Yes, quite often I get the swaying thing like I'm on a ship as I walk along or ride in a car.

I think it's muscle tension in my neck.

It first started after I got whiplash from the car breaking violently I was a passenger in and my head jerking back the forward very hard.


Yeh I get this a lot its scares me a lot sometimes if I'm walking it starts and feel like I'm gonna fall over and my breathing gets tight everyday lately I worry it'll get rly bad that i cnt breathe I'm constantly anxious bout my health it gets me down like I cut my foot slightly on door n worried bout tetanus or feel dizzy and worry something serious is wrong I also have ocd I feel trapped and like I have no life I jus wish all this anxiety would stop its been a lot worse past two weeks


Unsteadiness - anxiety symptoms

Unsteadiness: You feel suddenly unsteady, light-headed, woozy or dizzy. This is sometimes accompanied by a feeling that you might faint or pass out. It also may feel as though you are walking on a boat, or that the floor seems to move up and down and it's hard to balance. You may also have difficulty placing your feet because your perception of the ground or floor may be incorrect. In some cases it may seem that even though you are standing on a firm floor, the floor may be vibrating or moving.

Unsteadiness, dizziness, feeling dizzy or light-headed are common symptoms of stress, fear, and anxiety. Unfortunately, doctors often misdiagnose stress- and anxiety-related unsteadiness as a symptom of Vertigo or Meniere's Disease.

Stress and anxiety caused unsteadiness should NOT be considered as a serious problem. In fact, there are many natural and practical things you can do to eliminate unsteadiness. It should, however, motivate you to better understand stress and anxiety, and to take proactive action to better manage these in your life, since prolonged stress and anxiety contribute to more serious health conditions if left untreated.

.,,,,,,,,Hi I found this on a website relating to symptoms of anxiety,so it is just a symptom,unpleasant as it is,but nothing to be overly worried about,easier said than done when you suffer from the anxiety we do,are you seeking professional help in any way,if not i would advise you see your doctor to get the help you need,good luck
