    Sounds like vestibular neuritis.  You need to see an Otologist and start vestibular rehab.  It's the only thing that works.  I'm a year out now and I'm starting to feel better.  Only after the rehab.  Don't waste your time with an ENT.  They're useless when it comes to this.

    Have you seen a ENT they told me that I've got vestibular neuronitis I do not like going into supermarket I start to feel weird. When I'm sitting I feel like the chair is rocking. I was told I've got a weak balance system in my left ear. Have you been sent for vestibular rehabilitation exercises

      Just over a year l now how you feel my husband as to do everything for me how long have you been doing the exercises for you got to keep up with them. When I seen the Ent he told me to march on the spot with my eyes closed with my arms out straight count to 50 when I opened my eyes l turned to the left. If you are swaying when standing on the spot try standing with eyes closed count to 50 then do the same standing on a cushion.try and keep moving about it will help you are you still taking sec?

    Sounds like you may have MdDS from what your describing ,Mal de Dembarqument syndrome ,but often having one you can have another with it . Miserable condition . Do you have tinnitus and any neck ache/ pain .?

    Charleg, I have labrynthitis. Causes all of your same symptons to different degrees at different times. A decongestant helps me with sleep. I take it at night. I am scheduled for surgery Thursday to clean out my sinuses and realign my septum. Try and ear, nose and throat doctor and see if you have infection. Good luck, prayers .

      If you have the same symptoms can you take a walk drive work?

      Nobody sees any infection and what is being done to your sinuses my ct scan revealed mucus in my left sinus inside stuck

      How long are you in this so far

      A year now I have been trying to deal with this. Driving is horrible so I don't unless absolutely necessary. I mostly have sudden, severe vertigo with anxiety, etc.. nausea. Lights are a problem and my balance and vision are way off. They are correcting 5 things in my head/sinuses that are affecting my inner ear.

    Hey! I'm 28 years old and had the same symptoms as you. I have three kids so I totally understand how upset u feel. I'm on month 4 now but I am SO much better. My symptoms are very mild now. I can do most things. Still find stores hard but I still do it. Three months was the turning point for me so hang in there. It does get better. Stick with the exercises. Keep ur brain active, and try and do one thing a day u really struggle with. It helps the brain to compensate. Are u on any meds?
