Yes. Sounds like anxiety to me. Do you get migraines also?

Re: dizziness and sensitivity to light

Sensitivty to light and dizzy could be labyrinthitis, thats an infection of the inner ear, loads of Vit C (real stuff like Oranges or Strewberries), should get rid of the virus.

Many Thanks
Ashley

Re: dizziness and sensitivity to light

Kona88: When's the last time you had your blood sugar checked? You could have low blood sugar. Do the symptoms go away if you have a snack, juice or some type of sugar? I have a sensitivity to bright light and loud noises but I also have epilepsy which I contribute that to. If you were a woman I'd say you were in perimenopause. Even still, your hormones could be off slightly. Try to take some magnesium and Vit B6 which help your nerves and eat good meals and get enough rest.

Hi there, have suffered from a similar issue for a few years now so may be able to assist. Have you done a basic stress eye test? Get a small flashlight or stable light on your eyes in a mirror.....hold your eyes still and look at your pupils - do they continually keep changing size even though the light is constant? If so, this is generally a sign of internal stress. I did all the tests, CT scans, MRI's blood test after blood test, visited about 10 specialists and most said I was fine from their charts / results, but like you I had this weird dizziness which wouldn't go away, and couldn't walk down the street with the buses 'roaring' by like a jet plane.

First things first, get yourself a diary and start writing everything down. Divide the page up and jot down energy levels, times of stress, calmness etc., and quite critically, write down foods and drinks you consume at what time. Within a month, if you can spot patterns, it can help you to self diagnose a 'possible' cause faster than a doctor could. Lets be honest here, most doc's seem to only guess anyway (especially when it comes to slightly mysterious issues like this).

Hows your energy levels in the morning 30mins after waking? Does the dizziness kick in around then? (Your body kicks different things into play after 30mins). If so, this is potentially pointing at your adrenals. If it does happen to be related to adrenal stress, just remember that treating the adrenals may not be the correct course of action - you may be suppressing their recovery with an previously unknown (to you) allergy. We can develop allergies to foods we regularly eat without knowing it, so go and get an allergy test done and clean up your diet. Typically, if you can cut wheat and cows milk then most other allergies fall off the radar in about 3months (the time it takes for cells in the body to renew themselves), but you need to be vigilant in maintaining avoidance of the foods causing the allergy - which can be hard if your're going through a stressful time and its comfort foods like coffee or breads / cakes which are doing the damage. O and anti-allergy pills wont really work.....give your body a break and go back to absolute basics.

Cheers

Pete
