Sick of feeling this way

So a year ago I fell unwell with dizziness, it’s not spinning more light headed faint feeling and it does NOT go away. I get headaches sore muscles and very tired. I’ve lost my job my boyfriend and just everything from feeling this way. I can’t concentrate on life and the doctors want me to wait until February to ha e an ENT appointment which I’ve already had around 4! I just want to be diagnosed and get treatment because honestly if I’m not diagnosed in a years time I’ve promised myself to take my life because I can’t do it anymore I can’t work all I do is sit around all day and do nothing I just want to feel normal again no more weird feeling in the head or unbalanced just NORMAL.

Hello Lemon, don't give up, the answer may be something quite simple. I know your symptoms are distressing, but it doesn't sound as if you are getting worse. I cannot diagnose of course, I had a similar experience several years ago, same type of symptoms. I went to five different Doctors and had all kinds of tests with no results. Then the sixth Doctor ordered a hemoglobin test and found out I was anemic . Such a simple test and yet all those Doctors failed to order it. A few iron pills fixed it up. So you also may have a very fixable problem. Let us know. Pam

You can self-refer to the local Community Mental Health team. Call them and ask for a meeting or go to ER in a pinch (prefer the former!)
