Hi
I too suffer from dizzy spells and have passed out on many occasions (last week was full of dizziness/fainting - not fun!) I tend to get these dizzy spells alongside headaches - what about you? I find that a sugary drink helps a lot when I the room starts to spinning - something about the sugar hit seems to ease it off. Oh, I also got told by the doc that I had an ear infection last week - this in turn can send you off kilter and make you dizzy. Perhaps worth checking out?
:hugs:



ps. Sorry if that post was all over the place - soooo tired today!

Hi Emma, I've had problems with dizziness and balance or the last 10 years plus. Initially I was diagnosed as having Meniere's Disease because of this, which turned out not to be the case. It was down to an audiologist that remembered me from my first appointment for balance tests that put the drs onto the possibility that my dizziness/balance problems might be related to migraines, which thankfully meant I didn't have to go thru the tests again.

Over time I've fell down the stairs and knocked myself out, lost my balance when I've been out and been accused of being drunk or on drugs by ignorant people that think they know everything, and fell over for no obvious reason on countless times. I constantly feel giddy/dizzy and when I walk it seems as if the ground is coming up and over, the sky is coming down, and everything around me is swirling round so fast that I'm going to be caught up in the middle of it all. I also have an awful feeling of pressure/fullness in both ears just to add to the tinnitus and fuzzy hearing :roll: along with the constant headache that is always verging on migraine-intensity and flares up into a full-blown one virtually daily :cry:

What Kelly has said about ear infections is right, and if you've got any new symptoms or feel that things are getting worse, it's always best to check it with your drs just to be sure :?
