Hi everyone, Thank you for creating such a wonderful resource. Here's my story how I ended up here. Up to 5 years ago life was going on as normal. I had been highly stressed for years. Kids, work, job etc etc. Loading more and more self pressure on my life. I then took a long haul flight and came off the flight feeling like I was on a rough boat. this lasted for more than 24 hours. I then happened to google the symptoms and came across mal de debarquement syndrome (mdds). Mdds is a little known condition that typically occurs after a long flight or cruise. Very little is known about it, but the general theory is that the brain gets stuck in a pattern after sustained motion (such as flying or on a cruise). I read and read and the more I read the more scared I got (reading about how some unfortunate people have this for life). My fear sent me into a tailspin. This is definitely what I had and I didn't want to become one of those people that had it for life. I therefore went kind of crazy researching and researching. Seeing everyone under the sun. Spending money on consultants like there was no tomorrow. It's only now that I realise the fear was probably fuelling everything. I spent money I didn't have seeing every possible consultant and healthcare practitioner. No-one could help or really knew what to do with me. MRI was fine. Neck xrays were fine. etc etc etc. There was no real good reason for my dizziness. Round and round I went. Trying everything under the sun. Over the last 12 months I have been leaning towards underlying anxiety and fear being the major source of my issues. Some conscious stuff, but also some deep stuff, lazing deep in the subconscious. I now I should also add that I developed other conditions shortly after the dizziness started. Fatigue. Sometimes bordering on chronic. Double vision. 24/7. Again opthomology/opticians etc have no answers. I now believe I have a dizziness condition know as Persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD). "Persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD) is a newly defined diagnostic syndrome that unifies key features of chronic subjective dizziness, phobic postural vertigo and related disorders. It describes a common chronic dysfunction of the vestibular system and brain that produces persistent dizziness, non-spinning vertigo and/or unsteadiness. The disorder constitutes a long-term maladaptation to a neuro-otological, medical or psychological event that triggered vestibular symptoms, and is usefully considered within the spectrum of other functional neurological disorders. While diagnostic tests and conventional imaging usually remain negative, patients with PPPD present in a characteristic way that maps on to positive diagnostic criteria." Basically PPPD is dizziness caused by the fear loop. Becoming over sensitive and tuned in to the dizziness. etc. So a month ago I read Sarno's book and I've been reading through this excellent forum. TMS seems to fit. I know Sarno mentions dizziness as likely being TMS. I still have my doubts, however. For one, I think the double vision seems unlikely to be TMS (even though they can't find any cause - I've had it for nearly 5 years now). Also Sarno's work is very much geared towards back pain and not dizziness. Thoughts and advice, welcome. Thank you for listening.
