Conditions with symptom: 'dizziness'
Does anyone have dizziness and lightheads with perimenopause? Ive had the dizziness for about a year now. Doc is trying a few things but nothing seems to be working. Im 50 and have been going through peri for about 2 yrs so far.
Last year I'd was returning home on a flight and before take off I was reading a mag and had to stop coz I got a dizzy headache, it went off and on with spells of getting hot for a while and that was when my GP said it was peri menopause. It stopped after a month or so and my periods are still regular except once. My biggest problem is thrush which starts with bright red chapped like lips the first morning I wake up with swollen lips. Creams help but sometimes I can't drink hot drinks. A day or two later the vaginal thrush starts, this also coincides with my period. Recently it's happened 3 out of 4 months, GP can't come up with any answers. I'm 51 by the way.
I first experienced dizziness and unsteadiness about six years ago but for the last few years it has been wih me constantly. I have seen an ENT specialist, had an MRI scan but have been told it's not Vertigo. The unsteadiness seems to get worse the further I walk-leaning sideways and backwards like a drunk- and I have feel over a couple of times while out walking with tremendous loss of dignity, my wife now generaly accompanies me. I do not experience any dizziness when sitting, only when I am upright.
I sometimes go dizzy when walking, sitting or standing I have a couple of time gone dizzy when laying in bed. Could you tell me what that can be. I have been to see a specialist who tested me for epilepsy which was negative. I have had a problem with my inner ear, years ago, it was labrythitus, I am not sure if that is how you spell it.Could this be what is happening sometimes?
Iv been told that iv got really bad migraines the ones where they make you dizzy, iv had it for over 6 months now Iv had an mri scan and that came back normal then I went to ENT and they told me I had bad migraines, iv been on every type of migraine medication you can think of and nothing has worked :( I'm constantly light headed from when I wake up and until I go to sleep its ruining my life :'( I don't know how much more I can take to be honest, My doctor is trying me on medication for dizziness now but nothing is working I just want it to be gone I cry nearly everyday its horrible I'm not convinced its migraines because a migraine dosent last for 6 months solid I'm so down and depressed with it all.... And the dizziness/light headedness is getting worse :( please can anybody tell me what's going on....
I was diagnosed with MAV (Migraine Associated Vertigo last year). I do not get migraines and neither do I have what I would call true Vertigo! Quite often people suffering with MAV don't suffer with Migraines. I was put on Gabapentin/Neurontin and they have given me my life back. I still am not myself but the impovemnt is massive. I was constantly light-headed for 2 years. I used to be paranoid about being out in public because I thought I looked like I was drunk when walking. I couldn't focus in a shop because my eyes couldn't cope with looking at lots of things. My legs would go like jelly if i did too much. I could go on and on. I was in a mess and depressed. I may improve hopefully on how I am now but if not then I can cope. I went to see Dr Surenthiran who was featured on this programme. He is based in London but will see Private and NHS. Hope I have been of some help.

I have grommets in my ears and the doctor says there is wax and can't see the grommets for it. I have had dizziness, sore sinuses, fluid draining and building up in my ear. I go to the ENT department at my local hospital for a 6 month check up. The doctor said ENT will remove the earwax because of the grommets and then they will be able to see what's going on or if the wax is the main problem I had a urine infection which required 2 lots of antibiotics and then a sinus infection which I took Augmentin 625mg for several weeks ago. The dizziness etc has continued but the fluid and blocked ear feeling has only been about 7 days. Can you give me any advice and will the hospital remove the wax without having to go back again. It is extremely sore. Many thanks

I have been having really heavy and painful periods for quite some time. I have to use both sanitary pads and tampons at the same time and have to change them every 2 - 3 hours. This heaviness usually lasts around 4 days out of the 7/8 that I am on. Also, while I am on I often pass blood clots and experience sickness and dizziness. Is there anything I can do to help this myself or is the only solution going to see my GP?
Hi my name is nikky I am 16 years old, I failed my physical due to a heart murmur and I am always having dizziness, shortness of breath,chest pains, and feeling like im going to pass out when I play basketball this has been going on for a year and could those symptoms have anything to due with the murmur I haven't been to the doctor because I'm scared that I might get bad news. Please tell me what's going on if anyone knows thanks in advance
Nikky, best you do go to a Doctor, left unchecked could make what ever happen worst, then you will be forced to go... Better to Nip this in the Bud, now... It could be a lack of Iron, or low blood pressure, or could be your heart murmur.. Nikky,burying you head in the sand is not going to make it go away.. Year like this, is a year to long.. Grab a friend or a Carer and go with them.. It might be a mole hill and you are making a mountain in your mind.. Take care Nikky.. go and get it sorted.. m
