Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Me!

Is anybody else dizzy/space out every minute of every day? If so, what other symptoms do you have?

If not, please don't respond to this post.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

When my allergies and or my sinuses are acting up...yes I'm dizzy 24/7.
I also have ETD and when my ears are having a flare up that makes me dizzy 24/7

With the allergy/sinus issue I also have terrible head pressure and headaches.
When it's my ears I have pressure along my jawline and down into my neck.

One more thing I wanted to ask....is it possible that your neck is out of place?
If it is that can cause the dizziness.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Hi guys, yes I am dizzy 24/7. I just went over a bridge to the beach, and almost passed out for some reason. Gracie- I am seeing a chiro next week for that exact reason. Junior- there are so many other recent posts on this- take a look at them.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

I know there are many recent posts, I posted most of them. Hee hee. But most people who say that they're dizzy 24/7 actually mean that they have dizzy spells all day long. I want to differentiate those people from the ones that are dizzy every single minute of every day, like me.

Funny you mention the chiro, I just went to talk to one 5 minutes ago. The office next door is a chiro's office, so I figured, why not. However, I doubt that it's nerve related because I get near-fainting spells with lots of head pressure. When I get a headache, I feel like passing out. Pain is almost always associated with cervical spine damage. But I have no pain. But since I crack my neck A LOT, I figured I have nothing to lose.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Ya know what? My friend had similar headaches like you are describing, and it turned out that she had some swelling of a nerve behind her neck, and it was giving her the weirdest symptoms. Physucal therapy really helped her out. My dizziness is allllll day. Not room spinning, but like a very lightheaded, pulsing feeling. It also seems like my eyes are controlling it. I never passed out though, have you? Tell me what tests you have had.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Nope, never passed out, although they dizzy spells scare the heck out of me. I've had the routine blood tests, EKGs & chest x-ray. Nothing specific like an MRI or CT scan. Plus, in Canada, a doc must refer me to a specialist in order to get such tests done. And believe me, unless they are sure you're dying, they won't give you those tests. I've been to the ER three times because I was fed up with the dizziness. And I have yet to receive a diagnosis different than that of anxiety.

I got a chiropractor's appointment for tomorrow after all. I'm willing to give anything a try at this point.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

I def got the 24/7 thing going on and I didnt work for an entire year...now I work part time and the reason I can do that is because I work with friends thatare like family and know what's going on so it's a bit of a comfort zone in a way but still cant mangae full time.... these symptoms drive me nuckin futs still and it's been a year and a half....Im slightly more functional but not back to par...the days I feel my best are the days I would feel horrible when I was "normal"....if that makes any sense.....but yeah constant head pressure, spacy, dizzy, eyes playin funky tricks and not right...just feel wacko and so foreign to myself...like Im a stranger to myself....

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

I'm going to see a chiro today right after work. I'll just ask them to feel around to see if they feel anything out of place. I'm not sure I want to pay 100$ extra from the X-rays.

For the dizziness sufferers... If you turn your head in big circles (neck rolls) a couple of times, does it make you extremely dizzy? I know this is normal to a certain extent, but just doing one or two rotations gave me a near-fainting spell with an incredible off balance feeling. Also, as you do it, do you hear a little bit of neck-crackling in your head?

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Yeah, that's my main issue -- the dizziness. I can put up with the stomach problems because they're not as constant..the headaches were getting bad, but they come and go..I fight the fatique by remembering to eat and take multivitamins..but there's nothing I can do about the constant spaced out wacked out feeling. So I've kind of gotten used to it. It's like going through life stoned or something...it used to keep me from enjoying anything, but since I've gotten used to it, I just have accepted it as part of my life. HOWEVER -- if there's a cure for it, I'd be all about it!

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Has anybody here tried an anti-depressant for their dizziness? Most say that it has helped them immensely. I guess that will be the next logical step for me.

I went to the chiro tonight, and she didn't seem to find anything wrong, apart from a blood pressure of 190/90! But that's not the cause of my dizziness. It's the result of my anxiety!

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

Dback, all my tests came back normal. blood, CT scan, neurologist stuff....all said I just had prob an inner ear infection that's taking a little longer to leave and that I was too worried about it and should take some AD's for it...all said anxiety at one point or another...lol well having your sense of stability or steadiness in the space of the world thrown out of wack would make anyone panick or have anxiety I would think....anyway so all I can say is I dont know what to say..lol. So basically no real diagnosis except labyrinthitis at the very first,, and that was a guess from the doc...it's crazy... but I def do have anxiety from this and depression and hope I can some how come out of this cloud. what about you?....any diagnosis?...sorry cant remember. talk to ya later.

Re: Who else is dizzy/spaced out 24/7?

No I was just told anxiety too. I just got an ENG and I did not go back for my follow up yet, but I had the results sent to me and they look normal. I know something is not right-I can feel it-- but I may never know...

yes! i've been dizzy and felt like fainting for the past 2 days. it really scares me when i'm driving to work. My vision was blurred too. I went to the doc about 6 mons ago because i was having sharp upper chest pains. everything checked out ok. She said it must be stress. I just didnt do anyblood work. I seemed to get better after the docs visit as if it was all mental. Now i have the same syptoms plus lightheaded, dizzy, and almost a fainting feeling. Not sure what is going on. Maybe stress again?
