i've been reading posts here, and I'm a little concerned. Most you the posts are about people having this dizziness thing and not getting well. This is scaring me a lot. I was just diagnosed with Vestibular dysfunction, whatever that means. I had a VNG test and when i got to the air in the ears part they started on the right one and the dizziness was so bad I could not finish it.
I have had this dizziness since last July 2015, I was doing some exercises and about 2 hours afterward, I had this horrid dizziness and have had it since. Could someone please help me with the symptoms and possibly tell me what is happening. My dizziness feels like its going thru my body as well as my head, it feels like im rocking and swaying, it happens when i'm sitting, standing, walking, laying down, when I walk i feel like i'm walking on marsh mello's and moving up and down, when i lean forward it get bad, when i shower its really bad, sometime i feel like i'm being pushed when i walk, i just recently started to get dizziness that comes with neck pain in the spine and headaches, i have nausea alot so I don't eat so well, i"ve lost about 3 pounds in the last month, I have anxiety and panic attacks, I don't sleep past 5 a.m, i'm constantly worried about this.
I am suppose to start therapy with the ENT in march, and I was really hoping it would help but from what i'm reading it doesn't. I haven't tried any meds accept for xanax which sometimes helps and the eNT said to take it when I need to. I am also hypothyroid and postmenopausal.
I work full time in an office, I can drive okay, I manage to go to stores but have alot of anxiety about it, because i'm araid something may happen. I have been seeing a atlast orthogenal chiropractor who is adjusting my neck, but not popping it, its done by a machine that sends vibrations into the neck. I have seen my GP who says vertigo and anxiety, my neuro did trigger point injections for the neck pain but that messed up my thyroid even more, and he says i have anxiety also.
Could anyone please tell me what this sounds like. I know its in the ear because teh air being put in made it so much worse when it was done, thats the only thing keeping me going is that its not a disease process, like heart disease or something.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you so much
