    Hi Dee, I also had very similar. I went to many doctors including ENT. Then an Ayurvedic doctor, who also follows western mecine, asked me to take a MRI of my cervical and thoatic spine. Sure enough, I had issues there. I had herniation in my neck area/spine and that was cauing the blood flow and dizziness. I went to Kerala India for a 18 day ayurvedic treatment, with oils and cleansing. I felt better after that, but I am back again where I am every now and then. It comes and goes. If I go for running, I feel dizzy a few days later, and it stays, if I travel and stress out too much, it comes back. And the only easy way to control is, sleep with my legs elevated, and it feels better. I still don't know how to cure this, but I am going to go to Kerala once again at the end of this year. I too, just like you, tried everything, and it was very frustrating after 5-6 months. Do you have any neck pain? or any other issues?

    Yes, me too.   Is there no support group in your country, Dee - first of all - because it's a big help?
