10 year pain — dizziness
Hi. My name is Michael. I have been dealing with some sort of dizziness for a long time. When I’m in the shower and I can see the curtain move out of the corner of my eye it makes me feel like I am falling and need to grab onto something, I feel off balance whe I walk, I can be walking and hit an uneven spot in the ground and feel spinny, when standing and bend my knees a little I get a falling sensation, I see stationary things move on a constant basis (when I was at the doctors I can literally see the wall move close and back like it’s bobbing back and forth, when I stand up and pee and look down at the toilet I can literally see it twisting clockwise and counter clock wise constant and makes me feel sick and anxious), I go on a treadmill for half an hour and when I get off of it I feel really dizzy like my mind is still thinking treadmill and my body is walking in real life and my body can’t make the distinction so I get motion sick, when I drive I feel ok but then I stop and feel like I’m either moving still or the car next to me is moving still and sometimes I see the road stretch as if it’s getting longer as I’m sitting still, I went to Disneyland 2 years ago on star tours the movement and the screen at the same time make my brain feel like it’s spinning inside my head, I had to shut my eyes and hide my face against a family member to try and regain control. When I close my eyes I can help the dizziness go away. I’m sure there’s something I left out but this is what I have been feeling, I’m so desperate for some answers because my health care providers don’t know what’s going on and my grandmas doctor has told me that the major corporation hospital I’m with “is less that good” and i have had to do my own research to what’s going on. I cry everyday and I’m begging for some kind of help. They seem to think it’s because of some concussions in 2006 and other times I have had in the past and hit the back of my head maybe what’s causing it, they don’t know. I’m just so sick of feeling sick. I cannot live a normal life.
