Off Balance..

I have been feeling off balance for about 7 months. When I walk I feel like I am being pulled to the right. I don't bump into things or fall, I just feel like I am being pulled to the right. I went to the emergency, they told me at first it was allergies, so I took allergy medication, but that didn't work. I went to the doctor they then told me it was vertigo, but none of that medication did not have any effect on how I was feeling. Then I went to an ENT and they did not see anything but they gave me ativan that makes me feel some better. I even went to a chiropractor but that did not make me feel any better. The only thing that has made me feel any better at all is that ativan medication what does this mean? Is anyone going through this do you have any answers?
