Hi guys this is my first post and in fact a long one I would say but here it is... I do appreciate any help and I look forward to giving some help as well.
Been dizzy for 3 months. Feel really heavy today I have no clue if its worse today from the three meds at once, but here is my story. Saw my regular doctor, an ENT, and a Neurologist today about my off balance feeling that I have 24/7 since March 1st with miniscule breaks in between of feeling OK. I had a dizzy spell March 1st after a night of heavy drinking, and 3 days of the most stressful event of my life splitting with my girlfreind after living together for 2 years and she took my dog from me. Still hurts me about the dog to this day. I have had panic and generalized anxiety disorder for 12 years. I am a 26 year old male. Xanax seems to help the dizzy feeling (feels like im walking on a water bed or an elevator) even looking around from the bed sometimes I can notice it, I get very nervous. I am having trouble sleeping as well the last few nights up every 1 hour or more. NONE of the doctors I saw thought I needed an MRI or CT Scan. I am deathly afraid of a Brain tumor or MS or something serious. Does this sound normal? They all pinned it down to Chronic subjective type of dizziness and it will be there as long as I worry and constantly think and look for it everyday. Prescribed me meclizine and Haloperidol 0.5mg. I definitly am dying of something and no one knows. I pace around all day thinking of how awful and heavy my head feels, and how much panic I have, and just the feeling of being off balance and dizzy. I can drive, I can do normal things MOST of the time. Yesterday my neuro sent me for a CT Scan of the head JUST for reassurance as he was sure nothing was wrong besides anxiety or something or other. My insurance wouldnt cover it, so I didnt get it. It was 3000$. So I went back and told him and he said it was only for reassurance. If he thought something was really wrong, would he have pushed for the scan. What do you feel. I am going crazy here. I am too young to be dying. I cant live a normal life. I have no idea how and if its even possible to have these symptoms even when im NOT anxious. I saw a chiropractor yesterday afternoon I think he made it worse who knows.
I just woke up 10 minutes ago, after terrible sleep... my head feels like its 90 pounds, my vision is slow when I look around, and I feel off balance and it just doesnt feel right, I cant take the feeling anymore than it is its been too long I am out of ideas!!
