Dizziness un-explained

I’ve had what I call dizziness for 5 years now. I call it dizziness, because I have no other name for it. To best explain it, I would say that everything around me seems un-real. I am not totally cogniscent of the things around me. The earth literally appears to shake as I walk. It’s like looking through a video camera while walking. My balance is fine. I experience no vertigo whatsoever. My head constantly feels like there’s pressure in it. It always feels like a have a tiny head-ache all day long. My neck feels a little pressure as well. My eyes seem to get watery at times. I must say that I have chronic allergies and I feel that it is a big contributor to it. I must also mention that this all started right after my first experience getting drunk in college. Since then, I have visited many doctors. I’ve gotten an MRI and an ENG. Most of the time, this is so bad that I cannot think clearly at all. Another good way to explain it is it’s like getting a new pair of glasses. Your eyes are not adjusted and therefore, it’s like having an alcohol buzz without the feeling of relaxation. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate your response. Thankyou.

Hello David, firstly im an osteopath and have had a few patients come to me complaining of dizziness, varying with different accompanying symptoms of vertigo, deafness, fullness in the ear, neck pain/stiffness etc.

One patient had been suffering with this dizziness for 2 years on and off and got so bad, she was unable to drive without a bout coming on. She also had seen a number of specialists and nothing really could be diagnosed. I was then her last hope as they put it. I made a home visit and after the first visit, she had no bouts of dizziness within the week until the following treatment session and no accompanying headache or neck pain. Since then, she has not felt the dizziness again, however, continued treatment for other areas of dysfunction.

Not saying that this is the case for everybody suffering from dizziness, but there is no harm in treating it via a different approach as this patient did. As I have had experience in treating these patients, I am aware of the different techniques I am able to use tailored to this symptomology. I had diagnosed the patient with cervicogenic dizziness where the cervical spine was causing her dizziness, and just by treating this holistically, caused an improvement in symptoms.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me (can be found on the website).

I have stuggled with un-explained dizziness and shortness of breath for more than a year, and I have had every medical test in the book all reporting that I am in perfect health. I think I have finally discovering an answer, and I promised myself that I would come back to these forums and share some hope for others who have suffered.
Check out chronic hyperventilation syndrome. My Dr. had never heard of it, but there is so much helpful info out there on the subject. There is a wonderful book out there by Dinah Bradley about breathing disorders, and it is finally giving me some answers and some hope. Blessings ~

Sorry this hasd been posted elsewhere but I thought I would try here!

I have been suffering from bad dizziness and sporadic headaches for the best part of the year. I have had various diagnoses, the last of which was inner ear paresis, although I notice that my symptoms get worse with caffeine, sleep and lack of sleep. So perhaps it is a vestibular migraine?

In February 2012 I became increasingly intolerant of artificial light, large crowds, walking long distances and objects moving across my line of vision. I started to notice “fullness” in the ears, nausea, tinnitus, the horizon “bobbing” as I walked, a blurring of my vision and found that I tiered more easily.

I do get pretty depressed but I am trying to get something positive out of the experience by writing a blog to help support others. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Any comments and questions are most welcome!

There is nothing wrong, with you. Sometimes I feel dizzy myself (though not exactly the way you explained it), when I think about things like; what would happen next, assuming I said Baraka Ebama Pres. of the Divided States (or the D.S) for short, is a sucker or if I said, fork Queen Elizabeth II...
