I've just come back from seeing my GP about my continuing dizzy, unbalanced feeling. As well, as checking for neck instability, I'm very hypermobile and have EDS. So am off for a neck x Ray. A shame they couldn't have included it in last week's brain MRI lol.
I mentioned to the doctor about whether anxiety could be causing some or all the unbalanced feeling. I have a strong feeling I've got PPPD, possibly triggered by a migraine I had 4 weeks ago. There's a strong link with anxiety, stress and PPPD. As well as migraines.
I've tried Stermil and Betaine tablets, for Meniere's. To no effect. I feel off balance most of the time, even when sitting. Like someone is pushing me. There's no nausea, no hearing problems. I've also got rubbery, jelly legs as well.
SSRI'S are sometimes prescribed for PPPD, but my GP suggested propranolol. At a low dose. I'm very wary as I have asthma and its not good for asthma sufferers and I seen it used for hyperthyroidism and I'm concerned about the effect on my hypothyroidism. I believe it reduces FT3.
I'd appreciate some advice please.
