Dizzy 8 years

Posted , 9 users are following.

I was just wondering how many others were contemplating offing themselves.

I've been dizzy for 8 years. No caffeine, alcohol, blood work is fine minus slight anemia and I take iron pills.

HELP

* CT and Mri came back clear too

    yEs!  But in reality I know I won't.  hAve you tried any alternative things?  I have no faith left after  my 5 years,,with regular doctors any more.  I'm older and it's,hard enough dealing with aging ,,without is,on top!  if I had plenty of.money  I wouldn't be bothering with regular medicine, but all the other stuff costs.  iMhad my hopes,raised not  long ago when I read a book that talked about something called Brainport.  Google it and you'll see why.!

    I'm dizzy for 4 yrs so I know your pain. I am going to throw a few weird things out. I have read about Wisdom teeth being the problem for people like us. If you still have them maybe that is the problem. I was diagnosed with Vertical Heterophoria which i an eye issue. Look it up on line. One last thing is the SCM muscle in the neck, when that is tight it can cause problems. There is a forum for peole like us called dizzy times, look that up as well. I hope we all feel better soon.

    Hi Sarah. I completely understand how you feel. This is so hard to deal with. I live in the United States and it's become very expensive. I often feel trapped in a never ending cycle of chaos. Finding the right physical therapist, the right audiologist, the right orthopedic doc, and the right ENT has made a big difference for me. My physical therapist is my gate keeper because she's the one who has the best Handle on how I'm really feeling at any given time. She is also my advocate with all my other doc. She validated my dizziness as a vestibular disorder when my first ENT gave up and said to come back in 4 weeks if I was still having problems. Sometimes I feel like it would be a relief to just not exist anymore, to not have to go to work and try to pretend I am okay when it's obvious that I'm not. even working at all is a huge challenge. Please hang in there. You have us. Mary

    Hi Sarah,

    I'm so sorry that you feel so bad.

    I think that doctors completely underestimate the drain that this condition has on your mind and spirit

    I have noticed that if I am stressed, my dizziness immediately gets worse.

    (Having to walk down the back steps is enough to stress me)

    I am now trying to learnn relaxation techniques so I can stop the useless meds and get some control.

    Maybe  you could try something similar. I think we all need to think outside the box as doctors seem largely clueless.

    I know it is so hard ut please don't give in to despair.

    Better tomorrow.

    Lindy

      Thanks everyone!

      I was not serious about offing myself. I just miss being able to walk without looking drunk.

      I really appreciate all the support.

      I hate that other people feel dizzy bcs I wouldn't wish this on anyone but I don't feel alone anymore.

      Thanks again <3>
