I've suffered with this dreadful dizziness and falling sensation for a year nearly. Totally got me out of the blue after an incredibly stressful time last year with my newborn, my own bad health and my mother. I was so frightened and obsessed with the dizziness I couldn't properly function. And the more I concentrated on it - the worse it got. I was constantly complaining 'I'm so dizzy I'm so dizzy.' Went to the docs 100 times or so. Awful. I went on a journey of meditation/Buddhist talks online to stay calm and yoga. But still desperately seeking answers to my dizziness I got an Mri and blood tests. Each came back clear and docs said its anxiety but I couldn't let this sink in as the symptoms were more than dizziness. They were headaches. Numbness in arms. Pins and needles and twitches on my eyes and mouth. Many more things too. I just felt I was dying. I still get some of these things daily and the dizziness is worse in the morning when I wake and last thing in the day and at night. When I'm most tired and on my period. I have to face the fact that anxiety is to blame. I may have some inner ear issues but this dizziness is lessening as time goes on and manageableon a daily basis. I'm aware of it all the time though. It's become habit to expect to be dizzy. But try to keep busy and not think about it. I listen to 'infinite waters - diving deep' on YouTube. I'm changing my lifestyle and eating better now. Stress and anxiety are the worst things EVER. But I refuse medication and take vitamins now. Check your iron. Check magnesium levels and take vitamin d. Do as much as you can for yourself and try to walk out and do breathing exercises. I find the more excitable I get the more the anxiety happens and it's worse when I speak to people. Strange I know. My head goes Whirley and strange and I need to sit quiet afterwards to get straight again. I get tired so quickly and feel I could easily sleep after I do too much or speak for too long. I think once you have anxiety - you have it. It's learning how to manage it. Put yourself first more and don't do too much to exasperate your anxiety. I understand completely what your going through.
