Hi, I'm on here because I've had trouble the past two years feeling like I'm walking on a boat or trampoline. My symptoms come and go, but now they're back again. It initially stated when I tapered off xanax a little over two years ago. I tapered too fast and went through withdrawals, then took Valium for a year and a half and have almost tapered of it. I'm down to 1mg a day, which is practically nothing. I've been tested for practically everything and docs have found nothing other than anxiety and possible Lyme disease (I was desperate and had them test for Lyme). However, the Lyme tests done are so inconclusive (I tested equivabacle meaning maybe I have it). Walking is primarily my only problem (other than the anxiety I get from the sensation of walking). At times, the room appears to shift too when walking and am thinking this may all be related to anxiety. The ways I have found to relieve this is by closing my eyes and standing on one leg, or jumping on a mini trampoline. Also, diet and exercise. I also go to neuro feedback, which has helped me to deal with the anxiety accompanied with this odd sensation of walking. I think I'll try yoga again. Anything that requires balancing seems to help. I remember one time I decided that nothing was wrong with me and got busy with life and this walking symptom pretty much went away or I'd say at least 80 percent away. Any further thoughts or advice on how to deal with this would b appreciated!
