2 minutes away from going mad

hi all, i've been reading all your posts and can honestly say they are the only things that have been keeping me sane. I live in South Africa - Port Elizabeth and we have no neuro otologists here. I have been to GP's, ENT's, neurologist, and no body can tell me what is wrong. My GP says it's anxiety and has put me on an SSRI. i am not anxious, but at this point will do what ever it takes to try and feel better. My ENT has also given me SERC. I do not have radical vertigo, it is more of a woozy feeling inside my head. The WORST for me however is the brain fog feeling. I always feel like i'm 2 minutes away from going mad. I feel like i only have half a brain, like i've lost half of my personality. I just keep waiting for it to lift. It has been 6.5 weeks. Does anybody else have this feeling of being confused in their head ?

Re: 2 minutes away from going mad

Sure do...

Do you have an ent that can test for vestibular injury? I would look on the VEDA website...and see if they have a doctor where you are. Honestly, I would rule that out.

I am so sorry you are not feeling well.

Re: 2 minutes away from going mad

Charlotte thank you so much for your response. I had presumed that VEDA would not have any listings for South Africa, but i have just checked and they do have 2. They are in City's far away from me, but at least i don't feel completely lost at sea.

Re: 2 minutes away from going mad

You could call them and see if any local ent's are familiar with them or their practices? I know my current ent that specializes in dizzys was not well known.

Please let me know what you find. If you can't find anything...I will see what I can do.

All the best.
