Have anxiety. Is it psychological or physiological? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
not sure if this is psychological or physiological
the doctor feld i should be able to manage with vertigo exercises. But this has led to a feeling of anxiety in me
Anxiety is caused mostly by pyschological factors;
This is there for last 15 years though
the anxiety symptoms are feeling faint, feeling of palpitations and more when i am aware of myself
my thyroid test were normal. I have vitamin D deficiency though and on medication for last 4 months.
If you feel you are getting anxious very soon, in addition also experience tremors, sweating and palpitation, you need to get your thyroid hormones checked.
If thyroid test are normal, then most probably anxiety is related to psychological factors.
The treatment is either in the form of medication and or behavioural therapy.
how do i get rid of this then doctor ? I am on oral contraceptive for last 3 years and I wear contact lenses too
the ent doc suggested being off the pills and wearing glasses for some time. But this feeling has been there for really long
You will benefit from consulting a psychiatrist. He/she can interview you and start you on medications briefly.
any other test that you recommend to rule out any physical problems doctor ?
You mentioned that you have vertigo alone.
