I am a 20 year old male with an otherwise clean physical and mental health history. For the past two months, I have felt as though I am walking on a boat or airplane. When standing still, these symptoms persist, and I sometimes feel as though the floor is dropping out from beneath me. For the first month or so, sitting down or laying down would almost completely eliminate these symptoms, but as of the past month, symptoms are present almost all the time. Thankfully, I am still able to sleep comfortably as exhaustion overrides the feeling that my bed is floating, and I have not lost my appetite. I feel best when in a moving car, but am at my worst after disembarking the car, especially after a long trip. At these times, my legs will also feel weird, almost like jelly, for a short period of time. Another prevalent symptom is sporadic pressure in my head and sometimes upper nose, it is not painful, but still quite an uncomfortable feeling. Symptoms are significantly worsened by feelings of anxiousness, and smoking marijuana and drinking also exacerbate symptoms. I have undergone all of the brain, heart, and ENT tests thanks to my caring parents, but have been told by my city's very own top ENT that i'm completely fine, though he did tell me to take allergy medicine every day along with flonase, which has done little to ease my symptoms. Important things to note are that I have seasonal allergies, though have never experienced dizziness from them. Additionally, I have been under a lot of stress at college and experienced some panic attacks which included a fast heart rate, trouble breathing, and this same dizziness. I still experience this about once a week, though I feel the only thing giving me anxiety now is the fact that I can't go about my life as normal due to this dizziness.
