Thanks everyone who replied to my earlier post about my loss of balance and faintness. You guys were a great help! I went to the doctor and they actually didn't even consider an inner ear problem. She immediately wanted me to go to the neurologist for an MRI but then we settled for a series of blood tests first. I get the results in a week...until then I am pretty much stuck feeling this way unless it stops soon on its own. I didn't get any medications.
I don't understand why she didn't even look at my ears. I thought it was definitely an inner ear problem but evidently once I told her that I didn't feel like the world was tilting but more that I was just losing control of my body and falling it was ruled out...I am still not convinced. I think it's an inner ear problem but the visit happened so fast and it wasn't even brought up by her that I let it go b/c I was so concerned with everything else she was mentioning!!
