I keep getting extreme feelings that I am going to "pass out" or that I am "falling rapidly". I would not call it a dizzy spell. Normally these occur when I am in a stressed situation otten when standing but not always. I can go for weeks feeling fine; then it all starts again and lasts for three weeks or so before it disappears again. This has been going on for over a year now.
I call it an "attack" because it comes on without any warning and then afterwards leave me feeling unwell or "washed out". I have had blood tests, blood pressure tests, kidney and liver scans and an MRI scan but nothing is wrong with me. I have seen an ENT specialist and she has no ideas either apart from the suggestion that whilst it is not full blown Meniere's it may be a less common form. I have the traditional tablets for Menieres to take but they have no effect and given that my wife has Meniere and I know a little about it I feel fairly sure it is not "full blown meniere's".
I cannot find out what on earth is wrong and would like to know if anyone has any ideas or where I can read more about forms of Meniere's that are of a "rare" nature and is there such a thing?
