I had an attack of severe vertigo about a year ago which gradually subsided after about a week. I went to A&E and they diagnosed labyrinthitis.
Throughout the past year I have felt off balance practically everyday especially when my neck is tense or I look up on down for example.
The other day I suffered another attack (both started upon waking). When it happens I cannot get up or move my head and I feel awful and have no sense of equilibrium. I have been taking Stemetil for the past few days, however this morning i felt a little better so decided to go into work - big mistake as soon as i got in I felt dizzy, lightheaded, shaky and like everything including myself was moving. i'm now at a lost as to what to do. My doctor said it could be BPPV but my attacks last hours rather than minutes. I have had blood tests, I also had a MRI on my ear about 3 years ago as I also suffer from tinnitus. What sort of testing should I get done? I cannot carry on like this as I am constantly waiting for another attack to happen and I never feel "right".
