeling, floating feeling, leaning feeling, bouncing feeling. I've had this for 13 months. It also causes anxiety, neck pain, headaches and can have a silent migriane which is the dizziness instead of the pain, but most of us with it have dizziness all the time in some form. This morning while getting ready for work I was having the falling feeling while walking around and when I have these feeling I get stressed and angry, then my arms started to ache, my stomach felt weird like sick and I felt it in my chest and my breathing was ok but felt weird to me, so I started to drive to work and I guess the fear was buidling and I started to think about all the feelings I was having and the fear became worse, my skin got hot and tingling and I started to panic, I had to yell at myself to stop. I got to work and I took a xanax. Its been along time since I had a panic attack and I just needed to talk to someone, so here i am. I know this will be a stupid question, but did it sound like a panic attack to you? Its been so long i can remember to well.
Having this dizziness disorder doesn't help much, feeling like your off balance or falling or floating or rocking, it can be scary and cause anxiety and worry all the time.
I'm worried now maybe it wasn't just a panic attack and something worse.
thanks for listening.
