The two conditions: you mention can be linked. After your doc has ruled out any medial conditions, you can see a clinical psychologist who does exposure therapy for help. Make sure you find a well trained one, e.g., who is board certified or belongs to the Exposure and Ritual Prevention organization. Peace and good health.

Motion vs. lighthead: Vertigo is defined as "the sensation of motion in the absence of motion." this will lead to the feeling that either you are moving in some way (spinning is common) or your environment is moving. People with orthostatic hypotension do not typically complain of motion, rather they feel as if they are lightheaded or as if they might faint.

Possible: Topamax (topiramate) has been linked to increased indigestion and to pancreatitis. You should not assume it is the topomax, as this is not a benign drug and the symptoms could indicate something more serious. Report this to your pcp.
