Hey bees need some help! i have an appt tomorrow morning with a specialist an Otolaryngolist(spelling?? idk). THey specialise in ear, nose and throat. My regular doctor tried to treat my dizziness and nausea with meclizine and it didnt work, so she referred me to him.
Anyhow, this is whats been going on. For a few months now ive had dizzy spells. at first it started off rarely, very short lived. fast forward to the last few weeks and at least 4 outta 7 days are spend in a dizzy coma. many days i cant even get out of bed to go to work cuz of it. ive had horrible all day nasuea as well. ( so bad that i thought i was preg, and ive taken like 10 test over the last few months so im very certain i am not). even vomiting on days when the dizziness is so bad. plus headaches ( but those may be due to me trying to cut out caffinee).
anyhow what ive researched ( and im pretty sure by webmd that im dying…. ) is that may be an inner ear infection( which i dont think i had ear pain before i read any of that…and now i do… or maybe i just didnt notice it before? or maybe im a hypochondriac? lol) or thyroid issues or even diabetes.
So, bees any personal related stories?

I get dizzy and faint here and there. Mine is from low blood pressure secondary to medication I have to take. I also get frequently nauseated but I have Crohn’s disease so my digestion is all screwed up.
Have you researched vertigo at all? I’m not a doctor by any means but that could be a possibility. Good your seeing an ENT. (S)he should hopefully have some answers for you.
As hard as it is, don’t put too much time into worrying about what WebMD says. Based on that, I’m convinced I’m dying on a regular basis.

Yes. I would get dizzy and nauses and it turned out to be my pancreas. Go figure.

I’m in the hospital right now, and part of it has to do w/ being dizzy (I passed out a few times, throwing up, extreme abdominal pain, and one other issue). They’re not quite sure what’s up w/ the dizzy stuff yet. If your dr doesn’t know, you can try to see a cardiologist and/or neurologist. My cardiologist had me wear a Haltor Monitor, as well as an echocardigram and i think one other test. If you’re nauseous, ask for meds! I take Zofran and it’s really good

It’s usually related to the ears or to blood pressure. It could be vertigo, or an ear infection, or just fluid in the ear space that is affecting the balance mechanisms in your ear. Good luck!
