i have been dealing with lightheaded issues for over a year. it started with feeling dizzy when i stood up then progressed to feeling dizzy and hearing the ocean in my ear and feeling like I'm being strangled. I've had almost ever test EKG, carotid artery echo, heart echo, stress test, hearing test VGN, MRI on my head and ears...ally doctor said was you need to lose weight .... my life has been difficult but i manage. i just want to know whats going on. my husband doesn't like me leaving the house because he is scared i will pass out somewhere. i just want my life back...

      You can try going to a Neurotologist (Tologist with a T ) They specialize in ears only. If you have pain in back of your neck where your skull starts it could be a nerve issues with your Occiptial. I have been spaced out for about 9yrs so I know how it I also have the high pitch in my ear. Have you looked up Occipital Neuralgia?

    have you had your vitamins B-1 ,B-12,B-6 drawn? and your vestibular system checked .? with me they didn't even mention it! so inner ear got damaged from nerve damage ... its worth a try
