I'm a 16 year old female and last month I had really dizzy spells that didn't stop for like a full week, I felt like I couldn't walk due to lack of balance and I was in bed most of the time. I even had a panic attack because I genuinely thought I was going to faint. So I went to the doctors and they did some blood tests and they said I was fine. Then I started school three weeks ago and randomly in class I started feeling dizzy and it's not as bad as it was a month ago but it's still pretty horrible and sometimes I panic a little, I get pretty uncomfortable and it's hard for me to concentrate on anything else, I just sit there hoping for class to be over as soon as possible.
Yesterday it escalated to a full panic attack and I was shaking and I had to leave the classroom, but as soon as I got out I felt alright. This dizziness/lightheadedness appears totally out of the blue, I could not even be thinking of it and there, I feel dizzy. And this could happen one day but the next I could be totally fine. But this morning I woke up feeling a bit dizzy but I wasn't panicking at all. Although I just came back from a walk on the beach with my mum and as we were walking I started to feel dizzy and faint.
It feels like I'm lightheaded and my knees are going to cave in along with a slight headache at times but my vision never blurs or anything, I just see a few eye floaters. Sometimes it's accompanied but a slight headache. And I've never actually passed out from it. This is the first time this has ever happened, I drink loads of water and I think I eat pretty well. I have no idea what it is of what to do, and it's interfering with my life, I didn't go to school today because of it. Please help, thank you.
