On late october I started to feel the floor moving, it happened slowly over a few days until two weeks or so later I was spinning.
I do not have any nausea, any vomit (and I thank God for it!), I also do not have any nystagmus.
What I do have is a lot of anxiety, my eyes feels like they lose focus when these attacks occur, I also developed tinnitus, and like I am being pulled/pushed on the legs, shoudlers (a weird feeling of being pulled or pushed by something)
I went to a neurologist who did an MRI of my brain with and without liquid and found nothing, he told me my brain and cerebellum were in perfect functional state.
Went to an ENT who after a series of tests on my ear (putting water in it, looking at lines moving on the wall, spinning on a chair, measuring my neck movement etc) found that I had an ear imabalance.
She thinks its vestibular neuronitis... so she recommended Vestibular rehabilitation exercises, they include sitting on a chair, rottating and looking at an arrow on the wall... also moving my eyes, balance etc. (I was getting better, no longer I had anxiety and everything was going back to normal), In fact I was starting to forget about vertigo, all until three days ago where something happened that sat the whole thing off and now I am back to the spinning, the sensation in my eyes, the weird pulling/pushing etc.
This has gotten me down and today is my last session of therapy, I will speak to them about it though.
I try not to read too many sites because a lot of them are depressing and full of missinformation, but I keep finding a lot of people here who have been suffering from this for a long time.
Can vestibular neuronitis last this long? could it be perhaps menieres disease? (I have no history of it in my family)....
any help or comments could really be helpful
