    Anyone with problems in the shower and bending forward

    With this inner ear disorders like MAV, does anyone find when they take a shower they feel more like their heads moving esp washing their hair? Or feel like the shower is moving up and down? And ladies when shaving and bending forward at any time feel more dizzy?

    Thanks for you help

    I have been diagnosed with MAV although I also seem to have visual vertigo, the sensation of movement when your not moving. Hot showers make me feel more off balance than normal and a bit disorientated. supermarkets and lighting mess me up and only really high pitched noises like car alarms or fire alarms or kids screaming can make me feel really dizzy. I do not shave my legs being a man but I can relate to bending the head forward, feels like a blockage almost in the side of my head, makes me nauseated and not dizzy but off balance. I have suffered now for 2 and half years, just like most people all tests normal. Seen so many people and only a select few have managed to even guess a diagnosis. My meds do not work at all no matter what I try and my last ENT visit disagreed with MAV diagnosis and said visual vertigo. Advised me to start running again. my left eye feels so different from the right and I am much worse if I don't get enough sleep but also too much sleep can mess me up and especially if I lay on my affected side.
    I am just sick of this now, so fed up, just not getting anywhere and we seem to have a lack of knowledge around the vestibular system on how to correct it when it goes wrong. I have been told its not my ears but my brain causing my issue yet it all started for me with an ear problem lasting around 9 months of ear pressure/fullness ,sickness ,nausea ,dizziness , head zaps , ear pain etc all the standard stuff yet before it started I was in perfect health, no colds or flu and was working out all the time at the gym lifting weights and it just slowly came on from out of nowhere. Its hard to live with this when your trying to raise a family and work on even the darkest of times with no help or support from GPs or the specialists we see. They seem quite happy to just keep medicating us and leaving us to live with it. I would love to see the boot on the other foot and see how they would feel and if they could still work and have a life with this illness.

    I get the same sensation when I take a shower. I brace myself against the walls to keep me steady. I also get it when I sit in a chair without arms, standing for any length of time. I had some left over anxiety meds from years ago and take it to control the vertigo when it is severe. The doctor told me they know this helps with vertigo, but they do not know why. I just want it gone.
    They diagnosed my right ear with the vertigo. But, I think it is my left ear. When they did one of the test and blew air into both ears, I had the vertigo when it was blown in my left ear. But, they said I had the vertigo in my right ear. Doesn't make any sense to me.
