23 & depressed

Posted , 2 users are following.

Had this now since October

Been on couple anti depressants

Started with severe dizziness ( passing out feeling & migraines )

Now I feel soo depressed. I also go counselling. I was getting anxious when I'm out as I worry im gonna pass out. I also have no job.

My sleeping is one min good then next bad.

I don't know weather to try another anti depressants? ATM all I take is anti sickness & pain killers from Drs for migraines.

Iv had many tests and also been digonosed with MAV. But all this has cause me to be depressed. I'm soo bloody bored too. I used to be soo active. Now my life has gone upside down. My next step is another anti depressant & vestibular therapy.

Any advice would be fantastic.

    Hey mich tbis is how I am at the moment. I feel crippled with anxity it's awful. I won't leave the house I'm convinced I'm dying its got me in a constant high state of anxity.

    I've had labrinthutus on and off a few years but it's flared up since I had aura migraine and I think it's looking like I have mav. It's hard to absorb as i just think I'm dying I feel numb and empty and nothing feels real etc. It's awful I take mirtazapine but it's doing very little and I've been giving propamonol for now while I await someone coming out to help me with my anxity. I feel your pain it's awful

    Hi guys

    Just an update

    Iv been pretty bad for 2 weeks now with dizziness & it's making me very depressed & really tired.

    I went Holland & barrat & the women told me to take b-100 so I now take 1 a day.

    I also have vestibular therapy booked in next week ( wish me luck )

    And I now have accupunture once a week and she's started to do it in my head to help the migraines & stress.

    Has anyone been through any of what Iv mentioned? And can give some good advice.

    All the best xx
