hi lyn-elliott

you should speak with your GP or doctor for referral to ENT (ear nose and throat) specialist as this could be a sign of sinus problems, which are commonly linked with fibro. there are different medicines to treat these.

i have had this it is horrid. my eyes hurt and it gets you down.

I have had a dizzy head for 8 months now. I saw the ENT doctor and had an MRI scan and have finally been diagnosed with Vestibular Neuritis. I don't know how long this will last and have just had to learn to live with it. Not sure if this is connected to fibro or not. Hope you feel better soon xxx

Hi, I also have been having these symptoms for 6 weeks now and went to the doctors/hospital were they diagnosed viral labrythitis. I have been taking prochlorperazine for 3 weeks but still have the symptoms up to now. Hopefully they will work in time. Hope you get better soon xx

Disequilibrium 2 yrs after accident. Good to do physio-swimming, vestibula-related neurophysiotherapy, normal - and frequent - walking, any ball-balance exercises, eye exercises to do with peripherary training. It does all work.
