Vertigo when driving

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey everyone,

I am 47 years of age and i have been experiencing vertigo set off mostly by driving for the past 3-4 years. In the beggining i was so scared and didnt know wbat it could be i went to the doctor and made me a check up and they said i was fine. Alnost everytime i drive it sets off especially when i get on the high way and i get very anxious and feel like i will pass out i am very mad that i have to go through this and at the same time even scared to go to work it sucks a lot to live like this. There was times when i didnt have it but for some reason i am experiencing it now but it cameback a bit stronger this time. I have been experiencing this for pretty long even one time when i barely started with this i literally had to sit on the floor and called my wife becajse i felt something bad was going to happen thats when i went to the doc but they gave me no answers. Does anyone have the same symptoms? This sjcks if anyone has some advice i would highly appreciate it.Thank you.

    Need to see a neurotologist. They specialize in these problems. Get all the good tests. VNG, etc.

      Hi Eduardo, im still the same , so weird. Ya docs keep telling me im fine too but im not! Still cant drive very far. The only thing that i have read about that sounds close is vertical heterophoria, its a problem with your eyes but only a specialist can diagnose it so im getting an appointment with an opthamologist and i will see what they say. Fingers crossed! I will keep u posted! Thk u so much for answering me and im glad u have gotten better somewhat.
