For the last 4 days, I have been extremely dizzy. It started as just a slight dizziness but it just got worse from there.

The last time I was continuously dizzy was before I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.
When I asked the doctor (Endocrinologist) if the dizziness was caused from the thyroid issue, he said no. My GP usually just tells me that everything seems fine and she will order some blood tests that always come back normal. Specialists seen include: Cardiologist, Ear/nose/throat, & an internist. Another doctor told me it was probably sinus and/or allergies. I have had sinus headaches but when I get dizzy, it is nothing like that. I am dizzy and I feel a bit of pressure on both sides of my head. :( My family also tells me my eyes look very dull & that I appear to be high. That just makes me frustrated because I have never touched drugs or alcohol or even smoked a cigarette in my life!!!

How is someone suppose to work out if they are dizzy? I will not drive being dizzy. No way! I can't put the safety of others in jeopardy!

I just wish I knew what was causing it this. I have also been getting an on/off cramping pain in my back but it usually goes away.

This is kind of raining on my holiday spirit. emoticon

    Hmm, could it be a blood sugar thing?

    There are many things that cause dizziness and there are meds to help deal with it. Mine is caused by meneires disease, but I was tested extensively before the diagnosis was made. See another ENT specialist and insist on more tests . There is something going on and you need to know what it is. emoticon

    I assume they have checked your inner ear. I know that will make you dizzy if you have an infection. You don't have to have pain in the ear either.

    Do a search online for 'ear crystals'. Some people find relief by resetting those ear crystals. There are some movements to see if that's the problem and to reset them at home, but in many cases it's easier to find a doctor/physical therapist who knows how to do it and have them do it. Still, it might give you somewhere to start searching for relief. If you can get it even a little better by doing the movements yourself then you can approach your doctor about finding a professional to help set them properly.

    My husband has vertigo and works with an ear, nose and throat doctor. You may need to talk to a specialist. Hope you feel better soon. It is an awful feeling. emoticon
