Dizziness brain fog vision feels off

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello everyone , for nearly 2 years now i have had these symptoms 24hrs a day , i just feel off , i get dizzy if i roll my head or just spin around twice , my vision is fine but it feels offish , i also have a constant feeling of light pressure in my head.

I have had various ct and mri scans that come up with nothing.

It all started after a respritory infection where i had pressure in my head for about 2 weeks , when the pressure subsided i was left feeling like this.

I have also had numirous vestibular tests and nothing out of normal was found.

My question is could this be anxiety or depression related bearing in mind the feeling is constant and never gets better or worse.

I do drink alcohol and smoke !

I have never had a panic attack!

I do get depression mostly after i drink.

Has anyone experienced these kind of symptoms?

Would appriciate advice , thanks.

    I have experienced those symptoms and still do. I have also had tests done on ears and brain and all normal. My gp says its anxiety but don't know anxiety can leave you dizzy all day everyday. I seen a psychiatrist a week ago and sh said I was suffering from depression and anxiety and upped my Zoloft from 50mg to 75mg and gave me klonopin to take everyday . what do you take ?

      The Zoloft I have been taking for 5 months now but just 50mg and just increased it to 75mg a week ago but before the increase the Zoloft has helped with the anxiety but I still have symptoms like the dizziness and off balance when I walk and dizziness when I sit and stand so I lay down most of the time. I have meclizine for the dizziness but it don't help at all so I just try and deal with it.

      I was also told to get my eyes checked for a condition called vertical heterophoria cause it has a lot of both our symptoms and I have an appt in April to see a otolaryngologist to do some more tests so its like I am getting a 2nd opinion cause something is causing these symptoms and every time I Google it it always leads back to the ears.

      i have been to an ENT and an ear specialist , they ruled out all the major things with the ears that could be causing this , I have had my eyes tested by an optician and my eyes are fine , will look into vertical heterophoria

      Oh so you have seen an ear specialist ? What kinds of tests did they do so I know what to expect when I go ? Did that Dr say what he thinks could be causing the dizziness ?

      They do various vestibular tests and will send you for a ct scan and possibly a MRI to check for inner ear conditions , unfortuneatly our symptoms can be caused by so many things they just dont know!

      Im also going to explore the whole anxiety / depression thing as well , i dont believe i am depressed or anxious but i need to try

      Thanks for the information. I hope I can get the tests done all in one day so I don't have to keep going back cause its taking me 2 months to get the first appt that's how booked up they are.

      I know dizziness is an anxiety symptom but don't see how it can make you dizzy everyday. I also have hearing loss in both my ears and someone told me that hearing aids may help with the dizziness but idk.

      I am gonna get some hearing aids and see if it helps any with my dizziness and go from there. I just want to go back to work cause I am tired of being confined to my home cause of these symptoms.

      I would wait to see the specialist , hearing aids might help with hearling loss yes but i doubt it will help your symptoms , there are many inner ear conditions that can cause your syptoms , best to see an otologist and he can help you , the one i saw was very good and he tested me for every inner ear condition known
