Ans: Sounds like something else going on you better see the opthomogist for a good eye exam. Start with this and rule out eye issues

No: if you have the proper correction and myopia is the only diagnosis you should not be having these symptoms. Are there additional medical problems? Be re seen by tour ophthalmologist and referred as necessary. All the best.

Get eye exam: Start with exam by ophthalmologist. Correct nearsightedness and make sure no other associated visual problems. Anxiety, dizziness may improve or resolve.
