For almost a year now I've been feeling off balance

Customer Question
For almost a year now...
For almost a year now I've been feeling off ba***** *****ghtheaded and dizzy with head pressure. Been to 2 ENTs neurologist cardiologist and opthalmologist. ENTs said it's eustachian tube dysfunction. Neurologist tested me positive for a balance disorder. Every other specialist said everything was normal. I've taken meclizine and steroids still no relief. At one point for months I felt normal but the past three weeks horrible.

I am sorry you are having this bad dizziness.

you have to accept additional phone consult service fees to talk by phone

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? severe anxiety can cause dizziness.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No the only time I have anxiety is when I'm having these symptoms. Anxiety is not the cause. I also experience a rocking/swaying sensation to the left side while laying down. I had a VNG test done and I have the results if you want to look over those
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 5 months ago

yes, you can send me the VNG testing.

if you have anxiety symptoms when you are dizzy, anti-anxiety medications could still help

have you tried dramamine?

how about scopolamine? these could hep your dizziness

how about epley maneuver?

I tried meclizine doesn't so anything but make me sleepy. And the dizziness is typically light-headedness. Can eustachian tube dysfunction cause that?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I just attached the vng results
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Hello are you still there?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 5 months ago

Canalith Repositioning Procedure is also known as the "Epley maneuver."

BPPV occurs as a result of displaced otoconia, which are small crystals of calcium carbonate that are normally attached to the otolithic membrane in the utricle of the inner ear

the Epley maneuver can help decrease dizziness and reposition these small crystals in your inner ear

based off of the vng results I sent, bppv is what I have?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 5 months ago

your testing was not that revealing.

the testing said that you could try some canalith repositioning procedures such as the epley maneuver and see if that helps.

the epley maneuver is used in patients who have BPPV

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I will try that. But I did want to know If eustachian tube dysfunction and/or bppv causes light-headedness?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 5 months ago

both conditions can cause light-headedness.
