Hi, I have been suffering for the past 7 months with chronic dizziness, light headedness, headaches and occasional migraines, palpitations and chest pains. I have seen my GP who had referred me to a cardiologist, neurologist and ENT. My Dr first referred me to a cardiologist after she couldn t find the cause for my dizziness to have a 24hr holter monitor the results came back as a First Degree AV Block but no further action was taken regarding this. They later done an ECO, Stress ECO, Brain MRI, Brain CT and they all came back clear. My cardiologist wasn t satisfied so he referred me to another Cardiologist interstate in Queensland for a Transcranial Doppler. My results where positive Grade 5 so 2 weeks later they attempted a PFO Closure which was unsuccessful, they could not locate the hole. After surgery they told me it was the first time this had happened to them and they were unsure of why they couldn t find the hole or a reason for the test to be positive at a Grade 5 level and he told me to see a ENT. The ENT i seen done a hearing test, allergy test and another test where they squirt water in your ear. All results come back normal except they discovered a dust might allergy. They later done food allergies and blood tests to check for other virus the results came back with no food allergies but a positive to Epstein Barr Virus. The ENT told me and made me believe it was a rare viral infection from the middle east that could be fixed with vitamins and B12 injections. I went home done some research and discovered over 95% of the population has it, i went and seen my GP the next day to discuss my results which she had sent to her to discover i do not have a current infection and the ENT had lied. I had a slight B12 deficiency so my GP gave me the injections anyway and she also gave me a dose of steroids in case it was Vestibular Neuritis but unfortunately they didn t work. My GP has referred me back to another Cardiologist in Sydney this time my appointment is in 7 weeks. I am not confident any more about My current Dr situation, It seems like i am just going around in circles and i am getting no answers. I have just turned 21 i should be working and having fun but instead i have had to put my life on hold. I can no longer drive or work. Just Before i had gotten sick my Boyfriend and i had planned to move interstate to be closer to our families but we have had to postpone it until i can work again. Please help me i am begging you to please give me some suggestions to what it could be or ideas as to what to do next. I want to start living again and i can t afford to keep having the same tests done over and over again. I am exhausted.
