    It's ALL stress sweetie I promise you. I've had it all, It is amazing what it can do to your body, even when your not stressed. Our nervous system is highly sensitive at the minute. Nothing is going to happen to you. Stop all the what if thoughts, all the googling and take on day at a time. You WILL get better if you do this x

      You have convinced your mind and body that there is something wrong with you and it is reacting accordingly it needs rest sweetie, you need rest. When your symptoms come do NOTHING just let them be and get on with your day, they cannot harm you x

      Hi Sara, just wondering if you have had chronic dizziness with anxiety

      I really don't know how I'm going to get through this, I feel as if I can't cope with this symptom and feel it's taking me to breakdown. Have had CT scan of neck & head which was normal, am waiting to see ENT, however, neurologist & GP thinks the dizziness is caused by panic, I feel as if I'm swaying & it's worse sitting still without my head supported

      I am also entering menopause so am very emotional get very anxious & also crying especially in the morning.

      I just understand how anxiety can cause chronic dizziness

      I'd be grateful to know what you think

      Ps dizziness started in March this year while sitting in hairdressers, had been suffering from various stressors for a while

      I do chick, and depersonalisation, it seems everybody's body responds differently to stress. It's your body and minds way of saying I can't cope with this worry and sort of shuts down cognition wise. I am currently 30 weeks pregnant and anxiety + pregnancy is a whole other ball game!!! I am just taking one day at a time. What does it feel like for you hon? Is there any part of the day/situations where you don't notice it?

      Hi Sara thanks for replying and it's lovely your pregnant, I have three fab sons.

      I feel the dizziness has been worse lately & not really getting a break from it, I don't know if it's because I'm stressing more about it the longer it's lasting

      A couple of weeks ago I was able to enjoy a walk with my husband or enjoy watching the soaps on TV, now I feel I can't enjoy anything just always worried & feel really lonely during the day as I've had to give my job up, I'm just watching everyone enjoying life & im always dizzy

      I dread mornings as it's the 1st thing I think about & have to sit up in bed for a while b4 I get up

      Very emotional as well because of hormone decline, feel really sad

      Sorry for being so negative but I've developed a real fear of this dizziness

      Hope your enjoying your evening x

    Hi Shar I would love to know if the symptoms ever went away. I'm awake right now at 3:48 am dealing with what seems to be exactly the same thing. It shows your post was 3 years ago. Did things ever change? This is a tormenting feeling I hope will soon end and never come back.

      Hi John I’ve had the exact same tingling feeling started at Christmas time and now in the last week after I had a body massage it’s now spread all over my body I went to the docs and they were very dismissive and said it could be anxiety and that I need to believe I’m ok! Or the gp said it could also be musculoskeletal. I now have a buzz like feeling in my toes, arms legs my shins back head my neck feels heavy at times then some days it doesn’t I’m going back to the docs on the 5th of March for a follow up. What does yours feel like? Dan.

      What Did the doctor say? Hopefully everything is ok....i have been suffering from anxiety for years...and lately it’s gotten worse as I was diagnosed with post viral syndrome and the anxiety has gone through the roof at times and I think something is wrong and I feel trapped

      Do you have the tingling sensation around your body? The docs have told me to stop worrying about my tingling/prickling sensations as they are not important, I’m going to see a acupuncturist in April just in case it is a nerve problem they have good results to help with that and anxiety!
