Dizziness comes and goes for months at a time, sometimes with vertigo?

Posted , 5 users are following.

For the past five years or so I've been getting dizziness which will last for a few months and then go. I've been to so many doctors and ENT specialists but no one knows what's wrong.

18 months ago when I had it I also got a lot of vertigo, this time it's mainly dizziness with only a couple of spells of vertigo.

I think it's worse with movement and when I'm stressed or in a rush. I also get a clicking noise in the back top left of my head when I walk if that's linked in any way.

I just went to the doctor who was a a loss as to what he could do to help. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi there,

    Vertigo and dizziness is such a horrible symptom to have, and often doctors are at a loss for what's causing it. It can take ages to get a proper diagnoses, I completely sympathise. I'm a student who's gone through about 3 diagnoses for my vertigo problem, currently they're testing out migraine related vertigo.

    Have they tried for vastibular neuronitis? This is the infection of the vastibular nerve, it can be triggered by stress and can become a recurring problem. If they've not looked into this, it may be worth it! Also, have they looked into the possibility of a silent migraine causing these problems? Sometimes migraines don't always have a headache accompanying it.

    Best of luck with this, just keep at it and hopefully you'll figure out what's up!

    personally i feel the vertigo and dizziness is a symptom of indigestion issues. Try to correct it. check for gastritis,gallstones or low fucntion gb.

    Not a doctor however I feel more research needs to be done on anxiety.. It sounds like perhaps your subconsciously anxious.. Anxiety flares up a whole range of physical sensations.. Well I hope your symptoms subside.. x

    Have a look at vestibular migraine. Don't dismiss the migraine side...I did for about a year but it matches my symptoms...not a traditional idea of a migraine at all. If u are still suffering it is worth a look
