Hi. I am new here. I am a 6 month sufferer of vestibular based dizziness on the right side of my head. My condition has deterioriated so that I can no longer drive or work. It's really hard because I am used to being so active. I have had all of the tests and while they show there is an issue on my right side, we can't find the source. I am so very frustrated and I miss my life. Family and friends don't seem to understand. The whole right side of my body is now malfunctioning because it is trying to hold the right side straight. I'm not really falling over, I just feel like I am. Do any of you have a similar issue? Steroids worked for a while, but they are weaning me off them. I'm afraid I'm just going to cease any kind of functioning. I need assistance and don't feel like I'm getting the answers I need.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
