Hi Christopher,I don't ever think I've heard of dizziness as being caused directly by lackof sight. I did do a google, and what I found were a long list of conditions which caused both blindness and dizziness (such as Neurofibromas), since you didn't say what your loss of sight was due to, maybe it's related to the dizziness as well?If you have a cause for your loss of sight that's not at all associated withdizziness, I'd consider talking to your doctor again, just to be safe, and get checked out for other causes of dizziness. If it really is caused just by your lack of visual input, then I'd guess that it will go away as you get practice in moving around without your sight. I know that balance therapy is available to anyone who has trouble keepingtheir balance for any reason; it's a kind of physical therapy; you could askyour doctor about it. good luck, Chip -----Original Message-----From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On BehalfOf Christopher T Sent: Sunday, August 23, 2009 1:34 PM To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tabi] I'm getting dizzy..can you help, perhaps? Hello, all: I've now been blind for almost two years now and so far I'm handling the mobility and orientation pretty well but sometimes I get really dizzy. I know that my brain is trying to fill in the holes it's missing since losing my sight. I can handle those weird images most of the time: cars driving by, trees passing me, even hovering above parks and houses like superman..but sometimes those images begin to spin uncontrollably and when I'm walking I literally begin to tip over. It's weird and strange and sometimes I think it's going to hinder me from even leaving my apartment.Has or does this happen to anyone? My doctor told me it's called a type ofsyndrome but if it's my brain, how do I stop it? Nothing's worked so far. Any help for something like this? I hope so. Thank you for any responses.
