Angest, welcome back, it's so nice to hear that things have been going well for you. Is it possible that this dizziness is from an illness like flu or do you feel that it is the anxiety returning? I know that being unwell can really knock me around anxiety wise and if this is the case, be gentle with yourself, a fever can re-produce anxiety and make you feel overwhelmed big time. If you think it's just the anxiety then remeember that recovery is a process of baby steps, some days it can come back and then bam! It's gone again.
I don't want to give medical advice, but if you need the valium maybe talk about changing the dose with your doc for the time being until this passes. I hope you are feeling better soon and that this is just a minor blip for you. Keep us posted okay?
Hi there angest..How about making an appt to see your doctor for a check up - to ease your mind if nothing else - once you know what's going on you can deal with whatever it is and move on with your life and not have that horrible feeling of 'worry' in the back of your mind.
