    Oh yes. I've had people come and sit down beside me and all of a sudden I get the urge to shout, Sit someone else! Keep praying and I hope you're seeking some therapy.

    Hi sally the symptoms you have today are typical symptoms of anxiety and panic. It's frightening, I'm having dizziness today, started taking propanolol for anxiety on Wednesday, felt a bit breathless today so called the pharmacy they advised me to stop taking the tablet, they said cause I hadent taken for long it was ok to just stop taking without reducing slowly. Was in hairdressers and took dizzy it's continued all day & making me feel sick. I'm going into menopause so don't know if it's that or anything to do with stopping tabs. Anyone else suffering the same?

    I think most people who have suffered from anxiety have has some form of dizzy spell. Escalators and even patterns on carpets would send my head west. I thought I was epileptic at one point,but once I overcome the anxiety the dizzy spells stopped.

      Have you got any other symptoms? The fact you've been suffering with anxiety for 4 years should prove to you that your dizziness is more likely going to be casued by your anxiety rather than a tumor. You're acting like I did when I suffered from anxiety. Both of us opted for the worst possible scenario. I know of a couple of people who are living with vertigo type symtoms,and not one has a tumor,they have an inner ear problem. In fact, most people I know have suffered spells of dizziness,and I'm yet to know of one who's had a tumor.

      I've posted this before on another article but I'll leave it again. My Dr said to me once "an elephant and a mouse are both mammals,they both have 4 legs,2 eye's and 2 ears,yet they're nothing a like". Just because you've got one syptom of an illness doesn't me you've got the illness. I thought I had CJD (mad cows disease) once,even tho I've been a vegetarian for most of my life,yet I still opted for worst option, because I read one of the first symptoms of CJD was a sore knee,and I had a sore knee at the time. Common sense goes out the window when you suffer from anxiety. Good luck Sally,I hope you get better soon.

    Hi Sally, Dizzyness and head pressure are classic anxiety symptoms, basically the small capillary blood vessels close which gives the sensation of a tight pressure on the scalp, it won't harm you.
