So I am very sure this started when I had an horrendous bout of tonsilitis and got my ears syringed whilst they were still sore and infected. (the nurse didn't check until after and then said it probablies shouldn't have been done)!
Not long after the dizziness started. I can not remember much about the beginning it as it's been so long but I do know that most days since then I have never felt completely steady, I get different feelings, woozy or off balance, cloudy, almost as if I am in a bubble and not reality.
This went on for 6 months solid with the severe dizziness coming on.
Now 11 years on I am a huge anxiety sufferer down to this, it has affected me socially and in other ways.
For the last couple of years I have gotten more used to it and started exercising reguarly, getting out and having fun and not letting it rule my life.
I normally get a couple of bad turns a year and in between I feel unsteady.
Now I have all of a sudden have 3 severe boughts in less than 2 weeks.
The symptoms are as follows:
I mostly always get it during the night and it wakes me, if I turn my head a certain way (sometimes just lying flat) I get this awful swirling which knocks me sick and I have to turn a certain way or move my head into a specific position to stop it and I have to stay there until it passes.
If I get up during this my whole head feels like it is spinning in various directions and it then becomes an interesting walk to the bathroom.
If I stand for long enough it's as if my head figures out where I am and the intense spinning stops.
It also affects my eyes a little during these episodes, feels like they struggle to focus.
Any ideas what this could be. I need to find a way of reducing it or even stopping this. I don't want to let it ruin my life when I have just found a way of coping.
