Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anxiety, Anaemia, Postural hypotension, Ear etc need evaluation...
The body's balancing mechanism is in the inner ear. An ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist is the one to see / If there are no clues, you have to be followed up by a neurologist and/or cardiologist...
You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / MRI / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
