I have been a fairly healthy individual (28 yrs old, normal weight)and when I go to the doctor they say that I am "healthy". However, I experience severe vertigo (like Imy body is constantly 'falling' to the right--a pulling sensation) that comes and goes in huge doses so that I will be fine for about 2 weeks then I will be bedridden for a week or so. I DO get pressure in my ears and I have tried those beign parox. positional vertigo exercises, but they don't seem to help. I had an MRI of my head in Jan and they said all is well.
STarting last TUesday night I began to have numbness in my right cheek and lip. The next few days I have had little circulation in my hands and feet and now on the left side of my face as well. Numbness seems tomove from side to side but I feel the most pressure on the right side all the way up into my ear where there is pressure. I feel very very dizzy--the pulling to the right side and I cannot concentrate on anything as my vision is all messed up. When I walk it feels like I have to correct my stride because I feel I am falling to the right side. I can get no help from neurologists or other doctors. It is utterly debilitating. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you for your help.

  • I had almost the exact same symptoms happening to me. In my case, I had a blockage deep within my ear canal that was throwing off my equilibrium. I went to an ear specialist, and he use a scope suction to remove the blockage and I haven't had a single problem since.
