Dizziness

I was doing really good and then I felt unbalanced in public out of nowhere and it scared me... so now I'm constantly thinking I'm dizzy. Could this be just anxiety or somethingore serious?

This is a really common symptom us anxiety sufferers get. It's also very unsettling and some times scary, which also causes more anxiety

I have the falling sensations as well I can't stand for long periods of time... I refuse to shop without a buggy I can't stand check out lines it causes dizziness and the falling sensations like the floor drops kind of... I feel off balance pretty much everyday and feel like I will faint at any given minute I feel spaced out and dizzy 90% of the time... Doctors all say I'm fine I just have panic and anxiety disorder..I feel like have anxiety because of the way I feel not the other way around..

Yes I understand I've dealt with this for four years now... I got better for awhile and a stressful time in my life brought it back full force
