Are you on any meds that would cause dizziness? One question first is that does the vertigo come on with movement such as moving your head to one side, or can you just be sitting there without moving your head and they come on? If it comes on with movement it can be benign paroximal positional vertigo. For this they just have you lay in certain positions for a while. Then it should go away. If not then if the MRI said you have an inner ear problem you could have Menier's disease that causes vertigo. They usually treat that with water pills (diuretics). I would see an ENT and bring the MRI. Before going to the doctor you can get a copy where you had the test done. Just call them and ask how to get the copy. Also, if it isn't the inner ear it could be migraine related. I have that. There is a particular kind of migraine variant that gives you vertigo , migraines, auras (don't always get the aura it varies ) and so forth. You could see a neurologist too. I saw a migraine specialist and they did an electroencephalogram or EEG that showed I had migraines and not a seizure and that along with the symptoms helped her and the ENT together diagnose me. I am now on Topamax and although it has side effects it keeps me from falling over. So I would be sure your arrhythmia is being treated properly. If it is and you are confident that isn't the problem then if you have a FP or GP doc they can refer you to an ENT and a good neurologist . I hope that they can help like they did for me.
I would go visit an allergy specialist to start with. All of you symptoms as well as fatigue can be associated with allergies which can become worse with age if left untreated. Insurance companies are encouraging Dr. 's to give injections for allergies for the first 3 visits for training purposes as well as observations to see if there are any side effects to the patient. Each vial is designed specifically for the individual. After that, the patient is responsible for their injections themselves. Anyway. It has helped me figure out several of these same symptoms.
