" You're not alone. I've experienced lightheadedness before, during, and after over the past two years. It didn't start happening until my panic disorder kicked in. I don't know what is causing it for you, but mine has been linked to my anxiety disorder. I know it isn't a pleasant experience, but it helps me to just laugh it off. Hope this helps. "

" I thought I was crazy. Sometimes I am not sure what comes first the dizzy or the bm. Usually a panic attack does give me stomach problems, but sometimes without a panic attack I get dizzy and it is just because I have to go to bathroom. Nice to know I am not alone.
What do they say...misery loves company :) "

" It happens to me everytime I have a full blown attack. Usually when I'm just anxious, my stomach woun't turn up. For some odd reason, being so lightheaded during the attack; I have to wait till it subsides. "

" I get the symptoms but not with BM. Usually my "head" is not panicking, but my body does so anyway. "

" Happens to me too - it's common. The only time I've heard of it happen to someone I know who didn't have panic disorder, was my Mom and she was in her mid-seventies then, and dealing with gall bladder problems, and breast cancer, etc. She had a lot to make her weak. I wouldn't concern yourself - it seems like we all get it! "
