I just joined the group today. I've posted in a few threads, but thought I would put all my symptoms out in a new one. It all started early summer (late June). I suddenly was feeling light headed, a little ear discomfort, and getting what I thought were "dizzy spells" feeling like I'm going to pass out. I saw my reg. doc, who said I probably have an inner ear infection, and put me on antibiotics. Also gave me meclizine. After the 10 days of antibiotics, it started getting worse again. I went back, had to see a diff. doc (mine wasn't there that day). He gave me a different antibiotic, and did look in my ears and did the fluid pressure test thing, which hurt, but said it was normal. Sent me off with same diagnosis. After another 10 days, it got significantly worse. So I was refered to a ear nose and throat doc. Who put me on valium, and set me up for an mri 3 weeks later. The valium started giving me side effects, mood swings, forgetting things, panic and anxiety, so I went to the er one night when my symptoms were worse, and got a cat scan which ruled out a tumor, and went back to the reg. doc the next day and got lorazapam for anxiety. They also sent me to a different ent who did a hearing test, and a few other simple tests to rule out inner ear. While he thought he ruled out inner ear, I was refered to a neurologist, and the neurologist did the ent test to confirm or rule out inner ear. The mri came back fine. Blood tests for lyme disease, thyroid, anemia, and pottassium were fine. So I'm waiting for the results of the eng which was very uncomfortable and caused left ear and head/neck pain. After that I've been told by the 2nd ent doc that he can send me to boston to a specialist for "people like me who are hard to diagnose and don't have a common problem". So any guesses out there? I'm not working much from this, and trying to take care of my 8 yr old type 1 diabetic girl who has also been sick all summer (with no results of cause) which is a job in itself.
