For the last 6-7 months I've been having dizziness/lightheadedness and only thing that seems to help is if I take a xanax pill..
Anyways I've had countless of blood exams done , MRI scans of the brain and heart studied. All clear . Anyways last night I had a scary episode where I was sleeping and woke up super dizzy and a pounding heart and now today I have a tingling buzzing feeling in my forehead . Do you guys think it might be anxiety related or seizures. I've never blacked out .

Hello Rickk, I am not a dr but the symptoms you are describing sounds very much anxiety related, especially when the Xanax helps. Use your coping skills to help get this back under control.

Take care.

Rickk, if it will help make you feel better you can ask your dr to refer you to a neurologist. Depending on the dr the referral may or may not happen. Talk to your dr.
