Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
From your description, it seems to me that your imbalance is due to a problem in your "inner ear" called as MENIERE'S DISEASE.
Some of the symptoms include balance disturbance, lightheadedness,
headache,vague feeling of uneasiness etc. The exact cause of this disease is unknown. In some people there have been found certain "triggers" which can set off these attacks.
These triggers include stress, overwork, fatigue,too much salt in the diet, emotional stress etc . In your case driving for 200km could be attributed to stress and overwork.
I suggest you to consult a "Otorhinolaryngologist" (ENT surgeon) for evaluation and treatment. Hope this helps

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Low back pain, joint discomfort and imbalance. falling towards right.. This suggest neurological problem (cerebellum). Since the symptoms recovered 10 years back and it is appearing after long drive, some posture putting pressure on cerebellum. You can get dynamic CT scan at crevical spine once for diagnosis. Consult your neurologist for examination and management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
