Hi Lam...  I would say that this is my #1 symptom.  It happens to me more often than any of the other symptoms that my anxiety throws at me.  The dizziness that I have is not vertigo, where the room is spinning, it's the kind of dizziness where I feel very lightheaded, and feel off balance.  Sometimes it has gotten so bad that I have felt like I was going to faint, but I never have.  There are a few things that I'm trying to do to limit this symptom.  When the dizziness occurs, I look at how I am breathing, checking to make sure I am not hyperventilating.  I take slow breaths in through my nose, and breath out through my mouth, using my diaphragm.  I am making sure to drink lots of water, to keep myself hydrated.  I am also eating frequent, small meals, to keep my blood sugar more level.  And when I walk, I stand up straight and make certain to look straight ahead, not down at the floor.  I am also taking frequent outdoor walks, keeping my eyes on the horizon.  Thanks for the post, Lam.  The best to you!...  Chuck
