Hello, I am new to this website. I guess I need to explain from the beginning. For the past three years I have been going through a horrible time. The first day started when I suddenly felt like I was going to faint. I was extremely anxious all day. That progressed into this awful head pressure, where I would get random bouts of an off balance feeling. I had to stop driving. I went to numerous doctors where I had blood tests, mri brain scan, ear specialists...all came back clear. The only thing I was told by the ent doctor, was I possibly had silent migraines, so I was put on tablets. I eventually started feeling better months after, but would still get this off balance feeling and feel disoriented. A month ago, I was walking down the street and had a sudden drop in my body which made me dizzy and also followed by a panic attack... ( I had my heart checked and also a 24 hour blood pressure monitor the day before this happened and results were clear) and ever since then... I have been so anxious, constant disoriented feeling, off balance, my eyes have also been checked recently, but i can't even go on my computer now since this happened. I have had a couple of times where I have looked at my computer and got a couple of seconds of spinning dizziness. I have never had that problem, as I have always been on the computer for long periods of time. I am constantly tired even though I sleep extremely well. My ears feel full sometimes and if I open my mouth my ears crackle or my jaw. I had enough of my doctor and decided to go to a new one. I had asked a lot of doctors about checking my sinuses, because in the past two years I have been getting post nasal drip, a lot of pressure in my face, nose always running, sneezing daily and a lot of mucus daily at the back of my throat. This doctor actually listened to me and I finally got a ct scan. It showed I have a deviated septum with a large concha ballosa in the right side of my nose and something about having a very small middle tubinate. I have to see a specialist and will probably need surgery. I would like to mention as well that I have always had anxiety but it has never ever once made me feel off balance or disoriented. I would like to know from patients who have had surgery or gone through anything similar with the symptoms I have mentioned? Especially the disoriented spaced out feeling. I am afraid to go out anymore, as I just feel it every single day. I am 22 and it has completely stopped me in my tracks in terms of studying. I would love to hear from you and anything that has helped you take away the disoriented feeling. Thank you.
