Hello to all the dizzy people! New to the club, i'm going to tell you my story.
I noticed i had a dizzy feeling when the cold season arrives. At first it was discrete till last year, when i got really dizzy when i came home from shopping. I feel good for a few minutes when i go out into the cold, but when i go into a shop that has heating, i get dizzy after a while. Also, when it gets cold i have a sore neck, i wake up with a stiff neck and have to do some exercises to make the pain go away. The neck cracks with every move and i have a grinding sensation when i turn my head left/right.
This year, in late autumn, i had a real vertigo attack, i woke up in the night and had a dizzinness when i turned in bed or sitting. The room was spinning when i moved my head quick, i had to move really slow. After a few days the dizzinness slowly went away. I,ve learned about the dix-hallpike maneouvre and when i moved the head in a position, after a few secs, this feeling of dizzinees came and went away. With each manouvre, the feeling of vertigo diminished.
I saw many ent's, at first went to the cardio because i had also episodes of pain in the heart zone, went to oftalmo because i noticed my vision was a bit blurry. Everything was fine. Someone sent me to the neurologist and that's where i was diagnosed with vertigo due to cervical spondylosis. Did a mri of the neck wich confirmed that. I was given arlevert 2 a day and ains 7 days per month.
I noticed i got a feeling of pressure on my ears and sometimes noises in one year. Besides this i noticed i get dizzy after a high carb meal or if i make a effort with my feet like when i stop running/climbing. This is why i'm not sure wich is the right diagnostic for me. I had another episode of vertigo altough it was week 3 of taking meds.
I left out other facts, to keep the story short. Hope this helps somebody. Please excuse my grammar!
