Hi Mitchb I have the light headed disconnected feeling on a regular basis also. As a stay at home mom of twins it is scary. I have taught my kids what to do in case of an emergency and I just continue to work on my breathing and relaxing. Hang in there and maybe talk to a doctor if at all possible to see if there might be some help for you. Hugs ().

that has been one of my main anxiety symptoms for years, and i didn't know it. i thought maybe it was hormones, allergies, blood sugar, all that stuff. it would happen a lot when i was shopping. sometimes i'd go sit in my truck and wait for it to go away, or wonder if i should go to the doctor, call someone to drive me home, etc. i don't get it as much now, but when i do, it helps to know it's just stupid anxiety, instead of freaking out.

How is your breathing? If you are taking more rapid shallow breaths it will produce that lightheaded feeling. Next time you feel lightheaded notice how your breathing is. I started doing deep breathing with my therapist and I've noticed a difference where I'm not lightheaded as much. Just correcting the "anxious breathing" can make other panic/anxiety symptoms go away. Improper breathing can produce the dizziness/whoosh/lightheaded feeling. Are you anxious when you notice the lightheadedness?

I do breathing exercises too. They do help, i just need to remember to do them more. They sometimes help me relax and sleep at night too.

I feel the same way almost daily and I also have kids 4 of them my doctor told me to take motion sickness pills they have helped but I wouldn't take them without talking to your doctor first . And slow breathing helps my issues is leaarning in through the nose out the mouth sounds weird I know but I always seem to notice when I feel that way I'm breathing in and out my mouth .

I have felt light headed and dizzy and have had blurred vision and throwing up for years

at a time.. Right now it has cleared up thanks to a new drug I just started;

Seroquel. Stopped it dead in it's tracks.
