Vertigo like symptoms

For about 2 or 3 years now I've been getting progressively worse symptoms that sound like Veritgo.  Nothing seems to alleviate the problem.  I can just be sitting and move slightly and I go spinning. I've had blood tests and they can find nothing.... I'm the picture of health apparently...   I've had 4 mri's and 2 CT scans and a hearing test, and another test where I had to follow lights and they poured water in my ear.  The ENT found nothing and pretty much told me I just had to live with it. Even though on the test where they pour the water in the ear, I had no response in my left ear at all... He couldn't find anything wrong nor could be account for that anomaly but to say that it could have been been a problem with the test.  I'm now getting headaches all the time along with the dizzy spells. Between the near constant dizziness, the pressure in my head, now the headaches and the fact that no one can figure this out and nothing shows on any tests I have...  I'm about at my wits end...  Could this just be something I have to live with?  Or is it just something simple my many dr's have overlooked?  Allergies?  Spinal issues?  I had a chiropractor that helped for a bit but it just came back.  Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you Paul... errie that you were listing symptoms that I have that I didn't list... I will check this stuff out.  Since I am pretty much a computer nerd, and a gadgit addict I can see where this is a possiblity.   Thank you so much!

Hi!  i had all the symptoms that you had.  i'm just gonna tell you what i did with mine.  i used eardrops and it opened up my eustachian tubes.  check online about eustachian tube too.  your left ear is probably blocked pretty bad bec. of no response.

You can get any brand.  you need to lie down on your side when treating your ears.  i would say 1 hr. or  2 hours.  once a day is good enough for 8 days.  hope you feel better.

Can you post the answer from Paul... my daughter has similar problems with pressure in her head, preceded by vertigo that got a little better, but is now back.  Has had MRI and CT scan and tons of bloodwork.  They told her it was anxiety, but it is NOT.

I also have electromagnetic radiation poisoning -- I get headaches, nausea (or acid reflux), sleep very lightly and feel like I have trouble concentrating.   If I sit from of a screen (mostly the old kind) -- I get a bit of skin rash.   I have friends who have the same symptoms plus neck pain (like a pulled muscle) and nose bleeds.  

I guess from too much cell phone use or something -- I had to turn off my cell phone, wifi and even electrical appliances give me a tingling feeling.

I haven't found any solution -- please if anyone knows more about this please share.  For now I am just turning things off --  it's not a solution but at least I feel better.    Share what you learn -- I have seen  a lot of people with similar symptoms on these lists.

Carol.

I have vertigo from time to time too. Apparently it is due to some neck problem. Its strange because I dont really feel anything in my neck but when I move my head woosh the whole world moves.
You may want to look up a condition called BPPV, it has to do with little calcium rocks in the ear that make you dizzy when you move your head.
Good luck. I know how you feel, vertigo is not a thing just ''to live with''.

I have been diagnosed with BPPV...  but nothing seems to work...  I didn't some research and have been looking around the net and talking on other forums.   I got another sinus infection this weekend and when I went to the dr and they laughed at me for not having taken tylenol first I got really pissed.   So I've been looking really hard this morning and I've found something about Candida...  http://www.wholeapproach.com/   I'm willing to believe or try anything at this point.   What's intriguing about this is ... I did atkins for about 6 months and I felt the best I have in years.  Once I went off the program I went down again.  The eating programs on that website and a lot of the symptoms seem to fit my issues.   It's worth a shot for anyone having these repeat/continued issues.
