Constant but small to moderate vertigo with a hard spell once a week of feeling I'm about to faint.
Slight Focus problem
Occasional Lightheadedness but rarely
Comes in episodes but always "dizzy feeling"
Antivert seems to help cut it down 80% it does help me
No fever, numbness, sick feeling
No sleeping problems
I do have some anxiety and depression ( I have no reason to be, so its something in my genes )
I do have some of the BPPV symptoms like laying my head to the right or left will cause my vertigo to get high for about a min then calms down. But I have a constant low to moderate vertigo throughout the day.
I've tried many things for it. I took medication for a middle-ear infection and my dizziness and took the pill for 2 times a day for a week but I stopped and a day later my dizziness picks up.
ER doctor said I had Ottis Media? before ER I visited a Chiropractor and I had a pinched or a nerve that wasbeing rubbed along my bone in my neck. After a month it calmed down but still had it.
I really do not know what is causing it. I had my ears cleaned @ 65 bucks a pop, Inner Ear tests and 1 MRI done 5 years ago ( yes, Ive had dizziness problems since 2002, now 09!
I've tried exercises of my mind to lesson the impact but its a battle I can't win. Ive been to so many doctors and at least 3k not including the mri and eng test than state insurance paid when I was 17. now 21.
I just do not have that much money to doctors and nothing comes from it. I get mad by paying nearly 100 bucks a vists ( yes, cause doctors always insist on test, copay insurance is 25 bucks but wont cover the tests ) and it makes me depressed.
My dizziness issues turn into more than just a "dizzy spell" after 6 years of ***l. I really need an answer. I give the doctors my symptoms but all say " its in your head" or " why are you so nervous, your making yourself dizzy" etc.
I should spin them In a desk chair and spin em for 30 mins then stop and then tell em the same thing.
I need help and a answer please!!!!!!!!!!!!
