: I think I have been at the wrong healthboard. I used to suffer from panic/anxiety. About a month ago,
: I started to feel "crooked" like I was walking to the left and would topple over. It was always worse
: when I was on something uneven or standing in bleachers or on stairs. I just seem to be off balance.
: Then, I went to my doctor who used to treat me for anxiety, with herbs, and he said, it's just
: your anxiety kicking in, but I had no other anxious feelings. So, I was living with this and it

: headaches. So, is this something an ear doctor can treat? Is that the kind of doctor I should
