Holy shit, dude. That's terrible. But you CAN get better.
I had that problem a couple years ago. When it started, I thought maybe I was coming down with something. A couple days later I knew I was sick. A few days later, I thought I had the flu. I stayed in bed most of the time, because if I got up, I'd be dizzy. A couple weeks later, I was no better. Some days I couldn't drive. I couldn't stand on one foot without loosing balance. It was scary.
I went to the doctor, and she told me "Blah, blah, blah. Might take a couple days. Might take a couple months." Her exercises didn't help, and her drugs made me feel worse.
Next I tried the chiropractor, and he said, "Blah, blah, blah. Might take a couple days. Might take a couple months." His exercises didn't help.
I was coming up on nearly a month of being almost incapacitated, when a friend suggested I go see her acupuncturist. I wasn't a believer in that sort of thing. But I was desperate. I went to meet the guy. He's totally old-school from China. He looked me over, felt my pulse, looked at my tongue, got a grave look on his face, and said, "I'll make you better."
He burned some weeds on my head and belly, then stuck me full of needles. When I left, I felt the same. The next day I woke up, and felt 90% better. WTF? How? I was going downhill for a month, and it was turned around in a day. I didn't understand what he did, but it clearly had an effect. He knows I'm from a white boy culture, and I told him that I didn't understand what he did. He said, "That's ok. I do."
I kept seeing him for most of a year, and even now, I see him several times a year to get tuned up. He makes me a concoction of herbs, which I brew into tea. I don't know what's in his tea. It could be grizzly bear gall bladders, rhino horn, and tiger balls, for all I know. If I have a muscle problem from riding or fighting, he makes a topical stuff that contains, among other things, scorpions and leaches. Not kidding.
There's a solution to your problem, 22. It's just a matter of finding someone who can help you figure it out.
