allergies and dizziness??

May 31, 2011 - 4 comments

i have been dizzy for 4 months now and its been a nightmare! been to GP, ENT,ER a few times, and neurologits, blood test,hearing,allergy,ENG and 2 catscans later all came back normal.

the ENT seems to thinks it allergies, and i have been started on allergry shots (havent started working yet)

i will be getting an MRI to rule out a acoustic neuroma (scary) a benign tumor in the inner or middle ear i believe

has anyone ever had any problems with dizziness and allergies?.....acoustic neuroma

Hello and yes! I was in the same boat you are in now about a year ago and oh yes,my dizziness was indeed due to my allergies! I would get vertigo upon standing and if i tilted my head upwards,i had to hold onto something.Scary time for me as i panicked a few times during the dizzy episodes.I finally had a doctor tell me it could be due to allergies and prescribed me flunisolide nasal spray and within 3 days my dizziness was gone,no more.I also take Zyrtec every so often as well.My allergic reaction was due to my animals,my cats were sleeping with me nightly.

I was dizzy for about 2 months,off and on.It's strange because i have had my cats for years and suddenly boom,allergic reactions..? I had been under alot of stress as well so that might have contributed.

I hope the zyrtec has worked for you,if not,try going to YouTube and type in "exercises for the Epley maneuver".
