Going nuts trying to connect these symptoms

For the past 3 years now, I've been having recurrent episodes of nausea, dizziness, vertigo and excessive heartburn and sweating. This tends to happen roughly once a month now (used to only be ever 3-4 months a year ago) and it takes ALL day to recover.

The first time this happened, I was worried I was having a heart attack and called 9-1-1. They did a full workup and ruled out a heart attack and diagnosed me with vertigo instead. I was given meclazine and sent home after a few house and tests.

The same thing happened a few months later and I was able to ride it out at home this time. I was in bed all day and just generally felt unwell the entire time.

Now this is happening once a month. I have been watching what I eat very closely as I thought these symptoms might be related to my acid reflux. But nothing seems to work.

I've been to my PCP/GP several times and he has no idea what's happening either. All my labs are normal...and I had an endoscopy that was all clear just a month ago. I saw an ENT thinking it might be an inner ear issue, and that was inconclusive as well.

I'm losing my mind trying to figure out what could be wrong...it's always a worry in the back of my mind. Especially when I go on vacation.

Hi, Eleanor. Do you happen to flush (turn red) a lot?

I'd get a blood pressure monitor, to see if your BP is low during these episodes. That can explain the nausea, dizziness, vertigo.

Have you ever tried Benadryl and/or an H2-blocker/antacid like Pepcid during a long episode?

Has any doc mentioned a mast cell disorder?
