i have an issue of always overthinking my symptoms, and thinking the worst of every situation.

    Oh and i dont know if me freaking out about it is causing more symptoms or if its actually real symptoms. 

    And to describe the spaced out feeling a little more it was like i knew i was walking and i could hear people talking around me but i dont remeber what exactly i was looking at but i didnt loose vision. i felt kind of out of body ish. its really hard to put the feeling into words

    How old are you? Sounds as if you're not getting enough sleep. Depending on how severe your back pain is maybe consider seeing an orthopedic doctor for it.

    If I am having problems with mine I get that feeling. PT told me avoid grocery store, Walmart especially, and lowes. So much to look at the eye movement really makes me worse. I forced myself to stay at work one day as long as I could stand it. Finally had to leave early. I don't even remember that night. Was so hard to fight the dizziness took all my concentration just to function . The feeling will also cause a bit of anxiety. Kinda like a panic attack thinking about if your gonna make it to the end of your shift and get home

      Only thing I was ever given for it was 2 mg diazepam that even helped. Meclizine did nothing. But the episode I had a few weeks ago , it's not helping. Went to a new ENT monday. More tests Wednesday. Waiting on results to see if I was misdiagnosed before. Had several episodes of vertigo in the past 3 weeks. Won't leave me alone. Diazepam not stopping them this time.

      Well I seem to have a good 6-8 months before I have another episode which then normally last 1-2weeks I'm through the first week now but no where near starting to feel normal. I think I should go back to my doc and ask to be referred to a different ENT specialist like u to seeing there was a mis diagnosis.

      Meclizine works to stop the nausea and in higher doses  to stop the vertigo.  Luckily, the pills worked to stop the vertigo and the nausea a few weeks ago. It came back a week ago but it was a mild bout, that I didn't feel I needed to take the pills.

      I have stopped taking the betahistine as I read they can actually cause dizziness. It's helped a little. How is your mum either the amitriptyline and what mg does she take?

      Not sure where you read this, but Betahistine eases the symptoms of vertigo. Looking at the patient info on it there's no mention of it causing dizziness. Maybe you read it wrong.

      The Valium diazepam has a calming effect over the brain and nerves however, the body becomes immune to it rather fast such that you need higher doses to feel the effects of it working again. Though it's not classified as a narcotic which it should be, it is classified as a controlled substance because it can be addicting.

      The valium has been helping for 8 years or so. Just this round it seems to be not working as well. Before it stopped it in its tracks. Now it just helps a little. Could be building a tolerance to the low dose.
