feel like I'm falling

Here is the low down, 7 yrs ago I fell twice, both times to the right I did not lose consciousness but I could not stop myself. Ever since then my balance has not been right. When standing I cannot stand still as it feels like I'm going to fall and this has gotten worse. When I walk now it feels like I am going to fall over. I have had 3 ct's and mri I have been to an ent specialist (twice), my heart has been checked and know one can find out what is wrong. Has anyone ever had any symptoms like this. I have been told if it was anything serious I would have found out by now but this is not so comforting. Thx.pg

Post Re: feel like I'm falling

If you read my post below...I am having the exact same feeling...I feel like Im going to fall or like the floor is moving...I was always told it was just anxiety, or it could be that Im not breathing properly because I have asthma...but its gotten worse lately and its scary. I know how you feel :-( and I cant even talk to my parents about it because they are so frustrated with me from all the panic attacks Ive had worrying that the feelings I got were something serious.

Re: feel like I'm falling

Hi i also have the same kinda thing although i havent fallen over. I have the floor moving sensation and it is scary and annoying. I had a clear head mri, all bloodwork fine and clear chest xray. You both should go to the inner ear disorders page and read up on the "dizzies" you will find a lot of the people there have the exact same thing and know what you are going through will balance issues. they are a great support. some of them undiagnosed too.. also Pgeorge, if it has been 7yrs since its been going on i doubt it is anything serious or progressive. that is what my doctor tells me. good luck
