Could my 'spacey' problem be my ears?
I've been reading the board for a while in my search to find out just what is wrong with me...and it looks like I might have found the answer!
My symptoms are 'derealization', feeling of loss of balance, heavy headedness, not being able to concentrate on conversations, popping ears every time I swallow and a strange 'the floor is moving' sensation when walking. Being in shops and places like that is dreadful, I feel like I am walking around on a bubble.
I haven't been myself since this started more than two years ago and have had loads of tests - blood tests (diabetes, anaemia etc), and MRI scan, an EGC. Nothing has come up with anything. It occurred to me that it could be a problem with my ears, and my symptoms seem very similar to those that other people have talked about. I mentioned this to my doctor who had never considered it before(!!!!)My appointment with the ENT doctor at the hospital is still 6 months away...
I see that people have mentioned alternative therapies, and that it is possible to get your eustachian tubes to drain with the help of acupuncture etc. If anyone could let me have any information about alternative/natural therapies I would be so grateful. Also, from what I complain of would you agree that it sounds like it could be an ear problem?
I am 23 and can't bear to think I will feel like this for the rest of my life.
