I'm a 27 old male and have had a period of persistent, continuous vertigo for about 3-4 weeks. Luckily, it was not that bad (meaning I was able to walk, not significantly nauseous). I went to see a private GP at the 3rd week of this period for vertigo and shortness of breath but he only said it's most probably about inner ear and will subside in a week for vertigo, and gave an inhaler for shortness of breath after listening lungs & heart with the suspicion of mild asthma. As he said, vertigo went away within a week and I lived happily for a week or two. But about 2-3 days ago, it came BACK. It's not as intense as before, but I can still feel the world spinning. It's again mostly continuous, and not related to my position as far as I can tell.
I have been known to have panic attacks, and I went to A&E for 3 times, to my NHS GP 2 times and a private GP once in the last 6 months. So I really DO NOT want to go to a doctor. I don't want to waste anyone's time, and it doesn't help myself too.
So, any idea what might be the source of this vertigo? I don't have any other symptoms worth noting, such as ear-related symptoms or a headache, etc. And, I just came out of a very stressful period, but that period is over and I don't feel particularly anxious or depressed now (except some health anxiety due to this).
