This has been happening to me as well, but in addition to the dizzy feeling, when I wake up (startled from being dizzy) my heart is pounding very very very hard and fast. Sometimes my hands get tingly, and often my hands and arms will twitch afterwards when I'm trying to calm myself down. I also wake up from sleep apnea (? Haven't been to a doctor to confirm I have this, but I've basically just been waking up from not breathing, usually on my back.)
Also- I've felt this feeling when I was awake before too, when u was traveling, post a music festival. It was very very scary and I truly feared I was going to die. I would feel dizzy but almost like I was sinking away, and like my head was buzzing. It could have been a lack of sleep combined with not eating much and traveling but it's comparable to how I feel falling asleep sometimes but worse. So I guess I'm asking if anyone else has felt this while awake too?
Do these symptoms sound similar to anyone else? Should I see a doctor for anxiety? I'm admittedly a hypochondriac, so I scare myself into thinking the worst, but I also have a history of high stress (not sure if I'd class it as anxiety or anxiety attacks though).
