My 19 year old daughter woke up one morning 3 weeks ago light headed and dizzy (no vertigo). It gradually got worse over that first week to the point where she starts to gets episodes of blurred vision, head heaviness, and feels like she's going to pass out. No pain. These episodes get worse with the more activity she does during the day, but they can occur when she is seated and doing nothing. (At one point, she was driving in the car. ). The only thing that resolves it is laying down. She does not have these issues when laying down or sleeping at night, but mentions it as soon as she opens her eyes and gets out of bed...sometimes even just moving her head. She has headaches a couple times a week ive noticed...but that could actually be since starting prednisone. She has had a head and neck CT scan and bloodwork, which were normal. They placed her on a 5 day Prednisone rx which has done nothing. She's also taken Meclizine, Flonase, and homeopathic natural supplements, as well as, acupuncture to help...but nothing has. She has had some relief with acupuncture, but it's random and usually only lasts until she wakes up the next morning. Out of the 7 times she had acupuncture this week, 4 were effective. Taking her to a chiropractor tomorrow and doctor referred her to an ENT. We're at a loss . She started a new job 3 weeks ago and she's in danger of losing it because she can't work. Anyone had something like this? We're thinking possibly inner ear or neck issues...
