4 months ago, I was shopping at a store. I bent over to pick something up and this huge pain just came out of nowhere in my lower back. It was so intense I couldn't straighten up again. After a minute or so I tryed to walk but I felt weak and I got dizzy then a blurry vision then I fainted. I woke up few miutes later with people all around me and I had this strong pain in my lower back. I went to the hospital and they said its an infection in the muscles of my back and the doctor gave my some medications and I was fine and normal in three days. The Problem started on the fourth day. I woke up from bed and I had dizziness and weakness. It got worse every day. After a weak I was more dizzy, weak, I felt sleeply all the time and I hated food so I went to a docter. After some tasets, he told me that I dont have a low boold pressure, anemia, diabetes or low red cells count. He gave me some vitamins and told me to come again after a month, but I got worse and went to another docter who said that I have infection in my inner ear. After taking a bag full of medications, I got better but the dizziness didnt go away. I went to another docter a month later and he said your inner ear is fine. I got depressed and started taking efexor*xr 75 mg ( A doctor told me I have take these as I lost the well of living and eating). The dizziness started to fade away. Untill It was very mild. It was there, but I could hardly feel it. I stoped the efexor*xr after 2 months or so of using them (steady decrease). The dizziness came back 2 days after I stoped the medication, but now it was stronger than ever. I went to an alternative medicine docter and he proformed this act on me (
Hjamp, similar to Chinese needles). I felt better after that and the dizziness got lower for a week. Since last Tuesday the dizziness Is back and strong. I feel realy bad right now. Im scared as ***l, I cant study, I cant have fun, I always want to kill my self. Can you please tell me whats wrong with me? Im so scared that all I dream of lately are nightmares.

My dizziness :
Its not a vertigo, I feel off balanced and out of focus, when it increases I see things blurry. Lately I also have a mild headache somtimes.

  • Unfortunately, I have no answers for you. I just wanted to tell you that I'm sorry you are going through this and that I know how hard it is! I myself have been dizzy for 3 months with no answers. I've had every test under the sun and still nothing. I have dizziness, fatigue, itching with hives, joint pain, headaches, vision disturbances, and no answers. I've been to so many doctor who just shrug their shoulders and say they don't know, with a casual attitude of oh well. NOT oh well, this is effecting lives, and I'd like to see you say oh well if it were YOU. OK I'm ranting now. Hang in there, and don't give up! Again I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Best of luck to you!
