I've been having this light headed/disoriented feeling for about a month now and it won't go away indefinitely. It comes and goes sometimes at random times of the day and sometimes it doesn't happen till the next day. It comes with minor headaches but they're not painful and they go away quickly. I had a history of tonsillitis and I read somewhere that it could lead to headaches, I'm wondering if thats it? I took medication for that but could it return? Or are there any other bacterial infections that could lead me to having these symptoms? I don't have any heart problems, asthma, or have I ever had these symptoms in my life. Any answers would help, thanks!

I went around undiagnosed for 4 months, and it was probably the worst time of my life. I was unable to walk, due to the toxins making me so dizzy that if I didn't watch my feet take steps, I would crash into the ground. I had a headache unlike anything I've ever experienced. I lost 25 percent of my body weight, due to anorexia caused by toxins. I even ended up in the emergency room with heart attack symptoms.Sorry for rambling, but I wanted to show you that the longer you wait, the more you risk worsening infection, if present. If you took antibiotics, you have eradicated normal gut flora, and you should ask your doctor to order 3 stool cultures and C Diff Toxins as well. In addition, make sure you get a CBC and CMP, mainly to check on your Lymphocytes, Granulocytes, WBC, and to make sure all other findings fall within the correct parameters.

  • Sounds like Vertigo to me. Have you gotten checked for that?
