Vertigo?: Dizziness can be part of many things - including anxiety. When you mentioned it feels worse at night I thought about positional vertigo. The inner ear fluid shifts when our head moves and can cause the sensation of dizziness. Hope this article will help you - at least start a talk with your MD about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benign_paroxysmal_positional_vertigo

I am reluctant: to just say it's all from anxiety. Consult with an ENT who specializes in or has an interest in working up balance disorders. You are in search of a diagnosis. One question. Has the anxiety treatment resulted in a significant improvement in your dizziness?
