    You poor thing!   I'm sure you've tried everything under the sun......  Some of it sounds like regular sinus issues.  Do you take any sinus meds?  WhenI start to feel "swimmy" in the head, I take an allergy pill and that gets rid of most of the symptoms.

    Going to a chiropractor also helped me out a bunch!   When I start to feel pressure in the back of head and it doesn't go away after a couple of days, I get an adjustment and I feel so much better afterwards.

    Everyone here is very helpful.  I'm sure someone will have some adivce.

    Oh my gosh,how awful. I feel so sorry for you.

    Firstly, are you seeing an ENT consultant and if not, why not..It isn't something I've had but there must be something someone can do, you need your ears scanned for sure. Push your go if they are not cooperating.

    You are too young for this to affect you life

    Hi Brian. We're here to support you. You could be dealing with multiple issues that are affecting you. You do need to find a good ENT that you can trust. Weather can have a great influence on your dizziness and medication can help with that. Plus you mention sinus issues on a regular basis. I had nose surgery 5 years ago to correct a deviated septum because it was causing sinus infections and ear infections. I saw a big difference after that. As hard as it sounds, you need to figure out how to keep moving...even though lying safely in bed may seem better...it isn't. Good luck and keep us posted.

    What testing have they done so far? My instinct says get vestibular testing from an ENT stat! If those tests all come back clean then have a chiro do x rays. Im so sorry you are going througb this, dizziness when you are standing or walking or driving is so scary. im praying for you.
