Hi;

I'm hoping some people here can help me to understand what's going on with me.

For several years I've suffered from extreme panic attacks and depression. The problem is that I get extremely dizzy and disoriented during these times. Even when I'm not actively anxious I'll have weeks on end of extreme dizziness and unsteadiness. I've read about depersonalization and derealization in regard to panic attacks, and I suffer from this also. I'm finding it extremely hard to function because of this constant feeling of being "out of it". It's like my feet aren't where I expect them to be. Sometimes the floor feels 3 feet higher than it is, and objects seem tilted or out of sorts.

Any help you people can offer is most appreciated. This disorder has become very disabling and I'm just trying to live a normal life.
