    Near-constant Dizziness and Headaches

    Hello all,

    I have been suffering from dizziness and headaches for almost nine months. I have some ok days and some very bad and distressing ones, but without fail I have symptoms everyday. My doctor says he has almost run out of theories and tests to give me. I've had an MRI, seen an inner ear specialist, a physiotherapist and sought a second opinion from another GP. I am on a waiting list to see a neurologist. I am now on antidepressants for the first time in my life, to try and combat the extreme anxiety I'm dealing with.

    My dizziness isn't so bad that I would ever fall over from it. It is more of a subtle feeling, steady like a "presence", but it is un-ignorable, especially at its worst. I also have headaches which vary in severity and placement in my head. These are usually brief. Almost without fail I have these symptoms at about noon and 5pm, but also usually have dizzy spells at other times during the day - especially at night and first thing in the morning. My vision is also a unusual, with lots of "floaters" that look like migraine aura, although I'm not sure this is related.

    It has gotten to the point where I can barely work or experience restful sleep.

    I have recently come to the idea that I may have mould in this old house of mine, which is making me sick. Neither my wife nor children have shown any symptoms, but I imagine toxic mould would affect different people in different ways. There are no major signs of mould, either visual or smelt, but I suppose the house isn't as watertight as it once was.

    Has anyone had similar symptoms, be they as a result of mould poisoning or other conditions? I would greatly appreciate any response, as I'm a desperate man these days.

    Thank you very much, James

    Mold allergy can raise all sorts of problems with a person. It can make your head fuzzy, give you headaches, throw you off balance and the list goes on and on. If you have not seen an allergist, you may want to do that. Good luck.

    May I suggest you google electromagnetic stress. I have known a couple of work colleagues who have been affected as you have, by the amount of electrical and wi-fi devices in the home. You can be very susceptible to this at night time and often the bedroom is where many of these devices are, the worse being cordless phones and clock radios. Like you, one of my colleagues had all the tests going, all came back as normal and when I introduced them to this subject, they replaced things with corded versions and the headaches and other problems went.

    Thanks very much for your reply Ancient Heart. This is a curious theory, and one I've never heard of before.
