Had a few worries over the last few weeks. But these seem to have gone. Or at least I thoughtt

Been having a few dizzy spells at backcof head ish. But seen to last ages. Not bad bad but it’s there’s. Stopping me sleeping now. Every now and again very I get like a throbbing dizzy moment. No pain at all though or head aches.

I am a worrier in general. I also have adhd and haven’t had a full nights uninterrupted sleeping in about 20 years. Literally. Takes me a while to get to sleep. Then I might get two hours. Then wake up.then get another two to three hours. I’m seeing my Gp next week anyway but thought I’d get some advice.

I had chest pains a few weeks ago. Got them tested and had ecg blood pressure and blood tests took and all fine. It it’d the dizziness lately that’s got me. More so today and tonight. Pretty much most of the day had the weird dizzy feeling.

Someone had said it sounds like anxiety. Thought I’d give it a question on here.

Thanks for reading

Hi Matt224,

Definitely a good idea to go to your GP. If they do diagnose you with anxiety, keep in my mind they may recommend an antidepressant medication. You should probably read about the pros/cons of going that route so that you are informed ahead of time. They may also recommend talk therapy which is almost always helpful without any downside except for time/money.

If you can improve your sleep, it may improve your anxiety. For me, my anxiety is usually correlated with lack of sleep. I usually take over the counter herbal supplements containing valerian root, melatonin and some other non-Rx herbal ingredients to help me get back on track. Most of the traditional over the counter sleep aids will leave you foggy/hungover the next day. Rx sleep aids tend to cause a dependency issue/addiction is some people.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the reply. It’s strange Cos I have no depression thoughts. I’m not sad or down or anything like that. Just wondering if any of those symptoms seem like anxiety

Hey Matt224, I had the same feeling of dizziness a month ago and continued for a while, I went to doctor and he told me that I have general anxiety, and that I need to cop with that. Lately I have been better, no dizziness but occasional lightheaded feeling.

I hope your dr visit gives you peace on your mind.

Did yours seem to last most of the day too? It’s really weird. It’d not a bad dizziness. Just like it’s always there at the back of the head.

Thanks for the reply

Yes, and its like a clockwork, its starts at noon exactly (believe it or not) and goes through the evening. Its not dizziness but looks like I will start to get dizzy any moment, is that have sense? Very weird feeling.

I did go to dr again and he told me that nothing's wrong with me, its just an anxiety.

Yeah kind of. I don’t feel dizzy it’s a dizzy feeling. Sometimes i get a weird feeling in my sides too. I don’t get much sleep though. I never have. Probably 5-6 hours a night

It definitely sounds like anxiety from my own experience. I have been dealing with health anxiety, social anxiety, etc. and I have many physical symptoms and lightheadedness 24/7 is one of them. I am also a huge worrier as well and it only triggers my anxiety more when I get these weird feelings. I would definitely recommend going to see your doctor, psychiatrist, or therapist or all the above because they can really help you.

Appreciate the response. A few people I know have said the same in that it sounds like it. Hopefully can get it sorted when I see my GP next week.

Had a decent couple of days. Today had a few stressful moments and the dizziness has started again tonight. Because I had stress free days with no dizziness and it has started tonight after a few stressed moments. I am starting to believe more it’s anxiety based.
