    I'll try to help you and we must go systematically. Your problem may be trivial like something with your eye muscles.. But no. Because you have other symptoms like dizziness and headedness that may indicate a damage in blood circulation. By the way, do you have a low blood pressure?

    Especially for lightheadedness is caused by a momentary drop in blood pressure and blood flow to your head. Please,remember this.

    Also, allergies, , stress ,anxiety, virus, can lead to these symptoms. Sometimes a bad rhythm of heart can provokes it, like you have mentioned palpitations.

    On the other hand, inner ear disorder, injury of head, decreased blood flow to the brain, noncancerous tumors of the brain, or cancer lead to loss of balance status.Here's three quick advice to help yourself for what I said above.

    1} Lie down for 2-3 minutes in these cases and slowly standing up.

    2 } Drink mineral water with 7,4 and more pH.

    3} Drink ginger tea , at least 3 cups on day.

    But now , I'm going to tell you what I really think about your situation.

    It is true that I thought about blood circulation problems you for sure have,but because you speak about difference in pupil size, I suddenly realized that you may have a neurological problem too. It is matter of direct inspection. So , I strongly recommend you get a MRI analysis.

    Unequal pupile, called also Anisocoria, sometimes may be "normal", or caused by external factors,but in companion with headache and palpitation, involves cranial nerves. Causes may be any lesion of the third cranial nerve that leads to dysfunction of oculomotor nerve.

    I give you an easy example, carotid dissection can be caused even by minor trauma such as turning the neck and this may leads to ischemia to eyes. Dysfunction of thyroid gland may leads to orbitopathy. I stop here, hoping that you'll follow my advice given from bottom of my heart.

    If you can manage to shut out the rest of world, please, don't hesitate to make a few sacrifices for yourself and your family, to leave the misery status

    wishing you the best of the best health

    Your snake is in pain because you might have dropped it, or it was attacked by its food. Sometimes when a snake falls from high up it can be injured in its lower extremities from the fall. If your snake got bitten it can refuse food until the bite heals. Like you said; your corn snake was injured a while back, and that it is in pain. You should really consider taking it to the vet and have them take a look at it to determiner what is wrong with it, remember that's what they do. Since you're saying that your corn snake is having difficulties swallowing, my best guess is that the snake has an infection in its mouth that is causing it not to keep down its prey. Q: Does your snake have mites? Mites can cause serious infections that can harm your snake. Q: How bad was the injury that the corn snake received? It takes time to recover from a really bad injury, especially with snakes. Before you take a life think for a second, if you were in pain, would you want someone to put you out your misery! When you buy a pet from the store or adopt from a shelter or the pound, that animal becomes a member of the family. If your pet is in pain, then you are in pain. You shouldn't kill something because you think it is the right thing to do, you must first see if your pet can be saved, if the vet says that it cannot be saved than; by all means go ahead and do the deed and end its suffering.

    I was going to say anxiety, but the loss of balance and pupil size differences seem like something else. Get an appointment with your doctor and get checked out sooner rather than later. Tell them to do full blood work again, get a CT scan, and make sure they take you seriously.

    As i was reading your symptoms, I wanst real worried until I saw that your pupils were different sizes. Now are we talking that they sometimes dialate and they both change sizes (cause thats not good) or are you saying that one changes size and the other stays the same (cause thats really bad). Pupils being in differeant size then the other is something we definatly dont like to see.

    You should look into seeing a neurological specialist to try and get to the bottom of this.

    Good luck

    If you work in an office these symptoms could be caused by long periods using a VDU or even your lighting and ventilation sytems. Do you feel better when you've been away from the office for a few days?

    It could be an inner ear problem causing you to lose your balance. Labyrinthitis or something it's called.
