Dizziness and balance issues

Hey guys so I've been having dizziness and an off balance feeling for about a week now. The first spell was in the shower and my doc thinks it's due to the water being too hot but that doesn't explain the continued dizziness. It seems when I stress about it, or panic- it gets worse. I don't know if it's the shower spell that triggered it or if it's something I should worry about. It's not like I completely dizzy, but it's like the room is tilting sometimes and then I freak out then I get really dizzy. Someone give me some insight. Please! Thanks so much.

Maybe your ears are plugged up from a cold coming on? Sometimes ears are plugged and you don't realize it and you get nervous and exaggerate things in your mind which causes even more dizzy feelings! Anxiety can cause a vicious circle ​sometimes. Maybe check your blood pressure and you'll see it's good which should calm you down. Take care
