Always feeling dizzy, wobbly and lightheaded

I am worrying about this now. I'm feeling so wobbly, dizzy and lightheaded. I don't know if it's the cold weather, anxiety or something worse! On Saturday night (early Sunday morning) I had to deal with my Aunt and her friend who got so drunk they couldn't walk or talk, in fact being in the back of a car with them did my head in. Ever since then I've been feeling this way, I stand up and go dizzy. I feel sort off off balance walking but no one can tell this when I ask them to look at me. I am going mad ?

  • Not at all.

    I get similar if I 'tweak' the muscles in the back of my neck or I get my neck very cold.

    I got whiplash some years ago which started it all off.

  • It's strange, if I'm outside in the cold it gets worse but in doors and warm I'm fine. I am off to London on Friday for a weekend but don't want to feel this way then.

  • Hi Cardiff girl

    you may have an inner ear infection similar to vertigo or as Bramwell says you may have tweaked a muscle in your neck.

  • I've got a appoiment to see my doctor but not till the 20th. I will wait and see what happens till then. I shouldn't panic but I do

  • Hello :-)

    I too get this, don't worry too much but getting it checked would be the best, I had this for 7months, checked with gp he said all is fine, the more I worried the worse it got, I still have it now but try and react a bit different instead of freaking out xxxx

  • Any advice and tips on how to deal with this ? Had it for a year before and now 4 months now, feel wobbly walking about, feel crap when using the PC and phone

  • You are not on your own. Mine started after a vertigo attack in September, till now I still get off balance dizziness, lightheadedness, but not as bad as when it started.

  • Today it feels worse. I am really having trouble with dizzness and feeling lightheaded. Told my Mum who said ' I feel the same it could be the flu'. I am off to London in 2 days and don't want to feel this way then

  • Hello Cardiffgirl, I had this feeling of feeling wobbly, and being off balance when walking, and it was especially bad if I looked at the ground or at the horizon while walking. I also had the feeling of having a permanent hangover, despite not drinking any alcohol. It started quite suddenly and lasted for months. It was awful. One doctor said it was an inner ear infection, while the other doctor said it was stress. I'm still not sure which it was.

  • Your symptoms are the exact same as mine any advice on how to deal with it ? I'm really struggling

  • Look into Vitamin D Deficiency
