I need some support from the group.  In the mornings my eyes are very blurry so I can't see. Two my legs hardly work. I think I'm just stressed out ALOT! Sometimes I get a ringing in my ear or both and then get dizzy and I about fall on the floor from a chair. gurrrrrrrr I need help and support.

Have you been checked out for Menieres Disease? The ringing ears and extreme dizziness makes me wonder about that.

Hara, my mother-in-law has manieres disease and she descibes the same symptoms that you have mentioned.  She has actually passed out and fallen just walking across the floor.  The last episode she had was when she fell and broke her arm.  That's what the doctor diagnosed her with and she's had it for years.  She actually gets sick at her stomach from it also.
 
You definitely need to get it checked out.  Good luck!
 
God Bless!

With Menieres there's a low-frequency hearing loss. I would certainly get it checked. Good luck, Hara.

In the morning my eyes are also blurry.  I use an eyewash with an eyewash cup and it works wonders and feels great.  I boil 1 cup of water and 1/8 tsp of boric acid, let it cool.  I keep it for 4 or 5 days and make new.

I called my DR's office this morning. They left a message at work for me.
I called them back and told the triage nurse what was going on. She got me in today. The DR I saw was very nice and she is sending me to a Neurologist because there were some things I couldn't do.

I'm glad you got in to see a doctor  that cares enough to send you to a neurologist.  Hopefully, you won't have to wait too long?
 
What kinds of things can't you do?
