  • Is it a mental health thing? Maybe they are panic attacks due to anxiety?

  • Sounds a lot like Vertigo. Everything feels like it's spinning even if you lay down. It makes you want to "hold onto" something to make the spinning stop.

  • i agree with southerncharms i have vertigo and i always feel like spinning sometimes i even feel like im falling and will be sitting down at the time. i am 42 and i only got the symptoms about 5 years ago but they do have medicine to control the dizziness. i would ask the doctor about that

  • Has he been checked for food or chemical allergies? Sometimes somethings as simple as a dairy allergy (which can cause inflammation, infection, or congestion and affect the inner ear) or a reaction to some kind of paint (contain volatile offgassing chemicals), building material (many contain formaldehyde), or even some personal product a roomie is using could have an effect like this. Take him to a doc that specializes in ear-nose-throat and who is familiar with these types of environmental and food sensitivities.

  • Could it be an anxiety attack? Is college stressing him that much? Might be something to check out.

  • It took my aunt forever to get diagnosed with an inner ear disorder that caused those symptoms. I also had a tumor (benign) on my parathyroid that caused similar symptoms. They diagnosed that with a blood test...high calcium...but it was pretty advanced before they thought to look.
