Anxiety and panic attacks are fairly common ailments. You should seek medical attention. There is good treatment available using medicines as well as CBT therapy. Most people will find good relief once you find a good therapist.

If your doctor simply examined your external ears and looked at your "eardrums", the problem could be with the inner ear which controls balance in the semicircular canals. See an ENT physician for an exam and other testing (x-ray or CT).

This answer was in response to a question about constant dizziness, loss of balance, with a "normal ear exam"..it was not related to questions about anxiety.
