Desperate, Afraid and Hopeless!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have posted before. Last April i starte having chronic vertigo and dizziness. I starte taking Mexlizine, which helped a little but not enough. 

I stopped taking a beta blocker and that seemed to help. By August, I was able to getnput of bed and for a few motnths, I was able to function a little. 

I startd getting worse again in February and now I am bedridden again. 

I have not been able to get an MRI because I cannot lie flat. We don’t have any stand up MRI locations close enough. I am foing out of my mind!  I cannot endure this anymore!  I cannot get testing. I could have MS or a brain tumor!  I live in a constant state of amxiety and  I feel horrible all the time. I can’t live out the test of my existence like this!  I also have VERY nad allergies and I won’t take anything for fear that the dizziness will be worse but at the same time, all the sinis pressure could be exacerbating the problem. 

I also have a serious shoulder imjury whoch needs attention and I can’t tend ro that either. That happened in March and I may never regain full usenof my dominant arm if i cannot get an MRI for that and follow up with the necessary treatment. 

I’ve had medical issues my entire life and this is just too much to handle!

    Have you tried a round of antibiotics. Ive gone thru the same thing on and off for 7 years. One doctor decided to treat me for a sinus infection 2 years ago. It cleared up in 24 hours. This year it came back and i went and got antibiotcs for a sinus infection it cleard up right away. It saved my life

    I definitely have extreme allergies but I don’t know if i actually have a sinus infection.  I could check into that.
