Unhappy 4 Years, no answers or relief.

First of thank you to all that reply it means a lot to somebody in pain seeking answers.

I am a 30 yr old male 6' 3" 215 lbs, I have been suffering from an off balance detached feeling in my head for 4 yrs it happened one day and have not been right since. I have a constant throbbing/pulsating sensation in my head at all times fast heart rate (diag,hypertension taking hctz),pupils are different sizes ,constant headaches , nausea,pain in my arms chest pain and spine/neck tension pain issues,ear pain , so far i have had 2x mri one with and one without contrast nothing has been found, I have had the water tests and air test on my ears nothing .I dont know how I am still alive with all the blood work i have had done , been through chiropratic care ,acupucture ,4 x er visits (panic/anxiety attack related caused by my problem ) , numerous medications nothing helps,trying herbal remedies nada , also been to a physcologist for "mental health" issues nada. This starts every day from when I wake up till I go to bed almost like a liqoud cloud is surrounding my brain preventing me from feeling balanced , this has caused numerous panic attacks and anxiety that something is seriously wrong , my heart -ekg ecc,nada everyday is a challenge for me as I lost my job due to this the only time I feel in control is lying down not moving "Worthless"
Everything feels like it is radiating from where the spine meets the brain also my ears feel like they want to burst at times the only thing that I can function off of is my valium 5-10 mgs 2x's per day but even that is wearing off .I pretty much am housebound, visual stimulates cause more off balance as well as auras,(movement ,patterns ) and as well as audio stimulant , certain smells -chemicals,perfumes,I have also been tried to be healed through a spiritual healer and no results yet . I would like to know if anybody feels like this or has gotten answers or cured maybe even supress there symptoms somehow .I am open to suggestions thank you and god bless.

Re: 4 Years no answers,or relief

It seems logical that many or all of your symptoms could be caused by migraine. Migraine is not just a headache disorder, it can also cause balance problems, and even strange neurological symptoms. I would highly suggest asking a doctor about migraine, and avoid migraine diet and lifestyle triggers. If this does not provide relief, then try a migraine preventative medication.

There are many things that can cause your symptoms, but this would be fairly logical.

Hello Seeking Relief! Just now read your post on here....What a drag. Have you had any progress since August??
My vertigo is related to certain food's, and keeping the "pipe's clean". I wrote a bit on a thread about the Candida Albicanis (Yeast Spores) connection for SOME folks who suffer with certain forms of dizziness/vertigo.
Hope you soon find success, and good health.

If your dizziness is related to foods containing caffeine, MSG, Nitrates, or Sulfates, the MAV is also very likely.

Re: 4 Years no answers,or relief

I just re-read SeekingRelief's original post. I just noticed that he mentioned visual auras. I did not notice that the first time I read his post. Auras are a migraine feature. And since they happen during the dizziness, this means we can assume he has MAV, unless some other cause is found (which hasnt happened yet).

Additionally, the feeling of ears wanting to burst is very common in MAV.

Even more, many MAV patients find temporary relief with Valium.

Everything he mentioned is a textbook case of MAV.

Re: 4 Years no answers,or relief

Just joined up to this site today because I have had the exact same problem for the last 2-3 months and it's really starting to get me down. Almost everything you explained is the same as what I'm experiencing, throbbing/pulsating in the head which is often accompanied by a numb feeling on the top of my head. Although my pupils look fine and the only time my I get nauseas and heart rate goes up is when I'm worrying about what this could be, it could also be due to my anxiety.

This started for me one night when I couldn't sleep, think I had a bit of a panic attack, every time I laid down on my bed to get to sleep my heart would race and I couldn't get to sleep no matter what I did, this is when the dizziness started to happen, I then took a sleeping tablet to get to sleep. Woke up that same day and still had the dizziness.

I've been to my doctor and he seems to think it could be an inner ear infection or vertigo (I've been having some problems with my ears for years, mainly just loss of hearing in my left ear) the Doctor gave me some medication which I'm still taking called Serc-16, a week after taking them the dizziness pretty much went away, but two weeks after no dizziness it's starting to come back even though I'm still taking the medication, I have another appointment to see my Doctor next week to see what he says about it.

I hope we can both get through this, it's a horrible feeling

Re: 4 Years no answers,or relief

Hi wow it sounds pretty bad, I've heard of a really good place, House Ear Institute, please check it out, I've heard from many people that they are really good about finding out what's wrong and fixing it. I too am having many symptoms but mine are very minimal compared to yours. Please let me know how you are doing today?
Take Care,
Marrie12

Re: 4 Years no answers,or relief

Thank you for your time and input.I am interested in seeing if my problems would respond to what you are currently doing with your diet is there any books,docs I could read or purchase ?. at this point I will try anything. One interesting thing that has progressed since this post is that both of my arms are now feeling pressure in the biceps, and heavy.It also feels like nerves being pinched in my elbows,also a uncoordinated feeling while moving my fingers on both hands wierd to say the least. Symptoms still seem to be very persistant I did have a ultrasound on my upper G.I. tract came back .I did see another ear specialist this week and they say this is not ear related back on the rolercoaster I guess. I do appreciate your reply it means the world to me I hope you have a blessed day and any info you can give me will be put to good use .
