A great site I wanted to share
 
 
Go to the section on "Psych Aspects of dizziness"
 
 
Here is part of it
 

Among patients I see with Panic Disorder, a striking number have symptoms in specific situations. Persons with Panic Disorder have spontaneous attacks of intense fear and discomfort that begin abruptly, almost like an adrenaline rush or flight or fight reaction, like palpitations, sweating, shaking, intense fear, tremor, inability to catch one’s breath. These sensations occur on spontaneously or when in specific situations such as a car or supermarket. Sensitivity to a car or market is so typical, it bolsters the diagnosis of a panic attack. Whenever I suspect panic disorder, I always ask specifically about reactions to being in a car or supermarket. Most of the time the person will mention it on their own. It is enough to make you wonder what’s so unusual about these particular situations?

   Very good site peacesoul , thank you for sharing that ,
   I find my dizziness is usually upon standing when I get out
   of car . I forget to sit a few minutes and it hits when I start walking
   in store . I just keep walking and focus on where I am going till I can reach shopping cart .
   My ears are making a whooshing sound . That site was very helpful to me .
    Hugs , Megie

I am very dizzy today but it is getting better..................I think my meds may have contributed to feeling ill all day.  Pray my friends, I must be at the clinic at 1000 for my skin cancer removals tomorrow.

Need your help.  Hold me up, my legs feel like jello.  Why now?

Hugs

Relax lisha..you are not alone...Welcome to HW :-)  Dizzyness is very scary at times of anxiety...breathing is the key to it all for me - once I take control and slow the breathing everything comes right - eventually lol.

lisha

Good advice by Sista J.  You may also want to be sure you are drinking plenty of flurids, water of gator aid.  The body can lose a large amount of fluids in the extreme hot weather.

Welcome to Healing Well.  We are happy to have you here.

I have dizziness and weakness alot. ANd it's not only during panic attacks. I was wondering if I should talk to my MD about it. I'm afraid that I'm just freaking out about everything. I'm afraid that the MD will say it's all in my head. I have wanted to tell him but I just freeze up. My symptoms are: frequent dizziness, night sweats, sudden onsets of nausea without explination, right side of body is very achy and weak, (it seems like everything that ever goes wrong with me is all on the right side of my body.), chest pain ect.
AM I just crazy or is there something wrong?

I too have dizziness at times and try to play it off as nothing so I wont worry. However sometimes it does get the best of me. I assume it is from anxiety (atleast I hope). I have never really looking into it much but when I have said anything about it in the past to my doc he always says its anxiety. I think alot of us on here have had dizziness. I wish someone would just come up with a magic cure for anxiety!

Hi there

Lets not get too worried at this stage..anxiety can cause all sorts of physical symptoms - however, Gramps is quite correct and if anyone reading these posts is at all concerned about dizzyness or any other symptoms unexplained or not - of course plz go and see your Health Professional.

That is tough to say. I have all the same symptoms but i have Lyme disease.

I think you should have a full physical done by a DR and not worry about the dr saying it's all in your head. This is your health, not the dr's

Lyme disease? how do you get that? Isn't that from like, getting a tick or something? Can you get it some other way. I really think my MD would tell me that it's just my anxiety. Thanks for the advice!! Love Love Love!

I have no idea how I got it. Yes it's caused from an infected tick bite, but it's now believed lyme can be transmitted by misquitos, fleas and maybe even black fly bites.
I've been sick for 14 yrs w/out an answer. I was told I had lupus as well. I believe the lyme brought in lupus.
My MD told me it was all in my head until I did some testing and got answers. You need to get some serious tests done. Find a compassionate MD

Telll him/her the truth about your symtoms and you advise your MD which tests you would like.

The regular lyme test called Elisa is not a reliable test therefore even if you had lyme, the test would be neg. The Elisa test has a 90% failure rate.
But start with having your thyroid checked and basically a full work up, and go from there. Also make sure the MD checks what's called you ANA (nuclear antibody). this is the test given to see if there is any auto immune activity. Mine has been + for 14 yrs. A + result does not mean illness, but in most cases it is.

You need to be the boss when you walk into the dr's office. Remember, you're paying them, they work for you

Hey I am feeling worse but I know I'll be okay. I've been extremely tired lately. And going anywhere completely wares me out. I know I have a 2 year old but he doesn't stress me out much so I don't know where this exahstion is coming from. I think it may be my Paxil. I'm making a doc app tommorow so I'll let you know what I find out. Thanks for caring. It means so much to know that I am cared for and that someone is there. LOVE YA!!!

I am so sorry your feeling worse and I will be waiting to hear what the physician has to say to you.

Praying for you to feel better.
