About 2 years ago i had a surgery for a gall bladder removal and about 5 days later i became dizzy so everyone thought it had something to do with the surgery and that i got some kind of inner ear infection. I went through about every test they could think of and lots of physical therapy for all the vestibular stuff and nothing helped and i passed all thetest they did. So about 8 months ago i got sent to see a neurologist and she quickly pointed out that i had chiari malformation of 7mm and that that could be why i am dizzy. i also have headaces and constant neck pain but the dizzieness is just ruining my life. Well today finally went and seen a neuroseurgeon ( i been putting it off because i keep trying to just live with it) and he told me that he has done this surgery severl times but none of his patients were severly dizzy 24/7 like i am so he dont know if surgery will help me. What i wanna know from all of you is, is it normal with this condtion to feel like im in a boat on water all the time and like everything is moving or spining? When i lay in my bed it feels like im in a water bed to and it dont matter what i d im always dizzy. The last few months have been the worst yet, i can barely get out of bed or off the couch because it feels like my head is going to spin off. There is nothing else they can figure out that is wrong with me and all i can think is that i am going to be stuck like this forever and im only 30 yrs old. Sometimes i will start to feel a little bit better to where i can go out and do some stuff but then a couple days or maybe weeks later it will hit me real hard again and im back to laying around for a few weeks till it lets up a little bit. it never full ygoes away just gets to where i can handle it sometimes.
