For the past couple months since my anxiety has been acting up I keep getting a dropping feeling. I have never fainted but it feels like what im about to do. I ignore it and it goes away then comes out of nowhere! Ive also been dizzy since 2014 after some extreme stress. But the fainting feeling is very scary...is it just an anxiety symptom?
Does anyone else get a faint type feeling? - Anxiety Support
I experience dizziness and faintness often when I’m anxious, but I think that there are a lot of things that feed into it. Typically, this happens to me because my anxiety and other issues have interfered with my general care for my body. Failing to eat, drink, or sleep enough alone can cause you to feel faint, but if you combine these things, it’s almost certain that every time you stand up, you’ll be dizzy and see black.
Yes,the dizzy weak feeling is from anxiety . Most people with anxiety have had this feeling from time to time and It will never hurt you. You have heard the saying...ignore it and it will go away..and it does. It"s only a feeling . I have a friend that has these spells and she carries cheese and crackers, or candy on her..this helps boost the sugar levels. Coke helps also.
One most important thing i forgot to say is go to your drug store and buy vitamins. ".B vitamins 50 mg. ".. all the Bs are in one bottle . You need these for energy and they help heal the nervous system !! Most important to get!! These make a big difference in how you feel. Our bodies do not store these vitamins and is why we are depleted, they help the nervouse system function better , helps heal the nerves , you can;t ever overdose on them ,we pee them out. Make sure you take them ever day you will feel better in a few days after taking them. Let me know how you are doing.
All the time!
I’ve been dealing with that dropping feeling as well. Like I’m on an elevator or roller coaster and just dropping suddenly. I also get a very strange head sensation along with it. I didn’t relate it to anxiety at first and the more I worried about it, the worse & more frequently it happened. From what I’ve researched (which has been a lot) online, it’s a form of vertigo.
I have really bad allergies and when that sensation was at its worst for me (twice in the same week where it continued for a few hours) the dr. did say I had a lot of fluid in my ears & a sinus infection. I haven’t had that sensation going on two months now (still terrified of it happening again). I had experienced that sensation on and off for maybe a yr before that but it had never lasted more than a few minutes. Now I’m on a nasal spray, Lexapro & hydroxozine - which is an antihistamine but also used for anxiety. So not really sure if it was caused by allergies or anxiety or more likely both. How often does it happen for you? Do you have any allergies/ ear issues?
