Dizzy lightheaded again today :(

Not feeling right in the head again today. This has been going on more in the last year. But not always. Blood & urine tests are fine. Wondering if it has to do with my sinuses: they never seem to be that bad but I do feel things going on up there, esp when the weather changes.
but of course I’ve been googling today and diagnosing myself w a tumour and/or a stroke.
Doctor has agreed to refer me to a neurologist.
In the meantime... :rolleyes:

Anxiety does cause this cloudiness/dizzy feeling. Good to get it checked out though-because it could be vertigo or something that meds can fix.

But it is 100% an anxiety symptom as well. So don't be upset if you don't get a diagnosis. Just know that it does get better. You will have good days and bad days but that's ok.

Yup! My anxiety manifests itself as feeling dizzy and/or lightheaded...I too thought it was something bad but the Dr's were right when they said anxiety...

Oh my god this is me like I have been suffering with lightheadness off-balance feelings for 10 years and I have never been able to find a reason I was recently diagnosed with cervical stenosis and told her it’s possible it could come from that but it is the worst feeling ever it’s like a complete off-balance lightheaded not vertigo like spinning just like I feel like I’m swinging or going to fall over it’s absolutely terrible and at most times it is constant is that the way yours is

I have had this for months now! Constant feeling off balance with a sort of swimming feeling in my head. I know it's anxiety. I don't even think it's anything serious, but it is so annoying! It has been driving me crazy lately.

I also thought it could be sinuses. Secretly i still think it is... But it's not, rationally, it's anxiety. Did 2 checkups by different nose doctors and also visited the neurologist. Nothing except anxiety is here and the fact that i have to accept it.

Holy s*** guys, I’ve had the same! So glad I found this post , just reading it has helped a lot. I have had what feels like a billion symptoms of anxiety but this was new to me, and felt it the first time this week. 4 years ago I did have head pulses and like I was going over a hump in a car , and that went on for a few weeks had me really worried too. But this is so annoying like you say and has had me mega worried. I have been under massive stress recently, and was dude to go on a plane for the first time in two years when the off balance and dizziness started, so guess the anxiety firmly reminded me of it’s existence this week again , ready your experiences has helped and hope me sharing will help you too. I feel exactly the same things.

Hi Danny, how do you feel now? I did this morning, felt all over the place, but tried to think positively, and kept busy, and I felt it soon went. Cropped up two more occasions during the day. Earlier this week though the dizziness felt constant. It was aweful.
