User :   Good Afternoon Doctor,
I''m very concerned about a situation that I'm having. For about 2/3 years, I've been experiencing lighheadiness/dizziness. I went for MRI w/without contrast, CT scans, vertigo test and ct scan of my nasal, all testing we cleared. I've been to so many specialist and I'm not getting any answers. For the past 6-9 months, I'm still having this issues in this matter. They were basically stating that I'm having tension headaches, but when I have this issue, I do have dull feeling is there, but there's really no pain. I've even gone to an acupuncturist. It basically starts of have a heavy feeling in my head also in the nasal area, then sometimes I even get this nervous feeling, feels like a chill feeling. I just don't know what elso to do or who else to see. Thank you for your time, TLC
