It might be a condition called Minier's Disease (not sure of spelling) that causes dizziness and tinitis, or ringing of the ear. But you'll have to see a doc to find out for sure.
Honestly it can be stress related. Are you on any meds for anxiety? I think a good SSRI would do you some good. Also, maybe you should pick up yoga, or start jogging, excercise is really good for stress. I doubt its a brain tumor, those are really rare, howevr..they're not impossible. i'm just saying, all this happened when your child was born, and you said that you hada history of anxiety, so just looking at the clues
just breathe :) you'll be okay, i promise, I have a constant ringing in my ears, (for longer than 6 months, more like...years) I get tension all over, sometimes i'll be sitting, and then i'll become conscience of how tense my muscles are, and I have to actually MAKE myself relax and loosen up my muscles.
stress is hard to deal with. However, you're not alone.
let us know how things go, this is a great community. good luck!
Your not losing the plot!!! I know its hard but you have to try and focus on something else. All the physical symptoms you have could all just be anxiety, i mean you should read some of my old posts, I had pretty much completely lost it at one point, I couldnt do anything I was having so many weird sensations and symptoms and I still am to this day!! I bet you any money that your scan will come back normal, just as mine did a year ago.
Message me if you like,
Hope you feel better soon.
As to Skelly's comment, don't rush to be on ssris, especially if you're breastfeeding. Better to first see a doctor and rule out a physiological cause, then see a therapist and deal with it that way if it's not physiological. Meds will be there if you need them, no need to rush into that thicket just yet.
I agree with paxiled,
You should rule all other things out, seek therapy. therapy is a powerful tool.
and if youre breastfeeding, then i'd definitely be careful with SSRI's
Feel weird all the time like dreaming and things aren't real but I know they are. I have had this for a few years been to so many doctors no one can help they all say there is nothing wrong but know there is and it sounds just like yours my eyes are starting to go squint every now and then but as it happens people say my eyes look fine but my vision goes double as if I am squinting them please let me know if you find anything cause I gave up already.thanks and good luck
