My fiancé has been suffering with dizziness and vertigo since May this year. She had a virus earlier in the year which included dizziness and that went away but a few months later the dizziness came back.
She describes it simply as being on a boat and the has bouts of vertigo which feel like she's being pulled to the ground. She's been to her GP several times. She was referred to an audiologist and all tests came back ok. She was then referred to an ENT but to be honest he wasn't very helpful, pretty much read the results from the audiologist and said she shouldn't have this at her age (she's 23) the discharged her. All advice by her GP and the audiologist tests suggest that this isn't a permanent illness, yet it's been quite a while. It gets worse if she's got a bug or virus and if she's on her period.
We're a bit lost on what to do next as we want to get to the bottom of this, it is affecting her quality of life and she's not sure whether she feels confortable to travel by air as she's heard it can make things worse.
