Question Anxiety causes dizziness??

I was recently diagnosed with Labyrithitis, and inner ear viral infection that can take months to go away. I've since been on-line and reading ALOT about this infection, and finding stories about people who never recovered from this illness, and although I'm only sarting weeks 3 with it, I am a nervous reck.
The symptoms of Labyrinthitis is dizziness. Now I'm trying to relax, knowing that it will probably just go away on it's own, but I seem to be getting more and more dizzy when I think about it. I am not sure if the light-headedness is from the ear infection, or if my anxiety is not allowing me to get passed the dizziness? Of course i get an occasional real dizzy spell that I know if from the ear infection (I start anti-biotics today) but I'm nervous about it all the time. When I'm not paying attention to it, I'm usually ok, but as soon s I think "Am I dizzy?" I feel dizzy almost immediately.
I think I have GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), but I'm too afraid to go to my Doctor for a referral to a Psychologist cause I'm embarressed.
Can I have your honest opinion?

Re: Anxiety causes dizziness??

My advice to you, get off the internet and stop reading about it, trust your doctors, it will go in time - don't get to the point like so many people on this forum (including me) constantly checking for reassurance - you must stop it now otherwise you will start with/to get GAD - take my advice log off this and eveyother forum

god bless
