Sue - thanks for writing back. I, too, went to an ear specialist :) Nothing wrong with the ears. They did balance tests and hearing tests and pressure tests, you name it. I have perfect ears. I, too, feel like a bit off-balance. I even bought meclizine hydroxide - otherwise known as DRAMAMINE for sea-sickness, but it had no effect. Have you looked into something called "Depersonalization Disorder?" I have found some fascinating info about chronic feelings of spaciness or derealization. The good thing is that no one really has what is termed "Primary Depersonalization" but rather Secondary ... good chance it's caused by anxiety. The spaciness is the body's way of protecting, or distancing itself from the stress - it's frightening and cruel, but it happens. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my next step. Please be in touch.
