In June 2022, I was diagnosed with Vertigo. Before seeing the doctor and getting the diagnosis, I started feeling like the room is slowly spinning at times and ongoing sensation as if I'm being pulled sidewards or backwards. Fast-forward to July, new symptoms have developed and have been ongoing on a daily basis (scary part!).
- Fatigue/Tiredness: I wake up everyday with extreme fatigue regardless of a full 7-9 hours of sleep. I've started taking 15-20!minutes naps within 1-2 hours of waking up and throughout the day if possible to feel somewhat recharged and go on with the day. Very low energy!
- Vision: I feel strange looking at bright lights, and the sun. I cant explain it, except I'm more comfortable seeing at night-time now. Unclear vision, almost like a fog where my eyes quickly looses focus throughout the day. Objects closer to me appear very blurry.
- Mental State: I feel as if I'm consistently under the influence even though I am not smoking or drinking. It is comparable to the feeling I'd get after 1-2 glasses of wine. I am not myself and I'm moving slower. My mind is not as sharp and I have a hard time keeping focus on conversations or meetings at work. Getting through a full work-day has been challenging.
The beginning of the day is the worst, I slightly feel some reprieve with these symptoms into the evening. My doctors cant diagnose what is happening to me. I have upcoming appointments for a sleep study and an eye doctors. Has anyone felt like this before? What's wrong with me?!
