My MRI was normal but it showed i had a bad sinus infection and my DR said that could be causing my light headedness even though i showed no symptoms of a sinus infection. So i was prescribed an antiboitic for two weeks. I took it and im still light headed.
My best friend passed away around 9 months ago from hypoplasia of the arteries and was experiencing the same symptoms. There is no detection of this disease so i am extremely paranoid and literally spend ever waking hour stressing over this. I try to forget about it but it just isn't working. Does anyone have any advice at all?? thank you!
There are many things that can cause dizziness. Big ones are low blood pressure and withdrawal from medication. Also defiencies of certain vitamins and minerals. But the biggest one, by far, is anxiety.
You are not going to die of this. I know how easy it is when you have anxiety to self-diagnose yourself as having some fatal disease, been there, done that. Light-headedness is a major symptom of anxiety. Even if you don't FEEL anxious at the moment, you can still manifest the symptoms of anxiety because of the neurotransmitters in your brain.
Are you undergoing any psychotherapeutic or therapy for your anxiety? Have you gotten any blood work or blood pressure work done?
