Vertigo? Not sure what, but need advice.

Hi all I'm 25 yr old mother of a 2 year old and a 1 yr old. For the past 3 years I occasionally had dizzy spells where I felt as though I was spinning. I only got tgem like 5 times a year and never really paid attention. This past year I've been getting them slot more and these past 3 months it's been horrible. I constantly feel like my brain is all foggy and I can't concentrate, I feel like the ground is moving when I walk, I get nauseated almost every day. Lots if headaches, and neck stiffness. My eyes sometimes feel like they are moving when I try to concentrate on things, and they are always sore.Bly head constantly feels fogged up and my ears always seem clogged.I lose concentration so easily while talking to people cause I just can't focus in them at all. Some days I wonder if I have a brain tumor or clot.

I'm a 25
5'4 135lbs (lost about 10 lbs this month)
I suffer from PFO (hole in my heart) anemia, anxiety, and psoriasis.
I had a MRI about 1.5 years ago that was fine so my nuerologist didn't wasn't to do another one.

Re: Vertigo? Not sure what, but need advice.

I have no medical experience, but I have an inner ear disorder which has caused many of the symptoms you are experiencing. Even down to problems with my neck including stiffness. Have you not been able to see a Doctor? Because you have other conditions it is probably only your Doctor who can help. If he or she does think it is an inner ear condition, you may be referred to an ENT specialist who will be able to do more tests. I have seen an ENT specialist and I am now seeing a physiotherapist who is helping with vEstibular rehabilitation therapy to help with the damage to my inner ear, and also treating my neck.
The treatment I am having is helping, so do not lose heart, but you must see your doctor.
You can look up labyrinthitis, BPPV, and Menieres disease to see what you think.
Hope you are doing OK.
Best of luck.

Re: Vertigo? Not sure what, but need advice.

Hi. Just wanted to add (i'm not a doctor either), please try not to attribute EVERY symptom you're feeling to whatever is causing the dizziness. It's possible that your feelings of shakiness and coldness are related to anxiety (caused by the dizziness). I dont get shaky but sometimes i get really cold, esp my extremeties, and nauseous, but the two generally occur together, and usually during and after me feeling uptight and panicky because i'm either dizzy or fatigued from the dizziness. Remember that when you're uptight or anxious your body starts preparing for escape (whether you like it or not - a horrible feeling), and a major part of that is the blood leaving your extremeties and travelling to protect your vital organs, and that can leave you feeling pretty cold. And, being aware of that feeling can make you panic even more. It's such a vicious circle and i really feel for you. but just know that most of us on this forum have experienced it, so dont assume the worst (blood clot, tumour etc) but seek assurance from your doc.
It's really important to try to separate the symptoms in this way otherwise you'll have a meltdown. Good luck, we're all in the same boat here x
