    ,,When I try to get to sleep I often feel like I am falling off the bed, which gives me a jolt of adrenaline that wakes me up". This I have been experience too. But it has stopt now.Must be some nerves playing around I have had too ask my husband to get a hold on me so I don't "fall of the bed,,

    Hallo brother. Same here. Seems we just have to live with it.

    Type in SCDS or SSCD in the search field and you will see what was causing the pounding heartbeat in my left ear.

    Sorry to hear you are having the same troubles, Addi.

    It has been almost 4 years now since the pounding in my head became continuous. I have had zero progress in getting a diagnosis or finding any treatment that helps the pounding. I still have the vertigo as well.

    I have slowly learned to live with it and adapt. I bought a small sports car which made driving much easier. I drive whenever and wherever just like I used to. Before the little sports car I only drove to work and back, which made me a nervous wreck. I could barely stay in my lane. Driving to see friends or my parents was out of the question.

    I also got on a high dosage of antidepressents and ADD meds. These have made it possible to focus at work and stop dwelling on the pounding in my head and vertigo.

    I went through a period of 6 months or so where I had horrible headaches all of the time. I finally realized they were triggered by sleep. Anytime I slept more than 6 hours I'd either wake up with a crushing headache or it would come on in the first few hours after I woke up. I learned to get by with less sleep so I traded the headaches for sleep deprivation. After many months of that I can now sleep my regular 8 hours and not get a headache. I get one of the bad headaches maybe once a month now.

    I often get a quick and sharp pain in my head. I have had these for a couple years now. They fade over 30 seconds or so.

    Anyway, I've learned to cope and have regained most of my life back. I keep checking on line every so often to see if I can spot some solution but I'm not so desperate for an answer as I was 2 years ago.

    Have you read about Semicircular canal dehiscence on the Internet?

    That was one of many diagnoses that was ruled out with imaging. That one was looked for with a CT scan.
