    Hi Kenneth,

     

    I'm sorry that your question seems to have slipped through the cracks. I'm sure you've found an answer by now, but I wanted to respond to you personally. Yes, dizziness is a pretty common side effect of anxiety. Of course, it's also a potential sign of many other conditions, so I'd definitely recommend talking to your doctor about your vertigo. When you see the doctor she or he will most likely want to know whether you were having a particularly anxious time when you experienced the dizziness. You mention that it happens upon standing from a sitting position, which may indicate postural hypotension. The best way to know for sure is to have it checked by your doctor.
