Brain & Nervous System Disorders Message Board

Brain & Nervous System Disorders Board Index

I can sympathise with many people on this board who have described symptons indentical to mine. For the past 10 months I have had reoccuring bouts of head pressure and dizziness/imbalance. I went to see a specialist at last after a 3 month wait. He reassured me that it was not a serious disorder and has sent me for some balance tests (again, I'll have to wait for ages for it!). He thinks it could be a damaged nerve that controls the balance......It put my mind at rest, but I stil can't help but feel anxious and worried about my health when I have a bad bout. (As in , I wake up and I'm like it all day). I can't get over the fact that if its a balnace issue, then why does my head feel so congested and heavy? I never suffer from headaches or blurred vision, just that everything is slowly rocking and I can't concentrate on anything.

I am a worrier, you can't just go in and ask or book an MRI scan in the UK, unless its seen as an emergency. All I want to know is that I don't have something seriously wrong, like a tumour, or blood clot.....

I read posts on this site that some people have suffered with this for 10 years or so, and have had every test known, when I read through them, I hope I'm not going to have to be writing these same posts in 10 years time. Yet, at the same time I am reassured, as I know there are people out there (like you good, dizzy folk) who are going through 'it' as well.

Even though a neurologist thinks its a balance disorder, I can't help but worry that it is something worse.
