for the past 2 weeks I haven't been feeling well.. before i began feeling like this i was spending too much time on the computer and wasn't sleeping enough.. i have felt disoriented, somewhat removed from reality.. basically feeling like everything is a dream.. also my eyes have been fluttering around and i get this shaky feeling internally right above my eyebrows.. i've also been a little dizzy and lightheaded.. my doctor seems to think it's some sort of flu virus but there's no way that's the case.. something has to be wrong with my eyes and my doctor doesn't seem to be taking it seriously.. anybody have any ideas? clearly i need to see an ophthalmologist but how do I go about doing that? i don't know if my GP will refer me to one.. i would appreciate any advice that can be given

i am feeling almost exactly the same and have no idea what to do. i have been feeling disoriented, removed from reality, and feeling like things are dream-like. i also feel somewhat lightheaded once in a while. i am wondering if you have figured anything out or if you have any advice for me, thank you.

feeling disoriented
I have been feeling like his for over 8 months now. It started out being fatigued and now I have painful blackouts whe I strain. I see white flashes that I think are the lights going off and on. I have constant dizziness and vertigo. I cannot look up at all now. I can barely get myself out of the house from fatigue and loss of any muscle strength. every day my ankles and feet are so swollen they look like they are broken. I can push more than three fingers into the swellling and the indents stay at depth of almost 1/4". My hair is now falling out. I drop things constantly. I fall off balance. I used to have a photographic memory. I am anemic, and have an enlarged thyroid with 6 growths around it. I was told it was cancerous, and a second opinion I sought said no just monitor any growth. that was three years ago. My doctor now does not think it matters. I cannot bring myself to care about anything anymore. What ever this is it has worn me down to now even being depressed. I have always been a multi task person on the run. I feel like I am dying with no answer as to why. Just a little over a year ago I was in my third year of working with a trainer, and worked out and walked at least 1 1/2 hours a day. It seems like over night my life was sucked out of me. I lost all strength. My legs feel like they will burst any minute and hurt to the bone. I have just completed many cardio tests and I have a little tachycardia, but that is all they found. The doctors have no idea what is wrong, they just say there is something wrong, be patient we will figure it out. I don't think they will before I die from it. Anyone had these symptoms. There are more symptoms but these control my life, or what is now left of it.

disoriented and dream-like
I am having similar feelings that Jess and Steve mentioned above. Anyone know what might be causing this? Once my doc cleaned some wax out of my ear that seemed to help a bit but I still have this dizzy/disoriented feeling all the time.
Any clues would be great.

I went to the doctor today with the same symptions. he did alot of blood work to check for things like anemia and thyroid. But he had a big feeling that it had to do with the middle ear. he has refered me to a ear, nose, and throat specialist. he is supposed to have all the little tools and gadgets to be able to tell just about anything rong with you whenyou have dizzy, fatique, blackouts . lots of symptions. also try thr eye doctor it could be hypermiopia look it up to see if it sounds like you. good luck to all. there will always be a light at the end of a dark tunnel. katie

vertigo possibly?
I have been having all the same symptoms for the past 3 months. I have been to the doctor and a specialist and they say I am perfectly healthy but I feel disoriented and out of it all the time. This is so annoying and it scares me to go out sometimes because I fear people will be able to tell something is wrong with me.

hello to all Smile well, this is not a doctor's matter...they can't help. First of all, u must know this is a problem caused by a low energy level. We are all energy...we need to feed it up like we feed our fizical body. |But if we don't know how to do that, we can feel at one moment in life, very drained out. Go to see an energotherapist, he can help u on this ! You'll be fine ! You are just more sensitive to the changes in the energy level around you and you need to be more careful about what you receive as energy...
Love and health,
Criss
