Has anyone on here had issues with dizziness and headaches constantly? It’s getting so bad that I feel like everything around me is fake. I’ve seen so many doctors and none of them have any answers and then I start getting anxious thinking it’s something terminal that they are missing. Then I convince myself I’m dying and it’s just a nonstop vicious cycle that I have no idea how to break or get over. My headaches are never in the same spot, and most of the time my neck hurts along with the headache..
Nonstop Dizziness for 6 months : Has anyone... - Anxiety Support
Hello.. I had the same ongoing problem for a few months told them I thought I had a brain tumour and I’m scared of dying. Had headaches and dizziness and blurred vision everyday for months. I couldn’t do normal things... I used to take 8 migraine tablets a day to get rid of headaches so they put me on sertraline and got rid of it all together. Maybe ask them about that.
I don't think it's terminal. It sounds like you are tied up in knots with so much tension in your neck, jaw, and other head/facial muscles. Look at a diagram of all the muscles of the head and neck- there's a lot to tense up! Headaches are very common for people in the throes of high anxiety.
It also sounds like you are have a very sensitized nervous system in general. Sensitization occurs when there has been so much anxious thinking, so much obsession with how you feel, and for so long, that your nervous system is just exhausted and kind of takes a weird "check out" break. People describe this as "feeling unreal" or "Like watching myself in a movie" or "feeling really detached". The dizziness goes along with it. This is very common with anxiety, it's all normal for the circumstances, and you can recover from all of it.
Check out the resources I have on my profile, especially Claire Weekes. I will post my favorite audio here for you. She describes all of this in depth. Wishing you all the best!
Yes! Lol I used to have it constantly
My severe vertigo/dizziness were a B12 deficiency. It can actually be severe if untreated (it actually made me bedridden) but the treatment is very simple! b12deficiency.info/signs-an...
Does any of that sound familiar?
You are definitely not dying. You have got yourself into a nervous breakdown and I will not be surprised to know you do not really have headaches at all. It seems your mind is just telling your body that you are unwell.
But just to put your mind at ease, you should start taking vitamins and supplements trusting that these will prevent the headaches. I know a couple of natural supplements and vitamins which can boost your immune system
