Go see ur family doc: Unfortunately, you didn't mention/list your medications, aside from omeprazole, some of which can cause fluid retention. Too much blood pressure medication can also lower BP excessively leading to dizziness which can then cause anxiety. So tell your family doc about your concerns and ask about adjusting your medication regimen. Good luck!
