I have had hearing tests and been tested for menieres disease, hearing test shows i have a slight loss of hearing and the menieres tests came back mostly negative for menieres. I had taken serc to see if it helped and it caused pain in my kidneys and gave me allot of anxiety for the entire week i was on them. I stopped taking them and the kidney pain and anxiety stopped and has not come back since (which was about a month ago) i have had some uncomfortable feelings in my kidneys before the serv but nothing i was concerned about.
The only anxiety i have had has been in my chest really and i didnt think that anxiety could cause all of the symptoms iv had including the horrible dizziness that i have been getting. Iv had the dizzy for over 10 years now and randomly over the years had some of the other symptoms but in the last 2 months they have all been very bad and i have taken allot of time off work as i work jn a warehouse with forklifts ect.
None of the doctors that i have seen have suggested anxiety so i would have thought not. I am waiting for a referral to see a neurologist.
Would someone not have said that in the beginning to me before i went and spent over $2000 on tests?
So having arnold chiari and all the above symptoms is not linked? I dont have stress in my life and i usually wouldnt experience any anxiety what so ever, so are you saying i shouldnt be worried about any of it?
My doctor did go over those type of things like anxiety and she pretty much ruled it out and everyone has thought that it is something more serious. If all of the symptoms i am experiencing is anxiety, how would i go about helping myself? Is there any way i can find out if it is anxiety or not?
I thought xanax was bad..
Probably not the road im wanting to go down.
So as the xanax would not fix the problems i am having with my ears, would you suggest this is an entirely separate problem and to see it separately?
My ear is full ,deaf, sensitive and i can hear allot of inner sounds. I can hear my breathing like its hollow and very loud tinnitus in both ears.. all of the ear symptoms is what everyone had thought to cause the dizziness. Would you not think this is related?
