How is it possible I'm still dizzy

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ok guys just looking for some feedback,I have literally been dizzy or lightheaded for 2 months now non stop,hard for me to drive or go out or do anything I used to do,I know it's a symptom of anxiety and I have had it before but just during the initial attack,,and one day 2 months ago out of the blue I got dizzy and it never went away.i just recently tried klonipion and that seems to take it away for a little while but it always returns,obviously I had every test under the sun done so there's nothing medically wrong with me I just can't bring myself to believe that anxiety disorder can make you feel like this for so long without a break

    Hi

    I'm sorry your having this. I read you said you where checked for vertigo, what type of Doctor did you see? I ask because about 14 months ago I got dizzy and it's been with me sense. It's everyday, the difference is the way it feels, I feel like I'm rocking/swaying, falling sensations, leaning sensations, bobbing like I'm sitting on a ballon, and I can have these sensations when I'm sitting, standing and walking, I also feel like I'm walking on pillows like the floor is moving up and down, I also would get headaches and neck pain, they told me its migraine associated vertigo, it's actually a migraine that is silent or you can have a headache. The best doctor to see for dizziness is an neuro otologist it's a special ear nose and throat guy. I asked him if it could be my anxiety and he said it will cause anxiety but the anxiety dizziness feels different and is only during the anxiety and then it stops. So you might want to get checked to make sure it's not a different type of dizziness. Also with vertigo it's more of a p spinning feeling and with migraine associated vertigo there is no spinning. Sound strange to call it vertigo but that's what it's called, I hope you feel better soon
