In brief: Yes yes depends

Dizziness, lightheadness and change in your sense of reality can occur with anxiety and is usually brief in duration, but some people have more persisting symptoms.
But medical conditions such as low blood sugar, low blood pressure and seizure like activity can do the same thing, so first its important to get medical eval. Anxiety can b treated: http://cpancf.Com/anxietydisordersbasics.Asp.
