Re: dizziness not vertigo
Hi tatsu15! Might be worth looking at my previous posts about visual vertigo, but just to let you know i think you may be experiencing similar symptoms to me, although i've also never had ear infections, and the ENT never found anything physically wrong with my inner ear although they speculated that i have some sort of "vestibulopathy". My main problematic symptom is what i refer to as "dizziness" but is probably more a spaced-out, floaty, starey, zombi-like feeling. I've since discovered that i have a spinal problem which affects my whole right side and subsequently affects how my inner ear, vision and proprioception try to compensate to help my balance.
Among many symptoms i suffer from a dull to excruciating (temporary) pain in a triangle around my right ear, top of right jaw, right eye socket and the area directly under my right eye socket (often mistaken for sinus pain). I suffer from tmj, crunchy neck and jaw, light sensitivity, fatigue, imbalance (and subsequent achey joints in the hips, knees and ankles), and many more.
They all relate to my structural problem which is caused by a leg length discrepancy which came about whilst i was growing, but they can also be attributed to injury and bad posture. Please familiarise yourself with sternocleidomastoid, visual vertigo, visual processing, and the effects of TMJ disorder on the inner ear. Hope this helps!
