    Okay first thing you should do is go to an ENT. Have them test to see if you have a vestibular issue. You can also look up issues with your neck. Start by looking up SCM muscle issues and trigger points. You may want to consider a chiropractor to x-ray your neck as well. There are good groups on Facebook. Look up groups like dizzy neck issues and you should be able to find people who may help.

    Dude you sound exactly like me, I've had almost every test under the sun and all come back normal. I'm going to see a TMJ specialist next coz I grind my teeth at night and having sleep study too very soon.. can you elaborate more on your symptoms? Is the dizzy feeling more like an off balance feeling like you're on a boat or elevator?

      It does get worse on boats and elevators it feels like I’m moving when I’m not even if I’m standing still and something moves beside me feels like I’m gonna fall and this pressure inside my head is bad gets worse with certain smells and caffeine the dizziness kicks in the anxiety really bad

      Im in the same boat as you man, I'd say go get some tests done to rule out any nasty stuff and then look into Chiro, phsyio and a psychologists, thats where im at currently.. I got some skin rash that flares up when im really stressed and anxious and my stomach gets upset easily, its hard to deal with this crap i know but i just keep pushing for my kids, i have a 2 year old and a 10 week old and its the worst feeling not being able to do the stuff i want to do with them.. if i find out the answer you'll be the first ill message in hope its the same for you

    Hi guy's I would definitely look into PPPD( persistent postural- perceptual dizziness)  definitely if you feel worse in motion.. if you feel better in motion I would look into MdDS ( mal de department syndrome)... PPPD is defined as persistent non- vertiginous dizziness, unsteadiness, or both lasting three months or more.. symptoms are present most days, often increasing throughout the day,but may wax and wane. Momentary flares may occur spontaneously or with sudden movements. Affected individuals feel worse when upright, exposed to moving or complex visual stimuli and during active or passive head motion.. unfortunately it doesn't really matter where you live, doctor's don't know much about this...

    Imo you should skip the ent and look for a neuro otologist in your area, they know a whole lot more than an ent, they are the go to folks for the ear brain connection, especially with your vestibular system. Brain fog, dizzyness and anxiety all could be stemming from your vestibular system, could also be pppd, like already mentioned, but that's more of a diagnosis by exclusion of other conditions. The tough part is a lot of symptoms overlap each other with all of these conditions and dizzyness etc, so I'd go with a neuro otologist if you can get to one
