I have been feeling extremely lightheaded and dizzy recently and it has been making me extremely anxious and causing panic attacks. But I don't know if it is the dizziness that is causing the anxiety or the anxiety that is causing the dizziness. A few people in my family suffer from vertigo so I also don't know if I have that. But the doctor has said in the past they don't think I have vertigo. But anyway I was really complaining about these dizzy attacks I kept getting earlier on and my Gran who suffers from vertigo her self told me to take one of her stemetil tablets to see if that helps my dizziness. So I took one earlier on today and it has massively helped the lightheadedness and dizziness. I have hardly felt dizzy all day. I have also felt a lot less anxious today. I am just wondering if stemetil usually helps dizziness this quickly? and if it also helps anxiety and is used to treat anxiety?
Dang, I wondered about that but didn't know much background so generically said possible allergy. I work with a gal once that had vertigo, she seemed like she was surfing sometime but she was capable for a large part. Can't know what someone else's shpe feel like let alone walking a mile.
Rediscuss it with your primary, if they blow it off you go to a speacialist with a family history-you should not be rejected, your educated.
Go to the doc first, if you tried a med that worked for you maybe she knew without the fancy tests but leave it to a good doc and you shouldn't go wrong. All my-->
