Question: Ongoing dizzness..

 relax - Fri Mar 11, 2005 6:06 pm

Hi ive been here a while ack when i had chest pains which i later found out to just be cause by a reflux in my system caused by anxiety. Again im a 15 year old male not really over weight maybe 3 to 4 pounds eat well and my family has no back roudn of any heart related problems or really any except my grand mother has diabetes. Well i still once and a while get these chest pain near the left side of my chest, i have noticed that by ignoring the and trying to just relax with my anxiety they have slowly been happening less and less over time. What i have notcied that started developign now is that i feel like this dizzyness come over me once in a while at school or at home. What i mean by dizzyness is like i might feel inbalanced or that like i just finished spinning in a circle when i might put my head down at scool and close my eyes. I ge tthe sudden rush of me like spinning or something i cant really explin it but it just leaves me feeling dizzy and like unbalanced sometimes. The only things i have notcied aside of that is like a sort of pain in my rigt ear ONCE in a while like not very often. Maybe a lil in my right but more in the left. A few days ago after a shower i decided to try to clean my ears and noticed that this like redish kidna dark maybe even a lil blackish ear wax came out of my right ear. Anyways i just really don't kno if this might be caused by my anxiety or by an acid reflux or anything i would just really like some help. O and sometimes when im in bed i might get that dizzy feelign too.

User avatar Dear Relax,

Dizziness could be caused by ear problems caused by a virus such as the one that caues the flu or a common cold. It can be caused by neurological disorders as well, but you don't have any neurological symptoms, so, i vote for the favor of the ear problem.

It can also be caused by anxiety if you breathe fast during an anxiety attack.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.
