So 5 Months ago I had a migraine at work. Since then it has been dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, anxiety (and everything anxiety brings along), panic attacks etc etc. The only thing that seemed to help was benzos which my doctor told me he would only write me one script for as they are addictive and they really only helped me cope with it, not the symptoms of it.
After browsing the internet for months I had found a number of conditions that can cause this. Some of them include (and might relate to you)
Wisdom Teeth damage, Improper Jaw alignment (TMJ), grinding of teeth due to stress or sleeping habits, microscopic differences in eye level, Several different forms of invertigo, Severe anxiety and plenty of others.
I also had blood tests, MRI scan, Vision tests administered by my doctor.
One clue I had was that when i wore my reading glasses and just focused on things up close (my computer screen, a book etc) I felt a lot steadier.
So I went to the optometrist today and turns out I have Astigmatism which can cause blurred vision, headaches and migraines. The migraine happened while i was at work on the computer doing very eye stressing work (should have being wearing my glasses, I know that now..) and likely triggered the anxiety and panic attacks (I'm a bit of a hypochondriac).
So I've been wearing my glasses all day today and I'm awaiting a pair that I'll be able to wear 24/7 (my reading glasses don't do me any justice at long distance). Maybe I'm just being optimistic because I'm having a good day today and feel almost normal but I'd like to think after 5 months I've finally figured it out.
