It started 2yrs ago when walking to work, i got really dizzy & light headed. i had to sit down for 30 minutes before i felt 'normal'
it would happen since then infrequently, then last year it became more frequent to the point i went drs & then hospital. They first told me it was vertigo, they gave me some meds & some exercises with a physio. But it's still with me, i went to hospital again & they did blood tests , all came back fine.
Problem is now, EVERY time i walk for 10 mins or more it happens & now sometimes it might clear if i sit down for a while or sometimes it can stay with me the whole day.
All i can describe it as is dizzy, light headed & i can't concentrate on anything & i only get it when i am walking for a duration of around 10-15mins or more...
i should add that when it first happened i was taking steroids ( for sports performance (football)), was taking on board lots of caffiene too ( around 8-10 cups of coffee a day) The steroids i stopped when i first had this problem, it scared me. The caffiene i stopped in january. i also stopped my job which for 10yrs was 6 days a week 14-16 hrs a day as a strength & conditioning coach.
To no avail, it feels worse & controlling on me than it ever has. It's getting depressing & i just want to feel better. I am a 34yr old male 6'2 & 220lbs
Any advice would be appreciated thankyou
