I have had dizzyness and light headedness for almost 6 months. It started in early January of 2014. At first I had a feeling that the room was spinning. Just like I was on a merry-go-round. Nausea followed and I thought it was the flu. No fever, no chills, no cold feet though. TO STOP THE NAUSEA I GOT COLA SYRUP from the pharmacy. The cola syrup mixed with a little water stopped the nausea so fast it was unbelieveable. I recommend getting some cola syrup if you have any possibility of nausea.
I have had MRI and CAT scan with contrast, saw an ENT had all of their tests, gotten therapy where they flipped me around. I have been diagnosed with Ménière's disease, but many people with whom I have spoken have known someone that had what I describe and they were told it was a virus. Nothing has arrested the feeling like I am not me. It is very hard to concentrate and I could not do my job if I had to go back to work. I should not be driving the car because I am not aware of all that is going on around me. Drugs don't help.
I have made some progress in lessening the feeling with time passing and all of the exercises I've been doing, however at about 4 1/2 months I leaned over to make my bed and the room began to spin again. I had to lay down for about 2 hours befor I could function again. Laying down does help my perticular situation and I find that the dizzyness and light headedness get worse when ever I sit up or stand up. Staying busy does not seem to make any difference, in fact the whole time that I'm busy I am stumbling around and knocking things over and making messes. It is very debilitating to live this way.
I am worried that I will suffer an attack while driving and so I don't drive unless I cannot find a ride to my doctor appointments.
Thank you for listening and I hope I can help someone with my bit of information about the COLA SYRUP. I will monitor to find more information on what I have.
