      Hi,

      I'm looking for some reassurance. I am stage 3a, NED 3 years (almost)…I've been experiencing horrible bouts of dizziness lately, so bad that I can't drive at times. My family doc thinks its an inner ear infection (no symptoms of this present) and that I'm experiencing vertigo. I want to trust that is all that it is, but…you know how it is….is this something I should see my oncologist about?

       

      Thanks for your responses.
