Customer Question
For several years I...

For several years I have a dizzy sensation. I have neuropathy caused by a severe hepatitis vaccination reaction 9 years. The neurologist suggests that is the cause, the message not getting from feet to brain. I lead an active life but am not always comfortable with this almost out of body feeling. I am 84, play golf and bridge and other activities.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I take no medications, a few supplements. Doctors seem to have no answer. My ears ,etc. have been checked. I do have CRESt syndrome, without all symptoms.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take only multi vitamin, , calcium, mag, D3, Alpha Lipoic acid, Longvida curcumin, and Bio-Strath.

Would like to know bit more on that please . Do you notice the dizziness especially while you change posture like standing from sitting or lying ? Any chest pain or palpitations with it? Does the room seem to spin around you when it happens? Is it a constant feeling ?

Do you feel your feet completely numb ?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
