For the past 3 years I always feel dizzy and with a loss of balance, it seems that im in a boat, walking it gets worst , its getting worst as time goes buy , i feel some pression in my eyes , headaches , sometimes my ear make little noises , my jaw is not okay because I went to a dentist and he said that I had a tmj dysfunction, I did a lot of exames like MRI , VNG , AUDITION , A LOT MORE, but everything is just fine . The problem is that I live in Portugal and here theres no good specialists in this area , i want to go somewhere to do the treatment , but I really dont know where is the good place to go ..since im goin to waste a lot of money travelling , i want to go to some place that is almos 99 per cent sure I will be fine . Can someone help me please ? Is there anybody in my situation ? It has been a nightmare , im only 21 years old , living dizzy its so hard !!

I also had dizziness with my TMJ problems. You may also want to consider having your blood pressure or inner ear checked if you haven't already, just to rule them out. I was told that the dizziness from my TMJ is a result of the swelling near the TMJ that compresses the nerves in the ear canal. I also have partial hearing loss. Good luck and I hope you can find someone to help you.
