Please read my whole post, I would love to hear your experiences and advice.
I've had Generalized Anxiety and Panic Attacks since I was 13. I have good and bad periods, sometimes I'll go months anxiety-free and other times (like right now) I hit bad periods.
I've always worried about my health, more so when I'm in an anxious period. I'm emetophobic (afraid of vomiting) which is the root of my anxiety along with losing control.
But in the last week I've started having dizziness. At first it was just a bit of brain fog but in the last few days I feel constantly dizzy/vertigo/unsteady (they are all pretty much the same thing).
This worries me a lot as I feel like I have no control over it whatsoever. It really scares me. Like a lot. Also, dizziness is often related with throwing up, I think? The last time I vomited was about 5-6 years ago.
So can anxiety really be the root of my recent dizziness? It seems like such a physical symptom that should have an explanation.
What can I do to cope?
I'm 16 year old male going to highschool. I need to be able to focus in class and get my homework done which is pretty much impossible when i feel like I'm constantly moving.
I appreciate any responses with your similar experiences and any advice that you may have.
Thanks in advance.
