Customer Question

NOTE: This has already been submitted today but you can’t find it as my account has just been done!
Dizziness when standing up has occurred for many years, cause unknown, but only sometime after retirement in 2000.
2003 October 13 - Collapsed in my office at home at 9pm.
A few years earlier I had collapsed and passed out for 10 to 15 minutes when getting out of bed one morning at our holiday apartment.
2004 Stomach pains/internal cold/sweating on and off for years.
2005 Stomach pains: Trying Nexium
2008 Stomach pains, some dizziness especially after food or tea, Heart failure from a virus, Cardioversion cancelled as heart now back in rhythm
2010 Stomach pain & bloating. Severe dizziness after eating, wonky & tired.
2011 Stomach pain, bloating & dizziness after eating/drinking
2012 Stomach pain, bloating continues with hot/cold feelings like in 2004. Dizziness increasing to ***** hospital specialist Dr John, which resulted in Dizziness now continuous,
then Extreme – worst ever.
2013 Severe dizziness & getting worse. Stemzine not effective
2014 Heartburn & indigestion, plus bloating, cold feeling & internal shaking/shivering with cold sweats, sever dizziness, breathing problems. Pariet not effective. Dizziness reduced by ⅔ but still non-stop. Severe back pain commenced. Dizziness cured later in the year: both improvements by altering some medication & dosage times (Losec in the morning & Digoxin at night).
2015 No dizziness or breathing problems for first 6 months. Back pains altered in mid-year. Dizziness recommenced in December: Autoimmune disease caused Polymyalgia Rheumatica to be diagnosed & then commenced Prednisolone in December & then all symptoms including back pain cured temporally for about 1 month.
2016 Dizziness now again in January, continuous and severe at times after about 9 months of little or none. Back pains recommence as Prednisolone reduced, then reducing monthly. Dizziness now increasing. Physiotherapist’s back pain treatment caused increased temporary severe dizziness. Intermittent indigestion increasing. Dizziness now whilst cleaning teeth with electric toothbrush & also when electric shaving. Altering some individual medication times not effective.
Audiogram 2 hour tests by Ear Nose & Throat Surgeon in June provided no help.
MR imagining of the cervical spine by Neurologist in July found no evidence of abnormality.
Ultrasound of neck arteries in July found no abnormality.
Further information is available if required.
As dizziness continues unabated and all medical help so far is ineffective, what else can I do or try?
Please advise. With thanks, Rod ***.

I have just paid AU $42 as previously requested - do you now want another AU $42? Nothing like this has ever been mentioned before AND it was supposed to have been a deposit of only AU $5 before any further charge after your answer!. Please keep to the agreement.
