Have you discussed these symptoms with your primary care provider? Dizziness can be a symptom of an underlying condition and it needs to be explored further. Many conditions that could account for your symptoms are treatable. I encourage you to schedule an appointment soon to get evaluated and discuss possible treatment. Best of luck.

1) Of course it's not "normal." 2) You're not "paranoid;" paranoia means you have delusions of persecution. 3) This part of HealthTap is not for diagnoses. Even if it were, no one here would make the mistake of trying to diagnose you based on your described symptoms, which are useless because they point everywhere and nowhere. You need to see a real-life doctor who can do a history and exam.

First please have a complete physical exam by Doctor to know if you have an illness. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy for a diagnostic evaluation and for help. This will help you to know if you need medication from a Psychiatrist.
