Since around November, I have been experiencing lightheadedness - not anything like I feel I'm going to pass out, but just enough that it's really annoying at times. It's just always there in the background, along with neck pain and tension. I don't have headaches with it, but lately have been getting a nauseous (spelling?) feeling with it. It's a bit scary. They ran blood tests, and nothing shows up. Yesterday I had CT-scans done of the head and neck area...so we'll see if anything shows up there. In the back of mind lurks the fear of tumors and the like, although I don't have many of the symptoms generally associated with tumors and brain abnormalities. I know that lightheadedness is a well-documented stress component, and so I'm wondering if that's all it is. I've been under stress before though and never had this lightheadedness along with it. Any thoughts? I've been reading through many med forums and find that there are lots of people out there who also complain of the same sort of thing,
and have been through tests to no avail. Any ideas welcomed....thanks.
