I mean can I like be diabetic and dying , a brain tumor those are what I'm thinking right now . I can't be having all mini panic attacks during the day causing the dizzy spell. Do you think if it was Menieres my ENT would have saw that? Why would he say no brain tumor causing dizziness just from audiogram and reflex ear canal tests. I'm sure he knows what he is doing but I am over worried

My husband is diabetic.  There is no dizziness associated with that (it's frequent urination, EXTREME thirst and when your sugar is high you are very fatigued).  I would guess the ENT would have brought Menieres up if he thought it sounded like that, but I guess he didn't.   Same with a brain tumor - he's not going to say you don't have one if he even had a 1% thought that you did. How about seeing a neurologist if you think you'd believe HIM more? Your problem is you need to be convinced.

Hey Valley,

Im feeling almost exactly like you are right now friend. Im convinced that I have cancer or something that just isn't right. While I haven't had any specific tests done, my doctor doesn't really think that anything is really wrong. I feel just as lost as you, so you are not alone. I wish I could do or say something to make BOTH of us feel better. All I can do is say hold on and fight for YOURSELF! Fight and never give up!!

In mental illness, we are not alone. Speak and you shall be heard.

Peace, Love, and Prosperity to all :)

Even if a neurologist told me I was fine I would feel good for a half hour then back to the worry. ENT specialize in seeing dizzy patients so this guy has to be right I need to stop doubting . It's when I feel pretty good in the morning and then later on I'll get a panic and dizzy feelin not sure which occurs first.

That is telling that you say if an neurologist said you were fine, you'd feel better and then worry about. That's textbook anxiety right there. I have had days where I felt really dizzy from anxiety... like room spinning and felt nauseous. I would close my eyes and lay down for a few hours just to feel better. You're not dying!  ;D

Giving up is always an option, but it is never my choice.

I get an uneven feeling with my anxiety. Sometimes daily, you learn to accept it and it doesn't set off your anxiety so much.  How many times have you had that feeling?  Have you ever fainted or fell down during an episode?

You're not dying. You just can't think of anything good to do.

Depending on your age you may recognize that movie quote.


In all seriousness anxiety is tough. I have been really bad lately. I was full on panicking on my way to a mens league hockey game tonight thinking I was too "sick" to play.  I literally thought I might die if I stepped on the ice. 

A couple hours later I feel great. I felt great on the ice and forgot the feelings of dread I had on the way.


Bottom line. If we let our anxiety rule our lives we will wake up one day and realize we wasted our lives in fear of actually living.

You are not dying. You will get past this as will I.

Just tell yourself...... If it was a medical problem you'd be feeling the dizziness more often, not at select times.  You've been checked out by medical professionals and have been found to be fine.  You've had these dizzy spells before nothing's happened, and nothing will happen. 



Personally I get the feelings at work or when out in public.  Sometimes at home but not as much as when I'm in public. If I had an ear problem it wouldn't know when I'm at home/work/outside.  So I tell myself its anxiety.  You may also want to look at hyperventilation syndrome on Wikipedia.  Sometimes when anxious people breath we take short shallow breaths which causes hyperventilation.  The symptoms cause dizziness and panic.

Rob, I never THOUGHT of that!  I've been telling valley here about my dizzy problems that have been going on and off since 2002, at one point lasting 4 years and I said since I never went to a doctor I was GUESSING it was anxiety or middle ear or ANYTHING with the ear - but no, I NEVER get the off balance feeling or "stumble" feeling at home - NEVER!  Only in stores, malls and walking on the street.  AND if I'm in an organized setting of people like church or meetings!  You made sense to me, I hope you get through to valley!
