Hello,

I have been researching like crazy about Menieres and BPPV, and many of my symptoms point exactly to either one of these, but I don't have the spinning and nausea like everyone else does. I have been suffering with this malady for fourteen years. I have been diagnosed from everything to anxiety to heavy metal poisoning, but no matter what I do, it's still there. I did have a remission for several years when I lived in AZ. I live in Utah now.
Here are my symptoms--maybe you can help me figure out if it is Menieres. BTW, tomorrow, I go to a Balance and Hearing Center.

Ok, these are my symptoms.

Lightheaded
off balance--feel like I am leaning to my right side all of the time.
Tinnutis
Fullness in left ear
Constantly stuffed up--even when I am on allergy medicine
Ear pain
Face pain
Tingling sensation on left side of face
Shortness of breath
Anxiety--because of the off-balance, dizzy problem.
Ear infections
Spacey feeling or Brain fog

I can barely drive to pick up kids from school and when I am in crowded places like Wal-mart, I panic. When I am home, sometimes, I can't even read, because of the spacey feeling.

What do you all think?http://images.bravenet.com/common/images/smilies/11_confused.gif
