Does Anxiety Cause Dizziness?

This question comes up very frequently and the answer is yes and no. These two symptoms often go hand in hand and it is very real. The neural pathways for them are closely related so there is a physiologic basis. It is also very distressing emotionally to feel dizziness or unsteadiness which will cause the sufferer to feel anxious. These two symptoms can become a vicious cycle if left unchecked. Make sure to ask your PT if some counseling would be beneficial. Often it takes a collaborative approach to get things settled so that a patient can get full resolution of symptoms. Don't stop asking questions until you feel better!
