Can anxiety make you really dizzy and feeling like your going to faint I have really bad anxiety how do I get rid of anxiety and why does it happen?

Anxiety: Makes us feel all sorts of things. We all experience it & it normally is a warning that something is not right (stress). When we have anxiety in the absence of a real problem, it can be difficult to handle. You may need the help of a counselor & some even need occasional or long-term medications to help control extreme anxiety.

See a cardiologist: You cannot stay scared the rest of your life. More importantly it is important to know what that rhythm was and perhaps capture it on a Holter monitor or Event monitor. Then either reassure you or treat/manage it.

Will amoxcillin get rid of mucus in sinus cavities? On day 3 of med, still feeling dizzy and bouncy when I tilt head down.

Will amoxcillin get rid of mucus in sinus cavities? On day 3 of med, still feeling dizzy and bouncy when I tilt head down.

Steroid inhaler: An antibiotic might be appropriate if one has a yellow or green nasal discharge, especially if associated with painful sinuses and/or fever. If the discharge is clear, sinuses are pain-free, and there is no fever, a more appropriate medication might be an inhaled steroid such as Flonase (1-2 inhalations every 12 hours for7-10 days). If symptoms persist, see your md or an ear, nose and throat doc.

How to get rid of dizziness on standing? Taking hctz (hydrochlorothiazide)

How to get rid of dizziness on standing? Taking hctz (hydrochlorothiazide)

Blood pressure: Dizziness on standing is most often a sign that the blood pressure is too low when standing. Have your physician check the blood pressure lying down, then immediately after standing (without sitting in between) and one minute after standing. A drop of 20 mmhg in pressure from lying to standing is significant. Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) causes you to lose salt and water - drink lots of fluids.

Any way to get rid of dizziness, sleepiness caused by invega (paliperidone)? 3mg

Any way to get rid of dizziness, sleepiness caused by invega (paliperidone)? 3mg

Possibly: First insure that the sleepiness doesn't have another contribution, from something other than Invega (paliperidone). Insure that your day-night cycle is optimized with respect to a full night's sleep, timing food properly, and exercise. Then insure that you are taking it at night, and that you require that full dose, as opposed to a lower dose. Then you can consider an alertness aid, like NuVigil.

How do I get rid of dizziness, light headed, pressure in face and upper neck pain?

How do I get rid of dizziness, light headed, pressure in face and upper neck pain?

Lightheaded: Lightheaded and dizzy could be symptoms of dehydration, but you usually don't see that associated with pressure in the face and upper neck pain. You could have allergies, which would give symptoms of nasal congestion, clear nasal drainage and watery itchy eyes. Upper neck pain can cause "cervical vertigo, " which can be treated with stretching and anti-inflammatories. You could try anti-histamin.

I feel so dizzy all the time. How can I get rid of it?

No short answer: Inner ear problems can cause acute dizziness. Chronic inner ear weakness will cause dizziness mostly with movement and holding still is helpful. Neck problems, low blood pressure, medications, anxiety are all causes of chronic dizziness. Evaluation can be extensive to, determine the cause. I suggest seeing an ENT especially in neurootology. Getting rid of it requires accurate diagnosis.
