Posted , 15 users are following.

Im suffering from dizziness, heavy head from over a year and a half now.. Im only 26 an its having a big affect on my life.. I cant walk alone without holding somebody and i avoid going everywhere because of it.. When i stand i fewl as though im going to fall over. Even sat down im dizzy! Ive had countless blood tests mri aswell but all clear. Seen a neurologist too who said its nothing.. Been to the ent aswell and they said i dont have no ear problems etc.. Ive been given medication for vertigo and all sorts none of which hav helped. Please someone shed some light on this so i can get my life back to normal. Its so frustrating having it 24/7 and not knowing what it could be.

    I Rahela. I suffer from an illness called vestibularneuronitis. First got it around 15 years ago. Poorly with it now. It was diagnosed by a doctor through BUPA. I have it all the time but every so often i get an attack as I am now. Dizzy. Falling over. Dropping things and im not allowed to drive when an attack is happening. Feeling sick.

    Take anti sickness tablets prescribed.

    Hope this helps

      Thanks 😆 it does suck for sure but the 1 thing i have learnt from this forum is that I should have really asked for more from Drs years ago and I realize now one should take the time to heal properly and don't rush back to work but try to do as much things you can. Take the time to get a proper dx., stay positive, work on getting a loving spouse and family. I have never been too fixed on a proper dx as long as I would get feeling better or as best as I thought I could be. I always have rushed back to work and realize now that it just gives me a false sense of normalicy. I have found this forum helpful because I have learnt a bit to go ask my specialist about on my next visit. Since you are so young - I hope you take my advice. Just joined not too long ago since this current flare up and find myself feeling more down since the site is so depressing at times and it's upsetting my optimistic attitude so I may become inactive. Hope, faith, and optimism - I think that is what helps get over the rough patches of this illness. I was raised with the thought there is a season for everything and things pass - illness - health- wealth- problems. I have been dx with alot bbpv, ? Menierres, labyrinthitis ect. So it is confusing for the Dr's and patients. I really pray that you get better and stay that way and not have to live a life with this illness.

      It comes and goes. Sometimes I just relax. Stare at the wall it makes it tolerable. Sometimes if I go lay down it leaves me alone. Theres been times i spent 6 months staring at the wall . No tv, no comp. Nothing. I get do bored it's not funny. Lol. Listen to music.

      I think they don't really know what to do? I take prescription serc, allergy/sinus pills. Just be optimistic someday it will pass. Time is all that helps me really. Sitting up not laying down unless sleeping. Looking straight ahead always. I wear a neck collar at home to help keep my head up and straight. Always have your pills handy and some easy food in the house. I used to have my pills on my bedside table always but let my guard down. Very scary since I was home alone in the middle of the night when the sickness woke me this time. Serc is the main pill I take but gravol with it. Hope today was better for you. 😆
