    I have depression, undergoing ECT. Had an MRI that showed sinusitis. Lots of dizziness, now they want to test me for vertigo.

    Kim I also have bad Vertigo so I know how you must feel. I had a mild stroke this past Oct and apparently it is like a side affect of the stroke. Then I had a mild heartattack in Jan of this year. I saw a Cardiologist and he did an angioplasty and said my arterties are good and I have no blockage but I need to get a GOOD Family Dr and get my blood pressure under contro. This is easier said than done since I live in a VERY rural area of Alabama and don't know anyone who has a good Family Dr. So, I am still looking and hoping.
    I hope your Dr finds out you have something simple and can help you soon.
    Good Luck

    Hi Kim

    Just wondered if you have been checked for anaemia as this can cause dizziness. Also as you have headaches maybe you have tension in your neck. This also can cause dizziness.

    I have a condition called Dystonia and also CFS. I have lots of dizziness which I find comes on when I have overdone it.

    I hope you get sorted out. love and light cara
