Has he had his eyes checked? It could be a visual thing. I have spells of dizziness and if I close my eyes it stops.

Hi there:

Does your hubby have lupus? I'm not sure what's going on with him. We aren't doctor here and so we can not diagnose anyone.

I use to have issues with the dizziness and imbalance, but once the Dr figured out that I had Lupus he was able to treat me for vertigo. After 3 realignment procedures on my head I was fixed fine. Sometimes, I still get these feeling with my ear and the dizziness can come back once in a while. I see my PCP and she does the manual movements of my head and I'm fine again.

I hope that your Hubby figures out whats happening with his head and neck. It's great that you're there to support him and offer comfort to him. Keep up the good work. I know if he appreciates that you're standing by his side.

Take care and let us know what you find out about his condition.
