I'm a 14 year old and I have had constant dizziness that has been ruining my daily activites. It's not a spinning sensation, but it still feels dizzy and off. I had this for over a year now.  At first it was BPPV, which I went to neurologist, ent, no one fixed it. They gave me hypertension medicine and meclizin, didn't work, kind of made it worse. But, they referred me to physical therapy and I felt better, no more spinning, but still dizzy. After that, I went to more other ents, they didn't know what the problem was. I have healthy reports on hearing test, no history of injuries. I don't get any headaches nor blurry vision. After various months of going to physical therapy, they thought it was a neck problem, which it wasn't. I sleep well, eat well, and hydrated well. I went to optemetrist recently cause I thought it could be related to the eyes since I can't focus on a particular object for a long time or else the room feels like it's moving. They did eye tests and said everything was okay, that it's not related. I tried taking B12 supplements a few months ago, didn't really help. A physical therapist I went to yesterday confirmed I don't have BPPV anymore. I need advice on people who got through this on what the next steps should be and which specialist I can possibly go to next or help in general because I need to find a solution to this. I still don't know why I'm feeling dizzy. It is ruining my school and life too.

@caramelcorn Sorry to hear your suffering with dizziness. I just wondered if you have anxiety?? Anxiety can cause dizziness, head spinning , it’s no fun. Sorry can’t offer much more

Have you tried Kwells anti sickness tablets for your dizziness. I have used them occasionally over the years when I've had dizziness following ear infections and sinus infections. They are actually for travel sickness. I find they work well but make me very sleepy.

Have you been checked for iron deficiency, blood pressure? Obviously speak to a medical professional before taking anything recommended online. I hope you get some relief dizziness is no fun. Best wishes.

My diagnosis is Vestibular migraines. One of my biggest issues is that eye movement, like looking for things at the grocery store and it causes my nausea, disorientation, brain fog and extreme irritability. My neurologist had me do Vestibular therapy which did help quite a bit.
