I get lightheaded while standing in one place and feel like I am going to fall. I went to the general physician and the doctor ran blood tests, metabolic panel, lipid panel, glucose and thyroid. The tests came out normal. The cholesterol test showed that triglycerides were high (347). The doctor prescribed Niaspan and Aspirin. My symptoms did not go away. When I went back to the doctor, I was sent to see a Neurologist. The Neurologist did a few physical tests and said that it was not a neurological condition. Then the next step was to get a brain MRI. MRI came out normal. I have had my eyes checked also. The doctor some how did not send me to the ENT specialist.
While I feel lightheaded, I feel fatigued and sometimes panic or lean on something stable if nearby. The fear that loss of balance may happen at any time while walking is annoying.
Any comments/ideas as to what may be causing this?
