I have been battling this for two years, everyday and all day. It is crippling. I have asked my llmd if this is caused by lyme and she says she doesn't really know.

Does anyone have this all the time and if so, can you suggest anything to help it at all.

thanks so much

Yes, indeed, it can be caused by lyme. That much I am sure your LLMD knows.

However, it can be difficult to knowjust what the key factors are that tipped the equation, whether if might be lyme, babesia, other tick-borne infections . .. other factors . . . some effects of Rx or OTC you take . . .

it's hard to know just what might be going on. The inner ear / middle ear / vestibular system is extremely complex. Some of the the things to consider:

Topic: TINNITUS: Ringing Between The Ears; Vestibular, Balance, Vertigo, Hearing with compiled links - including HYPERACUSIS

& Ototoxic Drugs, etc.

For now, you might try some GINGER capsules with a little food.

Best to avoid dairy, corn, soy and "vegetable oils" or anything that causes inflammation.

Only a guess here - I'm dizzy when my C1 and/or C2 vertebrae are out of place. When a good neck chiropractor adjusts them, dizziness stops.

Go to an Ear Nose Throat Specialist. Balance is controlled by the inner ear, so it's important to have that checked. Inner ear issues can cause dizziness, vertigo, and a feeling of being off-balance.

I began feeling off balance almost 3 yrs ago diagnosed 1 year ago and I have been treating for Bart , Lyme and Babesia and I am still off balance. I last hearing in my left ear and went through every ENT test to mankind and it is NOT vestibular it is Neurological. I pray everyday I walk better but has not happened yet.

it is one of the worst symptoms. I almost called an ambulance this morning it was so bad. I believe mine is neurological also. No one knows what it is. I'm afraid I wont be able to drive someday because of it.

Did you check with a really good chiropractor? Not only a cervical check, but also check the spine to the head, the occipital-atlas junction.

Keep in mind I'm only guessing, but this has stopped my dizziness, so just self-reporting here.

I have gone to the Chiropractor on many occasions and it is not related to my spine and did not help my balance/walking issues.

I visited an otolaryngologist and he tested my vestibular organ and found out my left one cant be trigerred. He immediately asked if i had lyme or any herpes virus. As i have both its a non brainer where all this comes from. He said that the brain can compensate for it but it takes months. And if the nerve to the vestibular organ regenerates later then i have the same Dizzyness/off balance situation again for some months...

Oh yeah, i bought a balancing half ball or how is that called. It helps to speed up the balance learning process. You stand on it and try to balance yourself.
Also a medicine called "vertigo heel" helps very good. Its cheap and without sideeffects.
You have to DO stuff. Dont lie arround because your brain has to learn to counterbalance with other sensatory organs

EM is energy medicine. It's distance healing that utilizes universal Qi and it's also known to heal people from lyme (those lucky enough to have found it). It also helps with co infections, and chronic health issues. No in patient visits, energy is just sent.

Most people don't feel it, but start to heal slowly as it gets rid of stuff in the body that shouldn't be there, and balances it out so the body has a chance to heal again. It's all done with energy.

You can read about it or watch the EM Level 1 video (it's free) at www.eminusmirus.com There is even a free sort of general health treatment there but click only once though, that treatment lasts for a week (The general health one is not the same as one sent for lyme though).

I have this as a result of P.O.T.S. syndrome which comes from Lyme. I also had it at a more severe level when I was living in a moldy home.

Linda ... I would consider calling in a mold expert. Have them check the levels of mold in your home.
