Tina,
You are not alone. I have an appointment with an ear, nose and throat doctor to try to get some closure on the symptoms you describe in your message. I have been experiencing the falling sensation and dizzy head sensation to lesser or greater degree since I was 18 years old. At 21 years old, I went to a specialist that ran a gammet of tests on my ears. At that point, they discovered I had a 30% nerve damage hearing loss in my right ear (I play drums). I had CT Scan, Choloric tests (water run over the eardrum..very strange) and a multitude of hearing tests...still no explanation for the falling/dizzy head sensations. It affects me now to the point where when I am driving, I sometimes have to pull over to the side of the road...embarrasing to say the least if you have passenger friends with you. My appointment is May 15th. I will let you know what I find out. Let me ask you...do you ever feel like your drifting out of your body when trying to intensly pay attention to someone in a one on one conversation? I have experienced that and had to make up an excuse to cut the conversation short, like, "gotta run to the bathroom"....this is weird and I hope I can learn something that will help people in our situation. I'll be writing soon. Take care...and try not to let the earth move to fast under your feet! -Rob (email)rmabry@telcores.com p.s. my symptoms are causing panic attacks also. My family doctor prescribed Xanax for that....it works wonderfully!!!!

I'm not sure whether or not I have an inner ear disorder. I went to an ENT and had some inner ear testings done and it was negative. I have been suffering from this constant feeling of being "off balance" I feel as if the ground is moving.The only time I don't have this feeling is when I'm lying down. A few minutes upon wakening, the unsteady balance problem begins. I do not get nauseated or feel like vomiting. I started to experience this about a year ago. Unfortunately this caused me to have panic attacks. This horrible feeling of unsteadiness made me feel scared and helpless. I went to a doctor to be treated for the anxiety but doctors refused to take care of this weird dizziness. They told me it was a symptom of anxiety. I have recovered from panic since I am no longer afraid of this unsteadiness being that it's a normal part of my life now. Has anyone experienced such a thing? Even when I'm exercising, I must really concentrate on what I'm doing because I could suddenly fall or something. If there's anyone out there that knows what I'm going through, please respond. I have done a CT scan and an MRI... results are normal. I am currently seeing a neurologist and might possibly do an EEG. I hope we're able to find out what's happening to me...... Please tell me I'm not alone.
