Hey there, I'm new here but I couldn't find anywhere eles to post my story so here it goes,
About 5 months ago I was coming back on a plane from New Brunswick, ON. When the plane began to descend into Montreal I had this weird little stinging in my ear till about a couple seconds after it turned into a full out pain, it was so painful it made my eyes water. It lasted about 20 minutes and it was the worst 20 minutes of my life, until after I touched ground it seemed to ease off.
Well since then I felt very "out of it", disorientated, confused and just didn't feel "real". I thought it would go away but after 2 weeks I started freaking out from it because I didn't understand what was going on so I ran to the hospital and they gave me nasal spray.. Which did nothing
. After 2 months, I got laid off my job because I wasn't working anymore; I was too disorientated. So from there I went to my Family doctor and he didn't know what was going on so he sent my to a ENT, in the meantime I went to a physiotherapist because I thought it was chronic Vertigo, and all test came back with No vertigo but I did have an imbalance, I couldn't close my eyes and stand.
The ENT got me to go for and MRI, CAT scan and bloodwork, when he looked at the tests he said everything was normal, but I had fluid in my mastoid bone. That was it though, he didn't know what was going on.
*I've also had about 13 surgeries on my ears for ventilation tubes
Now 5 months later I'm still dealing with this, it's depressing that no doctor can see anything, when I know something major is going on to be making me So dazed and chronically confused. Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm "flying", almost like a serious lightheadedness.
If anyone has ever felt the same please help this has taken over my life
