I'm new here. I'm having an awful time. I can give some history. I am hypothyriod, in my 3rd yr of menopaus, have general anxiety disorder. I When my thyroid messed up I had many months of dizziness then it cleared for a few years, then in 2010 it came back so I had all the testing done and all was normal,, except the BPPV dx. So I had the eply and it helped but didn't fix it completely. I was having bad neck pain with headaches so I went to a neruologist and he did trigger point injections and wow it all left. About 2 months ago I was doing some exercises and bam the vertigo hit so hard I didn't know what to do. I started all my brandt daroff exercses but not helping, so went GP who said BpPV is back so off the vestibular therapy. They put me back on the brandt daroff exercise for a week and thats where I'm at. My questions are does anyone have vertifo like this, I feel as if i'm moving especially after walking,standing, taking a shower, I can sit down and my head feels like it rocking or swaying, like on a boat that is bouncing. Does this sound like vertigo? I know when I'm sitting and keeping my head in certain positions esp at work, I will feel like a zap maybe like I've flipped or spun and then my anxiety hits and I loose control, then the rocking swaying feeling can last for hours or days. Does this sound normal in the sceme of things, considering vertigo? I get freaked out driving. I worry all the time, all the what if's, what if this disables me, what if I can't drive again, what if I have some disease, it never quits.
Does the thyriod have anything to do with vertigo? I have hotflashes al the time and dizziness with those. I'm afraid to do anything now. I don't know if the anxiety is just making it worse, or if it causing me to not be able get past it.
I am trying to get back into the neuro's office to see if he can help. I don't know what to do, I guess i need to know if this is typical vertigo symptoms or if I'm just making myself nuts.
If anyone can help I would greatly appreicate it.
