Occasionally and infrequently,I have "spells" while sitting at my Desk.It seems to happen when I lean far back in my Chair..It is the SCARIEST and most WEIRDEST feeling!When it happens,it doesn't last long only a few seconds..the Anxiety surrounding it lasts longer coz it shakes me up..I always have to lay down,or I feel I will fall down..
 
It happened early this Morning.I felt this Vertigo type imbalance feeling,was shaky,trembled,Mouth got dry and my Heart pounded..didn't have Chest pain,but had an achy feeling in my Chest when my Heart pounded..
 
Am not sure if it's Panic,inner Ear and Sinus problem (which I have all Year round),or if I may be sitting to close to the Computer monitor..my Desk is an old study desk not made for a Computer.I do have motion sickness..
 
Wish it would stop coz it SCARES ME!!!

Sydnee,

Hello.  Have you ever seen a physician for this vertigo your experiencing?  You may have an inner ear problem and possibly need a medication for it.  I am not a professional but I have one bad ear and have had sudden dizzy spells but I know I have the ear problem so I don't panic. :-)

Take care
Kitt

Hi Stkitt,
No,I haven't seen a Physician for the Vertigo.I'm making a list (which is 10 miles long) to discuss with my Doctor..It seems that leaning back in my chair causes momentary Vertigo and it scares me,so I panic and become Anxious.Today I feel very clogged in my Frontal Sinuses and my Ears have been bothering me the past couple of Day's.Night before last I had a slight pain in my L Ear.
In 1998,I had an Inner Ear Infection in my L Ear.Was treated with an Oral Antibiotic and Ear Drop.Several Years later,I had a Fungal Infection in the same Ear.I've noticed diminished hearing in my L Ear.Sometimes both Ears feel stuffed,clogged with a slight ringing.At times my Teeth feel hollow and like am talking through my Ears (if that makes sense)..

Sydnee,

Panic attacks at work are the worst! You don't know how long to try to tough it out, so that your coworkers don't see you freak out, or when to dash off in escape mode! Fortunately, my boss knows (sort of) about my anxiety, and he's not ruffled by it.

I'm also a medical list maker. For my health anxiety, that's been one way to feel better about my doctor's diagnosis. A list lets me be sure I ahven't forgotten to tell him something that he needs to know in order to diagnose me correctly.

Good luck to you!

Sydnee,

I just went through a bout a bad health anxiety. The list really did help. I also had to ask my doctor three or more times each appointment, "Now this can't kill me, right?" when he diagnosed reflux or anxiety or whatever. I really needed to hear the answer repeated over and over so I could make it "stick" in my head.

I also took my boyfriend along to all my appointments as a second set of ears. Then I'd have him remind me at home about the doctor's reassurance. If I had to go alone, I'd take a tape recorder - just something to really remember that the doctor said I'd be okay, and to remember how I felt when he said it.

Sydnee,

That doesn't sound like any fun at all.  I hope you can see your doc soon and hand over that list of concerns.  Possibly it is an inner ear thing, but it also sounds a bit like panic to me too.  I wish you the best of luck. Keep us posted on how you go now okay?

Bless your Heart.I'm sorry to read you had Health Anxiety.I hope it is much better for you!I've had it a good while,however it didn't really come out until after my Father died..mine has for the most part been focused around Infections,but it's the "big stuff" I worry about now.There is a lot of Heart Disease and Diabetes in my Family and a few who've had Cancer.I'm 35 (still considered young at least by me) and I MUST find a way to overcome this and LIVE!
