    Hi Zigla how are doing today sounds to me like anxiety because this happened to me as well, your story is like readying my own. I have also went to many specialist and everything always turn up normal. But what did work for me was paxil it might work for you as well just give it time to work. If you do try it I would like to know how you make out.

      As soon as you start taking the medication it starts working but you will not notice the full benefit untill about 4 to 6 weeks. The only problem is side effects but every drug has them.

    I had the same thing some years ago, my doctor ordered a stress test, couldn't find anything wrong. I used to walk around holding on to walls, When I moved north, and got frequent colds, the same thing happened, turns out, it was my inner ear that was the problem which affected my equilibrium. I had a freind in the FBI that was given desk duty due to the same problem.

      It was inner ear infections, could be caused by a number of things, smoking, stress, allergies., I can't say it was the weather that was the cause because the first one happened in Florida, others in Michigan. Mine just ran it's course, the first time was scary, not knowing whats happening, thinking the worst. Maybe the fact that I quit smoking some years ago, and those ear infections stopped.

    I've always had anxiety but once after doing medical procedure the next day, I could t even walk I was so dizzy. So I called in sick, then I called in sick for a week then I got fired then they did a spinal tap, all clear. I told them I thought it was from the medication used during my procedure ...and no one agreed. It was about a month and it all went away. I should say it did get better with each passing day.

    Hang in there, it will go away. People had quality and quantity of life before doctors.

    sometimes going does more harm than good. I hope all your tests come back that you are healthy!

    amxiety is just natures way of saying something is not going so well in the stress department of your life but ehh gads...life can be so stressful.

    I know I was really celebrating when I noticed it leaving...mine was so bad they thought I had a stroke...one side of my body didn't function well with the other.

    if I had to live that way I don't know what I'd do....so glad to hear you are on your way back from it!!!!

    i wish you more good health

    Yes, having to hold on to the walls to walk...not a good thing. I seriously thought it would be a permenate state. All is well that ends well. !

    glad you are better...
