I have had upper respiratory problems for many years. This

I have had upper respiratory problems for many years. This has manifested itself with bifrontal and bitemporal pain and lightheadedness and dizziness off and on much of the time. Last nite I was awakened with severe dizziness which was accompanied by severe forehead pain, multi-colored flares of light and feeling of faint. The episode passed in 30-40 seconds but dizziness continued the rest of the night when e.g. turning over in the bed, moving my head abruptly or getting up or lying down again. I experience meniere (sp) episodes from time to time but this session did not feel like one. I use Cyclosporine for Psorisis control but had not used it before going to bed last evening. This is the first time I have experienced anything like the “fireworks”, pain and dizziness I had last nite and though I might get your thoughts on possible causes or treatments. Incidentally, I am 90 years old and have just been declared in excellent health by several doctors after “annual” reviews. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may have. Dennis

Hi. I am a 36year old female. I had thyroid cancer in 2011.I first began to get sick in 2009. Since then i have chronic upper respiratory . I seem to get ill chronically on and off. Sore throat , swollen lymph nodes headaches body aches lightheaded fatigue. I am being treated by a endocrinologist. What else can i do to find out why i am chronically sick. I have seen ents , pcps , and have been tested for autoimmune diseases. Who do i see? What do i do ? I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome also. My immune system is horrible. I get dizzy alot and i have exercise intolerance. I was told i should have a immunoglobulin test done . Is this possibly an indication of chronic epstein barr virus or some kind of other virus? Thankyou for your time. Loren
