Unhappy strange symptoms

in the past 3 wks. i have had a lot of dizziness and nobody can figure out what is wrong. all my blood tests come back that everything is all right. whenever i make the slightest movement it feels like i am going to pass out. i feel this even when i move in my sleep. can someone tell me if they ever had this problem. this is really getting me down.

No, i don't know what the problem is, but i feel your pain. I really do. I hope everything here in the nearest future will be resolved. Sounds like your in the Lords hands. I'll say a prayer. Take care. God bless.

The first thing that comes to mind with the severe dizziness is Mennieres disease. See an ENT doc immediately and get this checked out. In the meantime head to urgent care and get some medication to help with the dizziness until you can get in to see the doc.

PC, have you found anything out? I have had experience with severe dizziness also, but know you need to rule everything else out first. If everything else has been ruled out, either go to a neuro. or a back specialist, and tell them your symptoms and ask to have your trigger points checked. This is a very commonly missed condition where the muscles in the upper back and neck have been strained ( you don't need to have any pain with this ) and these muscles press on the blood vessels affecting the oxygen supply to the brain. It is shocking what symptoms this problem can produce. I had dizzy spells, was light headed all the time, I could not remember things, could not understand anything, etc. All my symptoms stemmed from this one overlooked problem and it took me 6 months to figure it out and get help at physical therapy.

Another possibility is not enough cerebrospinal fluid [CSF] in the brain and/or spinal cord. This may be due to a leakage, trauma [rupture], radiation, chemo therapy [including spinal tap/intrathecal therapy/ lumbar puncture] or because for some reason your body is no longer producing enough CSF.

Some inner ear problems/infections can also produce these symptoms. As can some classes of antibiotics [e.g. erythromycin].

Try to chronicle all of the events [overall health, illnesses/infections, meds/supplements, diet, sleep, exercise, activities, weather, travel, etc.] from about a month before your symptoms first appeared to the present day. Include everything and try not to second-guess yourself while doing this. I have used this method and have found it very useful in helping to narrow the probable causes.

Good luck,
