I have been suffering with Vertigo for 3 years now and I have been to 5 different doctors and nobody seem to want to help me. I use to drive and I can't anymore. I don't dare to. It all started 3 years ago when I got some kind of virus and I couldn't even get up without my whole world spinning. A lot of times I will be standing still and if something or somebody moves, it triggers the vertigo. I find myself stopping constantly and hold my head just to gather myself together so I can move. Right now I wear motion sickness bands on my arms so I can function, but they only help a little bit. Without the arm bands on, everything in the room needs to be still or it spins so bad for me I can't stand it.
I told all 5 of the doctors that I keep getting a flutter in my head when I the vertigo starts and they all looked at me like I was stupid and said nothing. The problem with doctors is, if it hasn't happened to them, they think you are making things up. I like all 5 of those doctors I saw to go the next 3 years with the vertigo that I have and see how they like it. The ENT says it's not and ear problem so he sent me to the Neurologist and the Neuro sent me to physical therapy. That does nothing for it. The other doctor put me on medication so I can't function if I take it. Where is the relief for me. Is there anyone else out there who has suffered this badly with vertigo or is suffering? Is there anyone out there with any suggestion?
