Can anyone please help? Female, age 26.

Last September out of the blue, I had an acute episode of dizziness lasting about three days, i thought it was an ear infection but when they were checked, they were clear. Since then, this has ahppened on and off maybe four or five more times. In addition to this, I am constantly tired and yawning, although I go to bed early and have no problems staying asleep. Sometimes I also get a dull headache across the back of my head too.

Iron, thyroid, diabetes etc all been checked out and nothing.

Has anyone any ideas? I'm getting progressively more worried and scared.

  • What prescriptions are you on? I've had some of the same stuff (see my thread on dizziness for 7 days). Found out it was reaction to Effexor or Lexapro. Then today, my co-worker told me she had the same thing happen several years ago with Paxil. Just an idea. :confused:

  • Hiya have you thought about Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD or TMD), or TMJ syndrome,as i have had the same issues now for over 4 years and i was diagnosed with sinus which i had a opp for, this seemed to help for a while but it returned and i was then diagnosed with M>E/fybromyalgia and pain meds, nothing worked for me, years on i found it is my jaw causing me problems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temporomandibular_joint_disorderIt affects many parts of the head and does cause fatigue too.:(
