Hi. I'm 29 and a male. I too am experiencing dizziness and lightheadedness. I have a slight pressure in my head and some neck pain. I feel out of it and foggy if that makes any sense. This occurs 4 to 8 times daily and can last anywhere between 10 minutes to 3 hours. I have been to the doctor and he ruled out bloodpressure, thyroid, kidney, and anemia. He is sending me to a heart specialist and to have a sleep study. He said once he rules out those he will get me a CT scan. Has anyone ever had these symptoms?

Re: lightheaded

Hello, I have all of these symptoms plus more!! Have they tested you for meningitis? A few years ago when i had only your symptoms I was tested for that apparently a stiff neck or neck pain along with a couple other symptoms are a key sign for viral meningitis. I have your symptoms all day every day for the past few months and have had tons of test but have received no results yet. I am having a VNG test done tomorrow so hopefully that works but I would say def stay on top of your doctors to get some answers. Good luck!

Re: lightheaded

I would suggest seeing a Neurologist and ENT. There are lots of possible causes, from simple to serious.

Are you sure that the head/neck pain is connected with the dizziness? Did the pain and dizziness start at the same time?

Bellasmo1, good luck with the VNG test tomorrow!

I hope that both of you find the cause of your problem and can start a treatment quickly.

I have all your symptoms plus nausea 6 weeks now. I am waiting for blood test results and have been referred for a ct scan. (GREAT STUFF) They think its Labrynthitis But we will see. Please update as soon as you find out a diagnosis

Re: lightheaded

Hello, well i have had a rough week!!! This past weekend i was extremely short of breathe and had chest tightness. I went to the emergency room 2 days in a roon in which they told me i had bronchitis. Monday i still could not breathe so i went to my primary care physician who had me get a catscan to check for blood clots on my lungs. From their i was told i had fluid around my heart and had to have an echocardiogram at 8am. I am still waiting for those results but at this time it doesnt seem that my dizziness is ear related. Good luck to you and do not stop searching for answers until you find something.
