Hi....this is my first post to this forum, and i'll do my best to be brief....I've had bouts of dizziness/disequilbrium on and off for probably two years now, but for the last two or three months, it's been with me pretty much every day....I had previously been told that it was related to an anxiety disorder, but now I'm not so certain...all day, every day for months? That doesn't sound plausible. In any event, I saw an ENT two weeks ago, and he's suggested that I do two things 1) have an audiogram to identify any inner ear issues (my appointment is next Tuesday) and 2) vestibular rehabilitation therapy to "retrain my brain"...my question is this: if the dizziness/disequilibrium truly is related to anxiety (or hormonal changes, as has also been suggested (I'm perimenopausal)), will the rehab help? Or is it only effective for "organic" causes of dizziness? It's gotten to the point where I'm nervous about leaving the house (but I'm nervous about being home alone too)....if I didn't have an anxiety disorder before this, I certainly do now....ugh! Any thoughts/advice you can offer would be MUCH appreciated....I hate feeling this way.
