... hi JonathanP, I just came across your account of the symptoms you are experiencing
and like many others I can fully identify with your suffering. It truly amazes me to find how common this complaint is, cutting across age sex and nationality as it does. T.G. for the internet.
However, the one thing I have in common with you is working on a computer; my assumption is with the... (19 replies)

... If you are dizzy 24/7 no matter how your head is positioned it is not BPV. Have you ever seen a doc about it? Were you sick with flu like symptoms before it started? I also shower at night because I seem to get better as day goes on. You need to get an MRI of your head to make sure it is not MS or brain tumor. Dont let it get you down if it is, you can live a full life with... (19 replies)
... Its more then just vertigo and it did not start right away with the dizzness. I now feel bad 24/7 too, but when i shower it makes me feel really messed up. Late at night seems to be the best for me. Im going to another neurologist next that specializes in MG and other disorders. I first noticed the dizziness as i was cleaning my tires in 2001. I thought maybe it was the... (19 replies)

... Dback, I feel bad all the time 24/7. In the morning when I get out of bed I feel more dizzy and spaced than I do when I go to sleep. I just feel really fatiged in morning. When I shower in the morning it makes me feel more ***** and spaced.

... Daniel if all that happened after you were wrestling and you may have taken a blow to the head you might want to look into a condition called BPV. We have these little calcium deposits in our ears. They move around in a canal to help keep you balanced. Sometimes they fall out of the canel, like if you take a blow to the head. When this happens it will make you dizzy. Sorry I... (19 replies)

the only thing that is bad for me in that list is moving opposed to sitting.
not quite sure what you mean by riding not driving? If you mean being a passenger in a car then that is fine for me, i find driving more difficult. Before i had a relapse... (19 replies)

... Hi Jonathan,
I read your post with such sadness and hurt for you. I am now 68 yrs old, but my dizziness started when I was only 18. I don't want to discourage you because there was little known about dizziness or vertigo when I first had my symptoms, thus I lost hope. Quite the contrary for you, I think there's lots of hope for you, so please don't use me as an example.
