Hi I'm a 43 year old man who has always been in very good health. One month ago I suffered from a very severe bought of vertigo... I couldn't even stand up. I was bed ridden for three weeks. I still feel dizzy and can't find my balance. Walking is difficult, my hands, arms and head shake uncontrollably, my vision is impaired especially my depth perception, my writing (which at one time was quite good) looks like that of a small child, and I have a small amount of spit when I speak.

I was hospitalized and had an MRI of top half of my brain taken, which came out normal. The blood tests that were taken were also normal and my blood pressure is normal.

The doctor has told me that this is a stress-induced or psychological problem. I'm not under all that much stress and this diagnosis doesn't make sense to me. Does anybody have an idea of what could be causing this?
