Hi. I am attempting to reach out to people for support/ answers on here due to not being able to get any answers for over the past year.
I am currently suffering with what i would describe as 24/7 drunkenness. I am constantly dizzy/ lightheaded and the easiest way to describe it is as if i am constantly under the influence of alcohol (woozy, dizzy etc).
It all happened last year July when i went out with a few mates and got considerably drunk. I remember coming home to vomiting black coffee grounds (went to ER, was find the next day so the bleeding was induced by alcohol. i do suffer with heartburn also). When i was vomiting i was in the most awkward of positions, ie; laying on my side with my head off angle touching the floor and i was vomiting in that position, i don't think i vomited so much in my entire life.
It came to the next day and i felt hungover and dizzy but put this down to alcohol. The dizziness lasted a week and carried on. I have been to the doctors numerous times and they have gave me blood tests, urine tests, etc etc with everything coming back as normal. Iv'e had tablets for anxiety/ depression which didn't do anything and im currently still on a waiting list for neurology (1 year later) and am currently seeing physio as i personally think that it is neck related due to the position i was in when vomiting. I am also due to see a ENT specialist because i seem to have a deviated septum and wet ears (whether that has anything to do with it i dont know). The more and more i think about it, the more i assume its the vomiting in the awkward position because it came on all of a sudden. I do get nausea sometimes, but not everyday. Im putting that down to irregular eating. I have not lost weight, infact i put it on due to the anxiety media cation, mirtazipine.
I haven't let it take over my life and have worked and done my daily routine as i would if this was not existent (cycling, exercises, working, driving, dog walking etcetc).
I am currently waiting for an appointment for a Doppler exam? which is some form of CT scan of the next i believe because the physio is adamant that it is something to do with my neck as i don't like extensions of the neck and so on.
Any advice or tips would be great as im due to start a new job which i am very excited about but feel that the illness/ problem will drag my attitude/ motivation down.
Thank you in advance.
