Hi Lucy,
I just wanted to say that you are not alone. I feel dizzy (well, its more like lightheadedness, like my brain is on a waterbed) all day every day, some days its worse than others. I feel weak and find it tiring just to dry my hair with my hairdryer. I got chest pains the other day which were so bad I couldnt take a full breath and thought I was going to pass out from the pain. I have not yet actually passed out. I also get heart palpitations where my heart beats really hard and fast for about 15mins for no reason. I know what you are going through and it is scary. I have been to see 3 different doctors about my constant dizziness, they sent me for an MRI scan which came back normal. I have now been referred to the National Hospital for Neurology in London and have my first appointment with them on Tuesday.
Have you been to the doctor about your probs yet? What did they say?

My daddy has a horrible pain from his chest down towards his heart and has trouble breathing a lot. He said it feels like a big lump in his throat that keeps him from breathing, he even has trouble sleeping at night. He throws up a lot, even when his stomach is empty. He cant eat anything sometimes, and he threw up blood a few times. He's been to different hospitals several times, and nobody could tell him what was wrong with him. I worry everyday for him. My daddy needs help, ♥I need my dad and i would do ANYTHING to make this go away ♥  Please help..
