I was wondering if anyone has heard of this problem. My girlfriend has been suffering from an
ear problem for the last 18 months. It all started whislt she was at work (she worked in a call centre)
last July. She left work early one day as she felt light headed, as if drunk.

Shes has the following symtopms :

....not feeling as if she has control over her body
.....feeling as if she is detached from the world
.....sometimes unable to move her limbs
.....feeling unsteady
.....feel as if she is dreaming
.... leading to feeling very depressed

We have visted the best ENT in UK (Leicester) but doctors have been unbale to come up with any
solutions, although they have diognosed her with Oscillopsia, which basiclly means
Vistabular Dysfunction with Visual pretance.

None of the ENT specailist have come up with any remidies, but have suggested that its some sort of
balance disorder and suggested carrying out head exercises that should rest the balance, they
suggested this back September, but they never worked......shes still feels the sama as she did last July.

Shes has also been for an MRI scan which showed nothing out of the norm. My guess it has something to
with her eyes and the way shes sees things and the way the brain interprets these images.

This has affected her really badly, shes was a normal young women (shes now 21) working 9 - 5,
but shes been unable to work for nearly 1year and half, shes hasn't really changed a lot personality wise
but she does look at life differently.

Shes is really sufferening, not in a pain sort of way but more mentally, with thought that she doesn't know
what is happening to her and how long will it go on......she really is scared!

I have never really suffered from any Ear problem (touch wood), so its really hard to describe to you how
shes is feeling, I'm only explaining what she has told me....manu people say it could be psycological,
but I know her and I know shes is not incontrol of what is happening to her. So if anyone can shed
any light pls replyn or mail me on [email protected] and God bless.
