Hello, my name is Alvis, im 20 years old.
I wanted to share my story with you and maybe get some help. Right now im lightheaded, dizzy, anxious for one one week. I think it maybe had something to do with my fall, but im not sure. I was drunk that night, was walking and lost balance, falled on right side of head, no vomiting, no memory loss. Just the next day i felt like crap, not only hangover, but my head was hurting soo bad on the left side. It was in July btw.. Then after that i felt weirder, had episodes of lightheadness and i knew something was not right, i never had these things before. Then about 8 days ago it all started, i was working and just felt like i have weekness in body and lightheadness, i felt terrible, my ears kinda "closed" for some 15 seconds, horrible feeling. That they i went home and sleeped all that day and from that day i feel like crap, my left side of head feels like pressure in there and behing eye. I was sleping for 2 days and felt worse and worse. It was so bad i couldnt walk out off bed few steps, that was last drop, my mom called parademics, I was taken to hospital, they did blood test, ct scan to my head, I had to wait like 6 hours until they told me results, and there was moment when i was sitting and felt worse condition in life, i was about to pass out, they then put me in bed, and i felt better within hour... After waiting for 6 hours they told me everything is okey, ct scan good, blood test good. Then some ear doctor came to see me, she said it could be bppv, so they sent me home with some medications. I had to take Medrol for 6 days, the first day of it was just hoorible, my heart was pounding, couldnt sleep, i felt worse then before. So i consulted my family doctor and she told to stop taking them, so i took them for 3 days after that i felt terrible side effects, my headache was soi bad, the worst ever, i felt my whole body was weak. Noone told what I have, i dont think its BPPV maybe im wrong. I kept reading online about my symptoms and possible things that i could have, i was just getting more and more anxious, scared, just feelt soo bad. I gotta say, before that i did 3 xrays to head, neck, all good, and i did ultrasonography to head, all good.
On 21 october i went to neurologist, she told me that everything seems okey, that i need to relax and only think possitive, she asked me questions what I wanna do in future and things like that, that helped with my anxiety, but not with my dizziness, vertigo. Right now Im waiting for 29 october, i got visit otolaryngologist, for consultation and audiogramm. It seems so far away, and i can just guess whats wrong with me... Right now symptoms are: vertigo, dizziness, when i move my head side to side its much worse and start to feel pressure in head, if i hold my head straight, almost no dizziness, im sensitive to light, i cant sit long time to computer or smartphone, max 1 hour, if i sit longer i get weird feeling and dizziness, i hate going to sleep now, when i lay in bed i feel like falling, everything is spinning, if i lay on any side it gets even worse, like my head is spinning, but others thing stay in possition, pluss if i lay on sides i get more head pressure. What helps me walking and making myself something to eat is medical haed holder, its used for neck injuries, but it helps me!! Well the dizziness is less with it and im taking betahistine 24mg 3 times a day and it makes dizziness less. And i got some pain arround hearth, but that could be from anxiety and all time that i sleep on my back. I just wanna get back to normal life, its soo hard with dizziness, cant do basic things, im listening to motivational speechess and videos that is what helps me everyday. I was thinking maybe its like message from higher powers, that i need to change, because i really need to had some bad habits, drinking, smoking and things like that. Right now im making something like diary, i write down how i feel everyday and i wrote things that i need to accomplish, when i will feel good I will start doing them one by one!
But right now i just wanna faster get healthy again. I was wondering are there people like me who struggles with all these problems like I do? I read some posts on forum and there are people with similar symptons that i have. Maybe someone had this thing like me and is healthy right now and could give me some advice what to do and where to go?!
I will be waiting for replays , and keep posting how things are going.
Have a good day!
