      im totally with you, pam 😦

      it wears me out.. causing me even more anxiety... i try to push it away and not let it scare me... its very depressing.... i guess i'll have to put my big girl panties on and start down the list with seeing doctors... of course when this all started , the first thing that comes to mind is MS 😦

      i have such bad health anxiety i think the worst .....

      hugs to you, friend... praying for us all ❤

      Same here! I actually went to a neurologist that specializes in MS...all normal. All of these bodily sensations have made me a hypochondriac too. It is getting better, the more I find peace with the changes. xo

      Hi Lisa,

      I have also suffered with this awful off balance/ dizzy feeling for years, during this hell called Perimenopause ! Well done for still working, I would not be able to hold down a job feeling like this ! Don't know how you manage it . . . it sounds hopeful that it does eventually end from what tour Doctor says . . Here's praying that they are right.

    I hate it too. comes and goes with me and is often managed with the Epley Maneuver. I did go through 2 years that it was horrible and I didn't leave the house much at all. could not drive.

    I have the dizziness right now...it seems to be a real spring thing with me. allergy related maybe.

      peri is so funny. I seem to age then come back...age then come back. right now it is the extra 15 pounds I am battling. along with the spring spinning head.

      always something. everything comes and goes...and comes back for round 2.

    HI Pam, iv had the off balance feeling for about 5yrs now, i do have times where its not there then suddenly it comes back.

    this is the one symptom thats effected me most as iv lost my confidence to drive far or go out. iv not gone far in seven years, i feel l have lost those years and so far my 50's are crap.

    Ready through your replies i now how your all feeling and its just not fair, i just crave normality.

    Do you wake in a morning analysing how you feel and how your going to get through the day. i have to push myself as im still in work.

    sending you all a comforting off balance hug x
