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.

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.

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.
