Hey everybody im15 years old and in not sure to post this in public but this is the only

Choice left . Last moth I felt that I get dizzy

Alot. And idk what is the problem.

I got alot of anxiety and stress from this

yesterday I wake up morning and tha room was

Spinnig I run to drink some water and then I felt ok but couldn't sleep again because I felt dizzy again .

And sometimes even in the car when I'm

Looking from the window my eyes is looking

From thing to a thing until I felt dizzy but its

Like the world is lagging and I can't concentrate on what ppl is talking like all ppl are

Talking and I seems not to understand what is happening.

The only way I feel I can stop the dizziness. Is staring at something that is not moving because I feel the problem in my eyes

last time I got dizzy when I was going to the grocery and in the way I felt dizzy idk know how I can describe it because there are 2 different kind I suffer from 1 the room I just spinning and 2 I feel my eyes is like looking left

Right left right like lagging in fbs games and my concentration goes my heart beat increase I feel thirsty and feel like I'm not heavy like I'm ghost or something

    Definitely sounds like you have/had vertigo.  I'll PM you with a video that helped me and some other people on this board....

    I had the eye issues with my Veritgo for about 2+ weeks.  Finally it just went away on it's own.....    I'm going on my 7th week of recovering and I;m still not 100% yet.   It is a very slow and long recory process but it does get better. 

    You could take vitamins to increase Iron in your system ands ee if that helps.  You should be able to buy vitamins over the counter.

    I would definitely tell you that you need to see a doctor.  If you are 15 you should not be experiencing issues of this nature.  The most common cause of rotational vertigo is an inner ear infection or possibly what is called BPPV.  At your age I would not think that it is BPPV.  Did you have any ear issues before this began?  Pain in the ear, cold, flu, etc?  Dizziness, not vertigo, can also be caused from anemia.  Anemia can be hereditary and also could be linked to your diet.  If your mother is anemic and assuming that you eat the same things that she does.

    Ok, a few things you can do. Go get a bllod test and have them look at your Iron, Magnessium, Vitamin D, and B12 levels. When any of these are low you could feel dizzy. Also consider an eye issue called Vertical Heterophoria. You may want to get looked at by an ENT to eliminate any ear issues as well.

    Also, the eye movement you describe sounds like nystagmus. It's not a serious condition, but a visit to an ENT could help you...if you could convince your mother. Sorry, it sounds like she's frustrated with her own experiences.  Maybe you can tell her that you'll try her way and ask how long it should take to clear up your problems, then you'll need medical intervention if she can't help you at home???

    I agree that a 15 yr old shouldn't feel like he's outside of his body, dizzy, eye movement issues, etc. Are you having trouble doing your HW/reading/class work? I would think that moving your eyes across a page, or looking from a text book to your notebook (or a computer) would feel terrible.  sad  

    My own parents were quick to dismiss my issues with vision and balance and I can tell you that as an adult, they haven't improved on their own...just the opposite. I saw an eye doctor once because the school knew I needed it and when he diagnosed my lazy eye, she told me to try harder and not be lazy... She meant well, and I never lacked for check-ups, etc. and was always healthy and cared for in the other ways...but specialists?  Only when I had head-to-toe hives or something really alarming.  (Now my kids have more specialists than I can count)

    So, hang in there!  See what help your parents will offer and then if you're not better, try to get them to take you to someone who can help.  Good luck!

    Those places where you get dizzy (car, grocery, conversations) are the typical places people with vestibular disorders get dizzy.  Same with the eye issues.  I would stress to your parents that this is a major thing that needs medical attention. Maybe show them a website about Vestibula Neuritis. You may get better and never figure out what it was, but I would start lining up the appointments just in case it goes on for months, like it did for me.  Also, keep a journal of the symtoms.  If you still can't get help, pull up some vestibular rehab exercises on the Internet and start doing them (slowly at first).  They may help with the eyes and dizziness.  If you are out of shape, get in shape.   Give us updates!

      Not sure what country you live in but, my recommendation would be a Neurotologist (Otologist).  They specialize in inner ear issues.  If one is not available you need to see an ENT (Otolaryngologist).  Many things can cause the symptoms that you are experiencing, though.
