  • Hi. Have you had a scan of your brain and head done? If yes then I assume nothing was found - and that indicated anxiety doing its worst. Dizziness is a very common symptom in people who have anxiety. Sometimes how we breathe can affect the dizziness too - it might help if you can take long deep breaths to avoid any kind of hyperventilation, which often triggers a full panic attack.Another possibility is that you have low blood pressure - well that can also be easily checked for you. Dehydration can also cause dizziness so make sure you are drinking enough.

    So if you feel dizzy dont worry too much - it is probably your anxiety. Get a drink, lie down and try to focus on a spot somewhere - this should help you regain control. Remember to have all the physical possibilities ruled out.

  • I had a mri about 1-2 years ago I have had 24 hour blood pressure monitor and heart monitor and all come back on but my pile is always high x

  • All come back ok but my pulse is always really high

  • So very likely it is anxiety making your life hard then. The positive thing is that you dont have a life threatening illness. You just have to find a way that minimises the symptom for you.

  • How are you do you suffer with anxiety bad

  • I am ok thank you - I did have quite bad anxiety for a while - always thinking I was about to die , or about to have a heart attack or something. But I have way fewer of those days now. I was lucky because my partner is a medic and I am a therapist, so we knew what had to be done. But even so, there are still days when it comes back - so my treatment will be continuing for a few more months yet.

    You need to have confidence in yourself and confidence that you will be be back to your old self at some point.
