Vertigo while in a vehicle, lightheadedness on stairs.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
8 years ago I had a heart attack due to coronary spasm. One month after, while driving, I experienced severe vertigo which lead to anxiety. After that, the vertigo would hit me while driving more often.
3-1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Rocky mountain spotted fever and also tested positive on the tilt table. And the vertigo and lightheadedness seems to be getting worse. I absolutely hate to get in a car. I've been to numerous specialists and have been told that they know something is wrong but hard to diagnose. I have been online and a Dr from UK had me do the march in place test....I turned over 90° to the left, and he stated that it was due to a severe balance disorder. I've been diagnosed disabled and can't stand it. I would rather be driving, working and having a normal life again. Please help!!!!!
