    Simone, have you seen someone about this? All your symptoms are clearly connected. You need to insist on a referral to an ENT specialist.

      Hi lily about 3 years ago I went to the doctors because of the giddy spells and off balance,also when I Stan feels like I'm swaying.

      Doctor gave me anti depressents,I did feel anxious and down,but because of this happening to me.

      I had a ct scan on the brain and an mri on brian,all fine.

      Also ecg,echo gram and blood tests.all fine.

      I spent one night in hospital because I was so giddy and off balance I was kept in,only because my husband insisted,whilst I was in hospital they sent an ent doctor to see me ,she just looked in my ears and said everything was fine,

      I don't take the antideppressents no more I stopped taking them about 8 months ago .I feel better in myself without them.
