I've been having vertigo since Feburary, plus (at the same time) feeling nauseous and a headache. The headache (and to a lesser extent the naseua) continue past the dizzy spell. For a while I was having them several times a month, to one every other week, to not one for an entire month, back to every week. Today and yesterday, I had 3. I've been to 5 different doctors (PCP, ENT, endocrinologist, neurolist (2 MRIs), opthmologist) and none of them have helped. I've tried Allegra for excess fluid in my ear (didn't help), to multiple MRIs but found nothing, to exercises b/c of supposedly positional vertigo (did absolutely no good).

Has anyone ever had this happen to them? I'm at a loss of what to think/do next. It's getting ridiculous having to wake up every morning and hope I don't get vertigo that day so I can go about my routine (college/working).

Anyone have any experience with this?
