2 months of suffering with constant dizziness and headaches! Please help!

Posted , 8 users are following.

So one day 2 months ago all of a sudden had a very weird what felt like a wave of sickness, dizziness headache, sweats, I literally felt like I was gonna pass out come over me when I was at work. It was like a switch was turned on or off and I had to go outside to get some air. I got really panicky cos ive never had that happen before. It was horrendous. Ever since then I've had a wide range of horrible symptoms that are seriously effecting my life. A constant dizziness. I literally feel I'm drunk 24/7. Really bad headaches that can be either be behind my eyes, the side of my head or the back of my head. I have zero energy all the time. It's a struggle to keep my head up, I just wanna lie down all the time. I feel weak and sick constantly, some days I can't eat. My eyes feel heavy and I'm just not with it. Over the last 2 months I've just been getting worse which is making me really anxious and panicky. I wouldn't wish this on anyone! I've had to cancel social events, all my exercise classes and I don't wanna do anything cos I feel so awful all the time.

So far had many docs appointments, 2 lots of tablets that have made me feel worse. Currently trying accupuncture which isn't doing anything. Been referred to ent which isn't till the end of the month. My life has been put on hold and I fear I'll never get better. As the weeks go on I feel myself falling into a deeper darker hole of dizziness hell! Any help/advice would be much appriciated.

    You are definitely not alone. I experienced the same thing. Started last year November 7th,2017. I will never forget that day as long as I live. Except mine has come with a host of symptoms. It started with fatigue and extreme dizziness/vertigo. I was bedridden for 2 months because the dizziness was extremely bad. It was constant. I could barely walk a couple steps before feeling like passing out and having trouble breathing. I had to quit my job and held back in my college classes because I could not complete them. After 2 months it subsided but then came along other symptoms. Severe muscle pain and joint pain all over. Upper middle back/neck/knees/ toes/ my hands/ elbows.. everything! Then came the GI issues. Abdominal pain and Diarrhea. Bouts of lightheadedness ans feeling faint. And recently my vertigo(dizziness) came back for 3 weeks, now is subsiding. I feel like I am dying!!! Literally!! And you feel so helpless without a diagnosis or cure. 😔😔 Ive never felt so sick in my life. 2 more months will make it a whole year. Woww, hard to believe.

      Amanda, I completely relate to your experience. My experience started in June and has continued. I have returned to work but can only manage three days. I am concerned I won't return to my full capacity and will have to stop my employement. My ear roars after three days at work and the dizziness is embarrassing. I feel exhausted and nauseated. I wish specialists had more answers but it seems they don't.I wonder if this is partly to do with my age  42  years

      Feeling your pain with this difficult health issue
