I accidentally came upon this website and I really like this.
The reason for my search is my question.
Since almost a year I have been having occassional dizzy spells. When I say dizzy, it is not the room rotating feeling, but rather, feeling of loosing balance. This lasts for only a few seconds and it could happen when I walking, sitting in a chair, lying down, no pattern of time either. I always attributed this to my pressure being low as I take indral 10 mg twice with Asprin twice and Trietazidine Dichloride 20 mg for my Microvascular Angina.
At almost the same time, I used to occassionally have this head ache on the left side of my head, not temple but middle part of my skull and feel a pressure or push toward my left eye ball. When I had these headaches, I felt like piercing something throught my left eye into my skull. The headache would not stop even if I took pain meds. It would last for more than 8 hours sometimes and then go. I did not take it too seriously at the time as it only happened occassionally. I should also mention that my left eye was tearning. I don't remember any of this being connected.
Now the past month, I noticed that I loose balance more frequently while doing normal stuff, my head ache has increased. Now this past two weeks, when I lie down to sleep, I feel a loss of balance and it take around 10 - 15 seconds to feel ok. But if I kind of sweep my hair my under my neck, on the left side, while lying down I feel the imbalance again. I tried this on my right I don't have any issues.
I have woke up from sleep with my left hand tingling and numb. I then walk for few minutes and move my fingers and arm to get the sensation back. I don't know if any of these are connected but I am writing everything that is happening to me in the past few months.
I went to an ENT and he did couple of test for my ear. It was discovered that I do not have any reflex for the Vestibular System in both ears and have high frequency hearing loss.
I do not work in an environment that has any noise to have this loss, nor am I a person who listens to music using headphone or earphone, nor do I like telephones.
I now plan to go to a GP and ask for an MRI to be taken.
Do you have any idea of what these symptoms means or how I should proceed.
I work full time and Manager in IT. I exercise and actually love to workout. But now am unable to do any abs exercises etc where I have to lift my head. I would appreciate if you could help me. Thank you in advance for any advise or insights.
