I understand EXACTLY what you are talking about. That is the most confusing part of this anxiety/panic disorder. For example: I had really bad nausea for MONTHS..like Oct, Nov and Dec. Then all of a sudden it just left. I havent had a bad episode since Dec. But in the meantime..I am getting those flutterings more and more lately, but no nausea. Weird. It is just strange to me, how we can be anxious ALL the time, and yet not ALL of the symptoms we suffer with are present all the time. I get that dizziness you are describing EVERY DAY. It is sooo frightening. It feels as though any moment you are going to hit the floor( faint), stumble, etc. When I got out places(grocery shopping) I always have to LEAN on the buggy, as if I need it to support myself so I dont fall over. It is just so weird how the symptoms come and go.
I asked my physchologist this very question around the year '98, '99. I said..."Why do they( symptoms) differ all the time and why do they just come out of nowhere". He said "Well, that is how panic/anxiety works, sometimes you might have ALL the symptoms present, sometimes just one or two present. And they come out of nowhere because that is why they call it PANIC attacks..it just STRIKES without warning a lot of the time.". So he really didnt explain WHY it happens this way, just bacially that is the nature of panix/anxiety.
In His Grip,
Hi there! My mom suffers with those very things in her eyes as well. She went to the eye dr and he told her those are Ocular Migraines. Put her on Inderal(sp?)...which I believe is a Beta blocker. It is weird..he called them Ocular Migraines, but my mom NEVER gets a headache when they come on. Just the eye thingys and then in about a half an hour, 20 mins. they will go away.

^ She still gets them, but not as often( and when she does get them they tend to last about 20 mins). She can go like 3-4 weeks and not get them at all. Sometimes though, she can get them off and on all month, like about once a week. It is hard to say whether or not the medicine is really working. She might be getting them a lot more often if she wasnt on anything though. She also just told me that when she does get the ocular things, that they dont seem to be as severe as they were prior to starting the medicine.
I really hope that it helps with your migraines!
