I know exactly how you feel. I'm so sick of feeling dizzy headed and like I'm freaking drunk. I just called the ent office and waiting for them to return my call. I think I have another sinus infection but I'm sick of waking up feeling like *****. My eyes feel kind of jumpy too. I swear this is not anxiety cause my diagnosis was not anxiety. It was chronic sinusitis and allergies but my biggest problem is, I have to take the weakest allergy pill on the market which is Claritin and that really don't help very much. I can't take the strong ones cause I feel so out if it and worse. I give it a few more weeks and if no change I will be getting MRI. It's been 5 months and this is consuming my life. More things need to be ruled out and if this is all sinuses and allergies then something has to be done. I have no insurance which sucks cause I may need to see an allergist. When I feel this way it triggers my anxiety and makes it worse. My ear feels plugged right now.
I don't know what it could be in your case if it's better with Xanax or beer, sounds like anxiety. But if you are that miserable as I am, go see your doctor again to have more tests done. Blood work if you haven't already. Inner ear testing like we discussed. Have more things ruled out, then you can blame it on anxiety.
