So about three months ago i started experiencing slight dizziness at work(i work on the checkout in a shop). It would happen for a minute or so, maybe once a week and that was it. I put it down to the lights at work, or looking at the checkout screen too much.
Anyway things got slightly worse, and then last month, out of nowhere, I couldnt stand to be at work. I was fine at home, but as soon as i was around the bright shop lights i was always feeling like i was about to faint.
I went to the doctors, and they gave me a 10 day supply of prochlorperazine and said i had Labrynthitis. A few days into taking the tablets, the dizziness had subiseded. When i finished the tablets a few days later it all came back but so much worse.
Now it happens at home, i had to miss a few days of work(thankfully im not on holiday) I cant go outside without my vision being distorted, and even when i go out i cant stand it for any longer than an hour. If i am in an enviroment with people talking the sounds are like they are closer than they are, and when looking at someone it feels like they are ever so slightly tilting back and fourth. Im having panic attacks once a day now aswell.
Im aware that the tablets dont get rid of the virus, but just stop the feeling, but have been giving more of them and they arent helping. It just feels like my symptoms are getting worse and worse. Im due back at work in a week and unless i improve im not going to be able to go back. I feel completely at a loss, and keep getting paranoid that its not going to go away or that something else is wrong with me
Sorry for the long post, but any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
