Off balance

Posted , 11 users are following.

I have been experiencing an off balance feeling for at least 6 months. It feels as if I’m swaying. I can’t feel it driving, walking, or running. It’s as if the motion of those activities mask the off balance feeling. I have been countless times to the doctor. Any advice on what it could be?

    I get a similar feeling, I have a sore and tight upper back and when I use a massage ball on my back leaning against a wall and Bob up and down it makes me feel like I'm standing on jelly or like I could just drop

    Some people have lasting effects from drinking alcohol very different from hangover , you can be spaced out and swaying occasionally and then back to normal , come and go .

    Stop alcohol for 2 weeks and see if it goes away

      I actually quit alcohol all together in October, 2017. I would  consider myself an alcoholic, which is why I quit. My imbalance symptoms began around December. I had bad anxiety when I quit alcohol and tried taking Zoloft around the time that my imbalance appeared. Zoloft made me dizzy and I feel as though Zoloft May have something to do with this.

    I have an issue that is similar to you and I have seen every doctor possible and they can't figure it out and some of the doctors don't even try hard enough and it's very frustrating not having an answer so I can relate to you because it has been so long
