Hello, I’m new here. I’m a 26 year old male and I have been going through the worst 12 months of my life due to this unknown dizziness. I originally thought and still kind of lean towards it being an eye problem as I noticed my vision was making it look like things were shaking/vibrating and this was a couple of months before the dizziness kicked in. But I’ve seen a few people comment on here suggesting that’s part of MAV.
My symptoms are; 24/7 mild dizziness, brain fog, can’t concentrate, eye strain/pain, head pressure, pressure behind eyes, light sensitivity.
So I’ve obviously been to numerous doctors and eye specialists who just think I’m crazy and it’s all in my head. Had an MRI come back okay so it’s nothing too sinister. They refuse to refer me to a neurologist so I’m a bit lost where to go.
I was put on amitriptyline which did help a little with the pressure in the head at first but not anymore.
So I want to get a diagnosis ASAP really and try to get my life back on track. What’s the best route to go down in the UK, I’ve accepted i will probably have to pay to see the consultant as the NHS will be a horrendous wait time.
Which person would be best a neurologist, ENT, vestibular physio?
Also I live in Devon so if anyone could recommend somewhere in this area that would be amazing!
(Sorry for rambling on it’s hard to fit everything in)
Thanks for reading.
