I'm looking for anyone who has felt these or similar symptoms to tell me their story in hopes that It might illuminate my own situation. For about 3 months now, I've been feeling dizzy every second of every day. If I move my head too quickly, or if my head is in one position (like laying down) and then I move it to another position I get very dizzy. It also get dizzy sitting at the computer and looking down at the keyboard and the back up at the screen, or when I'm walking and I look to either side I get dizzy.
Also, when I am walking or standing I often get the feeling of falling over even though I have not actually fallen or been unsteady. I just feel like I'm constantly about to fall over. I also feel like it's hard to concentrate while this is going on. I feel sort of like I'm in a fog or like I'm floating and not really a part of what's going on around me. I have NOT had any hearing problems associated with this, and my vision seems fine as well.
I have seen my Primary Care doctor about this and he referred me to an ENT. The ENT ordered a VNG test. When the results came back, my doctor didn't really seem to be able to provide a clear diagnosis but he thought it may have to do with my central nervous system. He put me on a diuretic (triamterene-HCTZ) but I had to go off that because I actually became more dizzy and often felt that I was on the verge of passing out (while driving for instance). Then he put me on something called betahistine which I can only get from England. It's too early to tell if that's helping or not. I know it's hard to diagnose these disorders, but any feed back could help me at least feel like I'm not alone with all this. Thanks.
