Anxiety symptoms??
Dec 19, 2006

I have been experiencing some very alarming "waves" of dizziness/vertigo/light-headedness/left-sided headaches for the past few weeks along with numbness in my right hand that comes and goes and it is getting progressively worse as time goes on. I am especially dizzy and out-of-balance upon awakening and have to hold onto things in order to avoid falling over. The dizziness is almost like a strange buzzing/vibration sensation in my head/brain (mostly on the left side) and can be very frightening at times. I don't want to "diagnose" myself but for years I have had a head-jerking tic as a result of my Tourette's (or whatever you would prefer to call it) and I was also involved in a serious automobile accident several years ago in which my head smashed through the windshield and caused some "cervical impaction". I don't know if these symptoms are caused by one or both of these things but I would REALLY like to have another MRI of both my head and neck as well as a full blood work-up if that is at all possible - at least to rule anything serious out and to give me some peace of mind.

My history...

* Male/44/medium build
* Alcoholic (currently sober for 3 days and am trying to quit)
* I've suffered from anxiety/panic/hypochodria/OCD, etc for 14 years
* I have Tourette's Syndrome.

I can't think of much else to say. any thoughts on this would be worth it's weight in gold to me as I am wondering if other anxiety sufferers deal with these same symptoms.
