I was sitting at my pc 4 weeks ago...chatting away on MSN and suddenly I had this pressure all over my head and the room swam in front of me!! I was terrified...thought I was having a stroke or my time was up! And I recently had an MRI scan (in March) which showed as normal( I had an MRI for headaches)...so I knew my brain was ok..but the feeling was horrendous..like I was drunk...I managed to walk holding on to everything to my next door neighbour..who then called the doctor out for me...the doctor said it was Labyrinthitis and I was given an injection to lessen the dizziness and some anti sickness tablets,even though I wasn't sick or anything but I was abit nauseous....I already suffer from Anxiety so it really was horrific to feel liek this...worrying about headaches was bad enough but now I'm constantly worrying if I'm going to get another spinning attack like that again! I do suffer from light headedness and sometimes when I move my head the room shifts or something...but this isn't a constant thing,so is it my anxiety playing up again or do I really have Labyrinthitis?...I am awaiting to hear from ENT for an appt...as I drive and really need to drive as I have 3 sons and am single parent so having this really is a huge set back...I have been crying abit the last few days,anything seems to trigger me off!, Not sure if it's the constant worrying about the dizziness or what..but I do suffer from Tinnitus as well...so when I get a dizzy spell or 'rush' to the head I get the noises to go with it too! So now when I have tinnitus I worry if it means a dizzy spell is coming on after it!...I've been trying to find a support group...or even anyone in my area who has suffered from this to talk about it and see how it can be dealt with!..( I am in the Midlothian area in Scotland)...I have looked into everything...and maybe I'm in denial but my symptoms aren't quite like Labyrinthitis....I just know I'm scared to go out anywhere in case I come over funny...but what is it though??
