Question Rocking~pulsating sensation while sitting still?

Hi. I am a teenaged boy living in Singapore. I’ve gone through an emotional breakdown somewhere in April. I’ve been suffering from a spectrum of weird symptoms from then till now.

Now, I have a weird rocking pulsating dizziness, most obvious when sitting down. Like my body is moving inside of me, faintly rocking back n forth. It is most prominent when I sit upright or (sometimes) standing still. Lying down cures it immediately, so does....

singing, dancing, exercising and leaning my head against something solid. Even swaying back and forth physicals while sitting seems to cure it immediately.

I am in a state where I must keep moving or I will feel dizzy.... I must keep walking, on edge, cannot sit, and cannot stand still. Must keep walking..... Pacing back and forth..... Walking seems to immediately cure the dizziness.

Is this anxiety? I have not been on a boat or any train ride this year so MDDS is automatically ruled out, plus a it seems MDDS generally effects women in their mid 40s. All inner ear tests are normal too. Can anyone help me? Thank you all so much.

I am no doctor but I think this is anxiety. I have had similar symptoms. I was given vertigo medication for it but i never took it. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: Rocking~pulsating sensation while sitting still?

did you ever figure out what was going on? I'm having the same problem but mine started while I was on vistaril. my head just feels like it is swaying back and forth inside all day everyday even while lying down but is worse when sitting still. I have had all the inner ear tests and a ct scan and mri and they can't find anything. I have been like this now for over 6 months. I can just feel downing
something is working right in my head. Please tell me you found out what it is because none of the meds for ear problems are working including mkclexine and valium.
