I've never had this until recently (over the past month). I will be climbing some stairs, and all of a sudden my head starts swimming (ESPECIALLY if I'm looking at the stairs if I'm climbing, usually on a case of stairs I'm not used to... gotta watch your step right??). This is usually hand in hand with as dreaded sense that I'm goign to fall and hurt myself. I've never had stair problems EVER.
Does anyone else have this?

Hmmmm anxiety can sure cause dizziness but if its just with the stairs might want to get your blood pressure checked. I had that prior to knowing I have high blood pressure... The workout of the stairs makes it rise quickly .
Just a quick note: I'm a physcially fit 24 years old female
It's not climbing the stairs itself, but the view of the stairs as I climb. If I close my eyes I'm fine, but if I'm looking at the stairs as I climb (which I do with unknown staircases or else I'll klutz out) I get so dizzy my nerves start to tingle until I know I'm safe.
