Unbalanced
« on: August 19, 2014, 03:02:03 PM »
Hi everyone I'm new here. I'm 16 & I suffer a lot from health anxiety. It used to happen only sometimes like a couple days a month but for the last 5 days I've been feeling unbalanced or feel like I'm moving. Could this be because I've been thinking and worrying about it? Idk because it feels real. Symptoms like this make me think there's something terribly wrong with me. I'm scared. Responses would be appreciated. Thank you!

Sounds like vertigo. Does it get worse when you move your head?

Dx: GAD, DESNOS, Fibro and other physical issues. Nothing serious, but of course my anxious mind will often find something very serious as with other things in my life. Anxiety is a fraud. Anxiety is not YOU or ME, it is an illness.

Of all the symptoms I had in the last few months of my anxiety recurrence, this is the one that freaked me out the most, mainly because I had never had it before , and as you say it does feel very weird when it happens.

If its any consolation I had it reasonably badly for about a month or so and then it started to fade away (which seems to be the pattern of all my recent physical symptoms), not too bad now to be honest, presumably because my brain has moved on to worrying about Bulbar ALS!

As always if it gets continually worse or very debilitating it may be worth going to the doctor, but personally I think it sounds like the usual anxiety rubbish, as frustrating as it is I think it is highly unlikely to be anything apart from that.

Not necessarily true. I have BPPV and have for years, which causes vertigo and has nothing to do with anxiety. Of course, it is not life-threatening.
