Hi everyone! I haven't posted on this thread before, but wanted too to share my story and see if there is anyone else out there that feels like this. In March, I developed a staph infection. It was only topical and not in my blood stream, so there was no bad risks and it went away. I did not know what staph was so I began searching on the internet and found out bad stuff about it. A few weeks later I suffered 2 panic attacks. A week later, I was having ear problems (popping in right ear, lightheadedness and then developed tinnitus (ringing). I found out that I had eustachian tube dysfunction. I can get tubes in my ears, but my ENT does not want me to until later to see if it goes away. Last week, my husband and I went on a cruise and had a wonderful time. When I got off of the boat, I was dizzy and felt like I was still on the boat. :eek: I called three different professionals to see if it was normal and they said it was. My husband had it too, but his has now went away and mine is still there. It scares me so much to have this rocking feeling thinking that I have something seriously wrong with my ears. I go to my doctor on Friday next week, but he will probably just say that it is my anxiety. I feel that is not fair. Why they want to blame everything on anxiety. Even at my restful state, I feel dizzy. Do others who suffer anxiety feel dizzy most of the time during the day? Do you take meds? Does the dizziness ever go away with anxiety? I hate feeling like this and I worry all of the time about my health and my relationship with my husband. I am afraid that I drive him crazy with bringing it up all the time and don't want to lose him. I am currently taking Paxil CR 12.5mg and have for a month now. Maybe I am not on the right med or a strong enough dose. I know the dr. will do the right thing, but just really concerned about feeling dizzy like this forever. Anyone with any insight or hope would be helpful. Thanks!

Oh, just a little background, I am 28 years old, female and had a completely healthy normal life before all of this happened! :bouncing:
