Anxiety and Sensations of Falling



May 30, 2010
I get weird feelings like that feeling you get from travelling in a lift afterward. So I might be sat in front of my computer and I'll feel, very briefly, as if I'm lurching forward, like my chair slipped or something. It's really disorienting and I can't tell if it's related to anxiety, which I have, or perhaps something more serious. I recall speaking to a GP about it in the past, but they just said anxiety. GP's aren't much help anyways. Thanks

If any health problem persists, you should always get it checked out. You do seem to have a health problem and it's persisting so I would go to your GP again and keep going til you get examined. I've had severe anxiety which never resulted in me having a falling sensation so your GP can't exactly say that it's a common symptom of anxiety.
