Well i finally go the letter from the 5th neuro. Basically says, I dont know whats wrong with you maybe see a heart dr.  I have had every heart work up test except a stress test.  Last week was pure misery.  Slept almost 3 days away, I am soo dizzy cant sit up for too long without feeling like im gonna pass out.  Finally on thursday, hubby called dr's repeatedly until someone would see me.  They lowered one of my meds, think possibily i have toxic levels of trileptal in my system. And getting me and appointment at an ENT.  I dont think it has anything to do with my ears nose or throat.  lol  Then he put me on a water pill thinking I have water or something behind the ear causing the dizziness.  DONT THINK SO.  Even with the new pill and reducing the trileptal im still very dizzy, almost all day long, if i move too fast knocks me off balance, even making me sick to my stomach.  Anyone else have this happening to them? 
 
For over a yr now in the shower i have to hold on to the side when i wash my hair cuz when i close my eyes it makes me dizzy.  Anyone else, experience lots (daily almost) of dizzy spells?  So husband, on tuesday when my regular dr is in, is going in and "demand" its so cute when he gets protective that he do the paperwork to get me to a Mayo Clinic.  Hope it goes well for the dr. lol (Hubby is a Marine, and very strong headed lol). 
 
I reread and noticed i repeated myself. hehe I too have been doing that alot lately.  I'll start a story then ask have i said this already, husband will say yes dear about 3 times, or you just said it 5 seconds ago. lol
 
Have a great day

Why are you so convinced that your dizzyness is not an inner ear problem? Those can be notoriously hard to find, and treat. And sometimes are untreatable. But if you don't want/can't see an ENT, you'll never know.

Self-diagnosis by internet is never a good thing.

Im going to go to the ENT anyhow, as soon as they get the referral approved and the appointment. Everything the dr's have said to do, or test to be taken i have done, still coming up with not sure what it is. So gonna go to the ENT, but it yes it might be an inner ear thing thats causing the dizziness, but that wouldnt cause a lesion or the muscle weakness either. If it is for the dizzy spells (that i have had off and more on lately for over a yr) than thats just one thing checked off and dealt with. Then proceed to the next symptom i guess.

Yes, an innner ear infection can cause a lesion. A lesion is NOT specific to MS. And you have all those heart ailments.

No, medicine is NOT always accurate, and especially when you have a host of different symptoms, and go from doctor to doctor, seeing THE ANSWER, and being disappointed, and running off to another doctor for THE ANSWER,

when it would serve you MUCH better if you would stick with ONE doctor -- even a family practitioner, who could send yot to various specialists, find out what they determine..or not determine..and help you sort through the answers. But instead, you go from doctor to doctor and get disappointed, and then go through all the testing with a NEW set of doctors, only to get disappointed again.
