Looking for some reassurance, comfort I guess.
I am male and 42
Doctor believes I may have labyrinthitus, or anxiety, he can't diagnose labrynthitus, he is leaving that to the specialist, I have an ENT appointment in 6 weeks, not been well for going on 8 weeks in total, not including the symptoms I have suffered off and on six months leading in. (Feeling of being drunk hung over but not having had a drink, one episode of strangest feeling in the head of going to pass out, black out, dizziness feeling, lasting about an hour, have also suffered tinitus, deafness last few years and suffer bad sinus infections last two years around March)
Current situation came on after massive anxiety stress attack, because of symptoms leading up to current situation and some other circumstances I guess
Had wonky strange feeling in head, dizzyness balance issues when walking or turning my head, constant nausea, struggling to eat, popping ear, head pressure, ears buzzing worse than before, hearing loss feels like it is getting worse.
All blood work and cat scan were fine.
Felt like I was trying to walk on a moving train.
Mostly these symptoms have gone after about 6 - 7 weeks, still slightly nauseous at times, but I am now left with just a general unwellness feeling, still slightly wonky in the head, still some dizziness every now and again, some on again off again sharp sinus type headaches, pressure in the sinuses, neck aches from the back of my skull down the sides of my head.
But the worst and most worrying symptoms that I have now, is the jelly legs and arms, my right arm especially, some days worse than others.
Some times I get up to walk and my legs don't feel like they are beneath me.
My muscles are starting to cramp up also.
My question, is this something others have experienced in the recovery process from labrynthitus, weak fatigued jelly like limbs after the others symptoms have started to subside ?
Is this normal or should I be getting more tests done ?
Doctor checked my strength, which he said felt fine, not sure what that ruled out.
This whole experience has been so scary ,debilitating and depressing, looking normal on the outside but feeling lost and wrecked on the inside.
People think I am crazy, having a meltdown.
At the moment the doctor is just treating these symptoms as anxiety and making me take oxazepam so won't get any more information until I see the ent
