Constant/daily dizziness?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Anyone else have daily dizziness? Like the kind that never goes away? I mean, some days are better than others but it's still always there. I always feel "off" and "unwell".

I was dx w Menieres in June this year after 11 years of idiopathic vertigo. However, I've never had the dizziness like this. That constant feeling of being "off". Which would probably explain why after 11 years my ears finally show there's something wrong.

But am I alone out there? And sorry if I've already asked this, I can't remember because of brain fog.

Thanks.

    I am right there with you. I was prescribed an antidepressant and i have to say it has helped a little. I still feel dizzy and even faint at times but this has helped me quite a bit. I have been dealing with it for 10 years so i know how debilitating it can be but you are not alone.

      The trouble,is drs use anxiety as a 'cause' of dizziness and i am very quick to,point out i was not anxious before i was dizzy, only after!! Anxiety cannot be a diagnosis,,it,is an effect having to,deal,with the physical,side of the illness!!

      Yes! That's what I had to tell doctors for years and they never believed me! It made me so angry. I never had anxiety or panic disorder until my dizziness  came along.

      Ridiculous is nt it! They are meant to be drs!! I dont bother with them any more. You should all read 'The Brain that Changes Itself', all about plasticity of the brain. PM me if you want author and details

      That's why they call it practicing medicine. Lol. They don't actually know much less it's simple. If your leg is broke you know it. Don't need 8 years of school to tell you that.

      Why most of the best primary health providers are just nurses. They have more first hand contact. More experience. Doc spends 5 minutes with you and then goes to his book knowledge to treat. Nurses treat people everyday, all day.

    Daily dizzy since 30 years. Sensory distortion. Hearing loss. Dx left peripheral vestibulopathy. To say its a nightmare would be an understatement.

    Same here. Been years since I have been dizzy free. Had a episode of vertigo weeks ago. Since then been real dizzy. Small bouts of vertigo since as well. Been to docs. Did 2 rounds of steroids. Did nothing. Went to ENT he sent me for VNG testing. Waiting on results. Been dealing with this for about 10 years. This time it's decided to stick around. Dizzy 24/7. Can't work. Stumble around the house.
