Hello! I am 34 yr old mother of two (22 months and 5 yrs old). I have always battled anxiety and obsessive thoughts, and serious issue with germs. I have a family history of anxiety and depression and was witness to my mother's bipolar episodes from a young age. Anywho, on NYE I came down with the stomach bug, a few days post recovery I started to experience episodes of this fuzzy/lightheaded feeling in my head. I don't want to say dizzy because I never feel like I will fall, or pass out. My vision is fine. Sometimes it is constant all day, other times it comes in waves. I can be relaxed when I feel it, or stressed when it comes on after, etc. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. I have been to the ENT, my primary, and all blood work/physical shows fine. I do have an appt with a neurologist on Monday to dig deeper. My sister asked if I was stressed, and said sometimes anxiety/stress could cause this sensation. My BP is fine as well. I did test it when having this sensation as well. Is it possible this could be a reaction to axiety? I don't experience episodes that could line up with this feeling, it's just there, pretty much daily as of lately. This has been going on now for about 4 weeks. I am curious if this could be a sign of some underlying anxiety issues?View Thread
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. Is it possible to experience only a lightheaded/fuzzy feeling alone, withouth the other symptoms? is it possible to feel like this all day long, even when y ou don't feel physical stress or anxiety? We live 8 hrs from our family, and I work p/t, and my husband works f/t, so there is very little time for myself. I try to excercise as much as I can by jogging, so that is my time. But, since these issues, I don't do it when I am feeling this way. Yesterday I was able to get a jog in, but by evening the feeling in my head was back I am very worried it is something serious...View Thread
