I'll be as breif as i can with this story on my problem here....
Around 9 years ago I went out drinking, had a great night came home went to bed, before i fell asleep I felt a "physical" head/brain shift, like something swept through my brain and changed something. I didn't feel anxious. The next day i woke up with dizziness that didnt go away. No vertigo, no nausea, no balance issues whatsoever. i practically ignored it for a while then started to worry but it started to dissapate after around 4-6 weeks and over trhe space of say 3-4 days it comepletely vanished!
Fast forward 9 years to Janurary 5th 2015, I ended my long term relationship, then on March 26th I went out drinking and returned home, went to bed and the very same thing happend in my head and then the constant perpetual dizziness for just under 2 weeks and it started to go! I was almost 100% normal and went out drinking again......(yes I know, i know) But this time it has stayed to the present day with extra symptoms, ever so slight fulness in my left ear, fulness/pressure in my head and eyes not bad though. No bad headaches if at all. and worst of all I have terrible anxiety on top as it hasnt gone away. But the anxiety was there pretty much from the start. During this period i gave my dog to my ex. I felt I had no choice and the dog needed stability. I mention this becasue i wonder it has effected what has happened. I.e is this all anxiety?
I dont know anything anymore, but i do know that i cannot live with this dizziness for the rest of my life. My doctor prescribed my prozac which i have not taken, but i have started taking Mirtazapine, which has helped me to be able to eat and sleep as i wasnt much and lost lots of weight which i cant afford.
I also have decided seeing as the wait is two months or so for an appintment with an ENT to go private initally which is this coming thrusday 21st may. I'm hoping if he doesnt see/find anything that he will be able to refer me to an neuro-otologist? for further testing. But I have no idea if it is related to my ears as have no balance issues, tinnitus, pain or anything from my ears.
Is there anyone out there that can shed any light wehatsoever on these symptoms, Ive read so much lately, menieres, labrynth, auto immune, anxiety etc etc etc, the list goes on. But becasue I do not have an balance issues im sooooo confused. Also read confusing contradictions to wether my anti anxiety will help or not.
I leave this post open to whomever is willing to talk to me.....I have also posted this in an ear forum just incase.
Many thanks in advance......x
