Dizziness, Balance issues, Vertigo

Posted , 9 users are following.

So I am on week 12 now of dizzy spells/ vertigo. I was fine one day and we traveled to some friends house in Abalene TX. I woke that next morning and stumbled around. I thought I was dehydrated or hungover. I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I have been a fitness trainer for 7 years now and ate pretty healthy. I have had blood test, hormone tests, ear exams, vertigo manuevers done, MRI. Everything has come back fine. Since week 4 I have cut out all gluten, peanuts, soy, rice, corn, caffiene (made the pressure in my head too much) and very limited alcohol (1 glass of wine with my wife every friday night). Antivert did nothing, and I have found nothing to relieve the dizzy symptom.

This has led me down a path of research, and I am lost. I feel my balance portion of my inner ear is off hecause I feel like I am bouncing all day, my workouts make it worse, and when I try a 1 leg balance test, I almost fall over to my right every time. My body just folds in half when I try this.

I see a Neurologist on monday and hope he can shed some light. I have had good days and bad days, and try to pin point triggers, but there seems to be many. The mornings are rough, and this feels like I have lost my identity and dont know what to do.

Has anyone had any similar experience? Any suggestions?
