Three weeks ago I awoke from sleep in a panic- fast heart beat, short of breath, and sweating. It was diagnosed as a panic disorder (too young to have a heart attack. I’m a 22y/o woman), I had several more attacks always out of sleep and started to recognize each spell began with a very brief sense of spinning when I turned my head. Went to this website. Problem solved… Inner ear dysfunction. Just completed treatment and I’m now fine. Thanks for your help!

Just wanted to send a quick note to express my thanks. For three years I experienced dizziness when I stood up and while walking. Your analysis suggested I might have Parkinsonism which turned out to be the case. I’m now on treatment and the symptoms are gone. Thanks again.

I’ve experienced vertigo for over two years. My symptoms start with a feeling that things are moving around me, then a ringing in my ears, I think mostly the left one, and a sense I’m walking on a moving ship. Sometimes I get really panicky. My attacks can last over an hour. Then comes the vomiting!! I went to my doctor several times and was given medications and antibiotics that didn’t help at all. I’m so glad I found your website. I finally have insight into what’s going on with me. Now I can take this information to my doctor and get this fixed!

I am a pilot who was misdiagnosed with Meniere’s disease by my doctor a couple years ago. This caused me to lose my medical certificate which is required to operate an aircraft. Without a medical, I was unable to work and was placed on long term disability. Fearing that my career may be over, I started doing my research and stumbled upon this website. After completing the questionnaire, I printed my results and got a second opinion with a different doctor. It turned out not to be Meniere’s but the more common condition of BPPV and my condition was quickly corrected. It took me about 6 months to get my medical back so I could return to work. What a nightmare though… thank you Dizzy Anaylst for saving my career.

I have suffered with vertigo for many years after falling and hitting my head. After taking this questionnaire and presenting the results to my doctor, I was diagnosed with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). Finally, somebody was able to tell me I wasn’t crazy. I have noticed that some of my triggers for the onset of vertigo, are bending over or the quick movement of my head backward or forward. I can usually tell when I’m about to have an attack… everything seems to move slowly around me and within a couple minutes, I am lying down for at least an hour unable to do anything! I am now working with a physical therapist and a chiropractor and it seems to be helping.
