I cannot stand still without loosing my balance. If I keep moving I am okay, or if I hold onto something (or someone) I am fine, I do not have dizziness, I am told there is nothing wrong with my inner ear and have had a head scan.......nothing. That's where they stopped or lost
interest. Please can you advise!

  • Hi there. Your symptoms sound a lot like Orthostatic Tremors. There is a great website that has lots of information about it just search for it in Google. You should check it out. Most doctors have no idea what it is. It is not common and after reading the site you'll know a lot more.

  • Wow.. same here.. since I've been suffering with chronic daily migraines for over 20 years, the Dr.'s seem to think that they've transformed into Vesibular Migraines, which this dizziness may occur even years after the last migraine attack (no such luck with that, for me).. Anyway, I've been placed on 100 mg of Anavert (Meclizine) p/day.. still, dizzy.. this has been going on for over 2 weeks with NO luck in the medications... I wish you the best... if you find out (if ever) let me know!!! This is AWFUL living like I'm gonna fall over all the time.. Rob
