    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Lightheaded for Almost 2 Years. Incurable?

    I've seen general doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, neurologists, audiologists, and sleep specialists. Even my psychologist implied that she gave up on me, pinning on "anxiety" as the problem for my symptoms.

    For 2 years STRAIGHT, I've been lightheaded with trouble sleeping. The lightheaded feeling is content, and lasts 24/7. I've been on 9 different medications, and none have worked well. My symptoms literally started over night, back in 2012.

    I thought I'd throw a dart in the dark and see if I hit anything by posting on this website. If you need any more information, please post here. I will be checking back regularly.

    Well I would suggest you to drink plenty of water and and eat something sugary. Your lightheadedness might be due to stress.
