Comment from: Pam, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: September 11

I have no definite diagnosis at this time. For over 5 years I have battled vertigo, dizziness, migraines, and actually falling down. First diagnosis was MS. Then that changed to a stroke. Now, an inner ear disorder. My hearing is intact so the ENT doctor could not help me. My neuorologist now believes it is something with the labyrinth. I have tried numerous medications. Now surgery may be in the future with the risk losing my hearing attached to it. Is there anyone with the same frustration over being unable to accurately diagnose the problems?

I have been suffering with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, my eyes feel strange and heavy.

I get dizzy and sick to stomach and walk like I am drunk. If I bend over it is worse.
