back to worrying about this being a brain tumor
« on: March 30, 2014, 07:00:18 PM »
i still am very off balance and feeling dizzy and this has been 28 straight days now... i havent been on the prozac in 6 days..... i was just laying on my right side and watching tv for an hour and i got up and i felt worse, i wonder if a brain tumor would feel worse if im laying down and get up and realize im dizzy pretty wierdly... also it cant be something with my ears or vertigo if I went to my ENT and he said it was anxiety.. this is very frustrating... my anxiety level is definitly still really high i can feel it... but I cant get rid of this dizzy off balance feeling that is constantly bugging the crap out of me.. im passing these neurological tests and stuff but im getting no comfort except for right after it.... could this still be from the prozac i in my system and the heightened anxiety i am having i am thinking its a tumor now .. my ent specifically SPECIFICALLY said its not a brain tumor causing you to be dizzy. UGH this is horrific.. one big vicious cycle

Aw valleyplayer, I thought we've been through all this  :angry-smiley-034:
No brain tumor!  Post back when it's been over 4 years, then that would have been longer than mine lasted and THEN you could worry, until then, go fishing tomorrow!  :action-smiley-065:

Aww I'm dealing with the dizziness too - I feel like I'm alone in this. Starting to wonder if maybe the anxiety really does make it worse than it is. Why did you stop taking your prozac, was it believed to be the cause of your dizziness? Just wondering because my dizziness didn't start until I started taking prozac.

I would see an ENT physician as dizziness is their specialty.

Hey Marc,
 I saw an ENT 2 weeks or so ago, and he said the dizziness is not from my ears, or any brain tumor or anything neurological. He said he is 100 percent confident and he gave me an audiogram just for "peace of mind" for me. He said I will live another 80 years and im a health 26 year old with anxiety and dehydration from the drinking that caused a dizziness spell and that being said, was enhanced by quitting smoking and starting prozac, alot of chemicals going on and the dizziness is just from stress and anxiety. And even if im not anxious, or I DONT THINK I AM, it is still from anxiety. Ugh I have to believe him.

Nope no tumor. I think i have posted about migraine/anxiety related vertigo on this forum many times though (maybe not in reply to a post from you, Valley..cant remember). Look it up--not so scary or uncommon. :)
