I can relate to your dizziness and anxiety since those are my main debilitating symptoms besides the dull headaches, neck pain, fatigue etc.,
I do take Xanax at times when my dizziness (non-vertigo), headachy, ear pain gets out of control and I have to drive somewhere. It sure brings down all my symptoms (just .25 mg). 2 or 3 times in a whole week.
I don't have to say how much Benzos can be addictive. Few days ago I had a panic attack when I was getting to close doctor's office and thought I was going to die (rapid heart beat, dizzy).
I took a bit of Xanax in the doc's office and all my symptoms came down for the rest of the day. Doctor thought PTSD.
I still think it is something to do with neck and ear and even my stomach. I don't know. But if I didn't take Xanax that time I would have ended up in ER which proven to be pointless so far. Unnecessary CT scans, EEGs etc., since they don't take risk based on my prior TBI history.
As Starr mentioned there is no quick fix for anxiety. Seems like Dmom had success with an SSRI. Though when I tried Cymbalta I couldn't sleep and got very suicidal!!
My cousin (a psychiatrist) wants me to try Buspar too. I am on Trileptal (anti-convulsant med) and planning to quit first since it is doing nothing (besides it helped smell disorder). Then may be try Buspar. Honestly I am sick and tired of all these meds. Xanax is the only thing worked for me but very concerned about addiction. Seems like Buspar works slightly different way than SSRI but for me only messing around with GABA in brain helps.
I mentioned before that Neuro-feedback helped me and have to go there again. Cost too much money though so I am postponing.
I started Meditation again though I cannot sit in Lotus position (gives me headache), so now I sit in a chair I meditate.
Keep us posted how Buspar worked if you plan to go for it.
