Re: Vestibular disorder
Hi. Just read your post. I had a really difficult time trying to get a diagnosis as well. I've been to several doctors including my primary doc multiple times, two ents, an opthamologist and nothing. I have researched docs who specialize in vestibular disorders and I am making an appt with a neuro otologist or a otologist. I can empathize with you about being in a crowded place or even out with friends. I am always on edge because I can't fully enjoy myself like I once could. It is very frustrating and upsetting I'm trying to cope, it's been over a year now since my symptoms have started. That sounds like a really incompetent and horrible doctor you had that sent you a letter saying they couldn't see you anymore. that's the sad part about doctors today they arent willing to take the time to actually LISTEN to the patient and find something, they assume you are making it up or the symptoms are anxiety related or psychological but the truth is my anxiety has been through the roof because of all this, i wasn't normally an anxious person but now i'm always anxious because i'm dizzy. I just feel robbed of my old life, now i'm so limited in what i can do/what i want to do.
