    I've had a VNG. They do a lot of things to make you dizzy or that could make you dizzy To try to pinpoint where it's coming from. The result was nothing for me. They couldn't figure out what it would be Because nothing was out of whack. I'm going next week to in neutorologist to be checked for vertigo or BPPV even though I haven't really had much vertigo. Only twice in the middle of the night. Mostly it's just dizziness.

    Started the bio identical hormones almost 4 weeks ago and taking vitamin B12 and vitamin D supplements as those levels were really low. The OBGYN said that the feel good range is at the top of those ranges and I was either below the bottom of the range are very close to the bottom of the range on both. Low vitamin B12 can cause dizziness.

    We shall see.

    I had room spinning vertigo a week ago. It was awful. I have been off balance since that day. I remember having anxiety in my 20's and would always complain that I was dizzy. The doctor told me to stand on one foot and close my eyes. If you don't fall over, you aren't truly dizzy. When I am feeling dizzy, I always try it. Make sure you are close to something to grab like the kitchen counter!

      its so hard to explain how this feels as nothing spins it did when it first hit me just feels like my head is a bobblehead or floating on my shoulders or being on a constant boat, when in the car when it comes to a stop it feels as if im still moving. sometimes my eyes plays tricks on me with it like things move but only for a split sec and it doesnt really move.

      This is a new symptom for me. The vertigo only happened last week. Today at work, I had a hot flash? panic attack? sudden low blood sugar? It hit me so fast. My heart was pounding, just beating out of my chest. I got all woozy and thought I might faint. I am so scared and riddled with anxiety. I am afraid to go to work tomorrow. So much suffering.
