I am hoping somebody, ANYBODY can help. About 5 months ago I started feeling slightly dizzy and didn't think much about it and it really didn't bother my everyday activities. About 4 weeks ago my wife wound up in the hospital and was in ICU for a week (this may be relative which is why I bring it up) and wound up with a pace maker so it was very stressful for a week. I stayed by her side 18 hours a day. Being strong for she and my sons was dragging me down but I held it together until 2 days after she got home then I fell apart. About 24 hours later my left ear sounded like a bee hive was in it and it lasted 5-6 hours. It has since diminsihed to an annoyance but has never fully gone away (again, I mention this as it may be relative). I wound up at the ENT the next day as I was concerned that the noise was there and was told after a hearing test and his looking in my ears, that he couldn't see anything wrong and it may be an inner ear infection but I was diagnosed with Tinnitus. Over the past 2 months I have become more and more dizzy. This has gotten progressively worse and each time I have been put on different medications. I went from an Anti-Vert medication, to dramamine, then the patch that goes behind your ear. We have tried an Anti-Viral medication and even tried Beta Serc (Benahistine) in case it was Minier's disease. Again nothing worked. I was only dizzy up until this point but no veritgo. Then they did an ENG to rule out another issue (which came back as normal) and since then I went from not only dizzy but to full blown Vertigo. I have had a brain MRI (normal) Blood work (again normal) EKG Sugar testing etc.. Everything has come back normal. I have now been put on Klonopin in case it was stress related but again I am seeing no change while being on it as well. At this point I have been told that everything medically that he could do has been done and it was suggested I see a Neurologist and start Physical Therapy. I have even tried natural herbs and vitamins and no change
If anybody has had anything like this or can possibly give me any guidance I would be in your debt as my quality of life has been greatly diminished because of this. I can not even get in my car and drive to a store and trying to walk around and do grocery shopping or any household chores either worsens my vertigo or makes me so nausiated that I can not function
