I am a 29 y/o female, and have been dealing with what I call "episodes" for 4 years!!!! These episodes are very acute, I have no warning that they are coming. I have tracked and journaled these and there is NO pattern...they happen randomly through the seasons, weather changes, menstral changes etc!!! The epsiodes also last for 2-3 days, are constant and with no change. I am completly conscious during these, and am mostly pain free. What is an episode?? I become absolutley dibilitated with dizziness....Not "spinning" but falling, like I'm in a funhouse, and the floor is moving and I am crooked. I only get some relief while lying completely flat (where I stay for the duration), it is extremely difficult for me to even go to the washroom. These are very intense, and have affected my life!! In between episodes i am not ok...i am "dizzy" ever day, and generally feel like junk!! I am currently off of work for investigation, as I have been misdiagnosed with migraines and labrynthitis and have taken numerous meds for dizziness and migraines. I have had MRI's, CT's, ENG's, caloric testing, eye testing and blood work. I have ventured down other paths but keep getting brushed off my docotrs and specialists. They cannot find a reason for this and " I don't fit any diagnosis". I am out of options and need to be healthy again!! Please help me!!
