Vertigo and severe anxiety

Feel so ill tonight. Every time I try to go to sleep I get spinning sensation and I keep jumping with what feels like an electric shock but think it's just too much adrenaline pumping round my body. I've got work in 4 hours and gotta do a 10hr shift but I just can't sleep :-(

I got prescribed cinnarizine tablets for vertigo last week cos they checked my ears out nd I had fluid in my ear drum. I never took the tablets cos being an anxious person I worry bout side effects. Got my ears checked yesterday privately and nothing there so god knows, I keep getting double vision off it

I get these symptoms a lot (vertigo), feeling like I'm drunk, like Im about to fall over. It makes me more anxious when I get them. I've noticed the more I think about the symptoms the worse they get.

It's making my eyes feel like they are all over the place. Giving me visual disturbance. It's awful :-(

Have u ever took medication for it?

I took 1 pill once, I don't like taking medication. Ended up not taking them and the symptoms just passed. The more I calmed myself down the more it passed.

These can be symptoms of migraine. You don't even have to have a headache. Check out migraine associated vertigo or vestibular migraine. Hope it settles!

I got sertraline too nd I'm terrified to take them as I worry about side effects too and don't want to feel any worse than am already feeling. Just wish I could be anxiety free and relax and be happy xx

Hi Lyn I've had sertraline for 7 months and won't take them!! Was on them for 4 months before I had my stroke and they helped a bit😳But 6weeks post stroke I was dizzy and felt shocking so stopped everyone said I was mad to stop but i felt it was the right decision.16 months on still have anxiety but having counselling and doing meditation and taking Vitamins.im not the person I was but that may be stroke?? Keep battling on to beat the bully anxiety.im also reading self help for your nerves by dr claire weekes a friend bought it for me 2 years ago and it didn't make sence but know I understand it.take care and be patient and kinder to your self,my physlogist says think cold eyes negative thoughts,and warm eyes positive thoughts we are all so critical and negative about ourselves and we should embrace our achievements,good luck xx
