... So, I am a 21 year old who, for the past 9 months, has had recurring episodes of sudden hearing loss, and subsequently other really weird health problems.

... I'm in 'sunny' old England so our health service is pretty poor as far as I'm aware. I'd like to go to the ER if it meant getting it sorted straight away but I worry that perhaps I shouldn't go there as I'm not strictly an emergency case. I think I will try the doctor again first, I will see a different doctor and will tell him the things you recommended and also about your... (12 replies)
... I agree. Sometimes the doctors can be such jerks. I didn't have any pain in my face either. And NO common symptoms of a typical sinus infection. None at all. The pressure I had was also way back in my head. It felt like it was in the middle of my brain. ... (12 replies)

... Hello Lynn,
I haven't written for quite some time. I was wondering how you've been doing. What are your remaining symptoms, if any?
I just saw a doctor at UPMC in Pittsburgh this past Monday and had all that vestibular testing done. He diagnosed me with chronic subjective dizziness. He prescribed my Imipramine.
I hope you're doing better.

It's vestibular rehabilitation therapy. I only did it two weeks and I needed to do it a lot longer than that. That was almost two years ago. But I do not understand why I was doing better last year. ... (15 replies)
