Do any of you guys, seriously, have 24/7 dizziness/"off-balance"/swaying kind of feelings???
24/7 fatigue???

This is just so scary and horrible....
A big part of me knows it's anxiety, but, there is always this voice in the back of my head saying, "No, it's not. There is something seriously wrong and if you don't fix it you are going to DIE..."
And these crazy symptoms just tell my brain, "See, I told you!"
Ugh....  :(

Yeah the dizzy/lightheaded feelings are the worst.  I don't have a blood pressure or inner ear problem so the docs say its anxiety. I have fatigue but it turns out I had sleep apnea, I'm on week 3 of CPAP.  Good luck with the dizzy spells.

Christina: I feel for you, I have the anxiety and the dizziness (swaying) for two years now 24/7. I have made progress by exercising, running and walking everyday. Running especially takes the energy out of the anxiety. It's difficult living like this each day, people look at you and they have no idea how you are feeling cause you look normal. I know what you're talking about you know it's anxiety, but then your brain is telling you, oh no it's not, there is something wrong with me. I've had moments where I actually felt normal, so I know it's anxiety but I find it hard to keep myself distracted to have my life back again. I just started to watch your videos, just listening to you gives me hope and that I'm not alone in this journey.

I'm afraid of sleep apnea and have been hearing a lot about it lately.
What are my chances of having it?
I am 35, 135 lbs, I eat as healthy as possible, I don't smoke...never have, I don't drink...haven't in years, but I do snore sometimes.....

Hi Christina, well it could be anxiety, but have you ever been checked for allergies?  I was checked by an allergist last Fall, and have bad seasonal as well as environmental allergies, and allergy to wheat.  I have been having on/off dizziness since 2007, I'm thinking mine is more so the allergies because anxiety never presented with dizziness, for me.  Snoring could possibly be nasal congestion also.  Just a thought.

Take care :)

Christina; I've heard of people that have sleep apnea, its just not snoring, do you wake up several times during the night and you can't breath? I snore sometimes too if I'm sleeping on my back.

You're more prone to it if you're overweight and have a large neck (which I do) but any body type can get it.  Daytime fatigue, waking up in the middle of night, morning headaches are a couple symptoms.   Snoring is a symptom too but if you snore it doesn't always mean you have it.   During the sleep study I had 22 apneas (stopped breathing) per hour.  With my anxiety it took me over a year to get tested, and I really wished I did it earlier.

Yes, all of my flared up at a certain time every day too.  I'm feeling better now though and don't really get dizzy that much anymore.
