Chronic dizziness and vestibular migraines

@natvlk I would recommend seeing a spine specialist and/or a physical therapist who has knowledge of rehabbing spine issues. When you get neck muscles spasms it can move your cervical vertebrae around which can cause dizziness. There are some spine issues that alter blood supply in the vertebral artery like Bow Hunter's syndrome. If you feel like you've eliminated other possibilities and no one knows, it could be a physical alignment problem that physical therapy may help. I am a spine surgery patient and have had muscle spasms cause dizziness.

That is a good thought, although the feeling I am experiencing is more lightheadedness than vertigo dizziness (the two are so hard to tell apart, but the room is not spinning for me, more of a weird fog sensation that my head is moving and my vision is blurry almost 24/7). I also get pressure on my face near my sinuses (why I went to the ENT in the first place), sometimes I get headaches but not always. I have also had no relief from the feeling for 5 months. I will look in to physical therapy though to see if it would be something that would help. Thank you!
