However I rarely get any sort of dizziness now i’m coming up to 12 month stage, so i’m convinced their is a link.
Now I only notice it if I was really tired, or have a cold or any sort of sinus issues.
That could be a possibility, but I dont have the dizziness very frequently. Again, I am going to ask my Dr if he can get a lot of tests done.

Could have possibly been a combination of the stress of work and the increase in garlic. I only say that since you were having a busy day and were about to get on a train. Sometimes when you are in crowded places when there is a lot of CO2, it can kick in an anxiety attack.

I think you guys are right to an extent. By the time I got in the ambulance I was certainly in the midst of a pretty nasty panic attack. I’m no stranger to panic attacks, though, having been dealing with an anxiety disorder for about 5 or 6 years now. I don’t want to say that it was something else entirely because panic attacks vary in intensity and symptoms, but certainly I don’t think it was just panic. Again, I reckon it was probably a whole load of things coming out at the same time.
What I need is rest and relaxation. It would be ideal if I didn’t have to work 5 days a week so I could have a chance to gather myself together and allow my body to heal itself.
