I am new to this site, but was researching my symptoms and came across this site. So far I love it. Well here is my story: In April I was picking up my son from school and got this weird feeling in my ear like there was water in it and I became very dizzy, how I drove home i dont know. Went to the Dr. and she said I had water in my ear and it was knocking my balance off. She gave me a antibiotic and sent me on my way. That didnt work, I went back with different symptoms I ws not dizzy I was very light headed, with pressure in my head and around my eyes. I was sent to a eye Dr and they said I had perfect 20/20 vision. I was then sent to a Ears nose and throat Dr who said I could have TMJ and that could cause the symptoms I was having. I was also just at the neurologist who could not find anything wrong, told me it was anxiety, which I have been suffering from for over 20 years. But I had it under control, with breathing. So now I am wondering if anyone out there knows what it could be or have the same symptoms, could it be anxiey? I also went for a MRI but had a panic attack and had to leave before they got any images. That was because I begged my Dr for a test to see if I had a brain tumor which I was convinced I have. I do have seasonal allergys but never like this. If anyone has any info or advise it would be greatly appreciate it, Thanks
I also have light headedness with my anxiety. I was the same way at first. I thought it was my ears, my sinuses, tmj, and anything else I could find on google. I started taking Zoloft and Aivan and it is getting better. It used to be almost all the time and now is only for a little each day.

TMJ is something I have, I hold tension in my jaw and it causes headaches and eye problems, these get intense when I'm having a panic attack or nervous. Brain tumours usually cause vision problems and headaches more often than dizziness...
