    Prayers needed

    I haven't posted about this much, if at all. Lately i've been dealing with some balance problems. I knew in the back of my head it has the potential to be serious, but didn't want to make a big deal about it until now. I initially went to the doctor after an episode about a month ago that alarmed me. One morning I stood up from bed and immediately fell over unable to keep my balance. Throughout the day it got better, but I fell over a few times when I moved my head around. I saw the doctor that day and he determined there was indeed a balance problem. Since I'm young he ruled out blood pressure problems. He diagnosed me with Labrynhitis and gave me some anti-nausea pills. They helped with the symptoms sorta...

    He said there are a few reasons for this balance loss after ruling out blood pressure. The first being a viral infection; the second is damage to the inner ear (I guess there is a ‘stone’ in your inner ear that regulates balance that can come loose from trauma and cause balance problems) or third is something pressing down on my balance center in the brain or on the inner ear canal itself. He also said then if it doesn’t clear up within a month, or gets worse, I need to come back. It could be something more severe then a viral infection and if it were viral it would clear up on it's own.

    For the last month I have had bad problems on and off with dizziness, severe (eyeball/ear) headaches, balance, ringing in my left ear, sensitivity to soft noise and some minor fuzzy vision which I only get with the headaches. I’m going in tomorrow for another doctor’s appointment per his request. Then possibly a CT scan shortly thereafter to rule out any tumors or other growths early so we can go from there and treat whatever this is. If in fact there is a growth or tumor we can catch it early and remove it. I hope to God it’s not a tumor I will keep you all informed. Thanks for the prayers in advance.

    So I went to the doctor today. He said I have Benign Positional Vertigo/Labyrinthitis. I can't say I'm satisfied with that diagnosis mainly because I had a laundry list of symptoms and he only heard dizzy and went from there I tried to reiterate that there was more then just dizziness and the dizziness wasn't triggered by movement, that it was random. In addition I have sensitivity to certain noise, bad headaches, some blurred vision etc... he looked in my eyes to make sure there was no pressure on my eyes or optical nerve from a growth. He said my eyes looks clear, that the vertigo can cause these symptoms too, but really didn't explain why or how they do.

    He did explain what was causing the dizziness which is what I was told last time. I guess there are tiny 'stones' in your labyrinth in your inner ear that can come loose. When they move around and hit the hairs that sense movement it can make you dizzy or loose your balance because it tricks those hairs into thinking you're moving when you really aren't.

    He did offer me some treatment options for the symptoms only, and basically said it would clear up over time. To be honest I felt brushed off

    I'm going to make another appointment with another doctor to get a second opinion just to be on the safe side. I figured at a minimum he would order a CT scan just to rule out the worst. No such luck... so I'm back at square one again.

    I'd insist on a CT scan, if I were you.
