For years nowprobably 6 or 7, I have struggled with a off kilter feeling....like I am listing to the left usually. occasionallyi would have a brief episode of feeling like the room was spinning. i had finally chalked it up to anxiety and hormone combo. worked on dealing with my anxiety and it kinda went away for about a year....or atleast wasnt everyday all day like it had been. then poof. one morning i woke up to the room spinning and ended up calling the ambulance. ER said vitals were good. sent me to physical therapy .pt could find nothing with their tests but suggested vestibular migraines perhaps...i have a history of occular migraines, but never a headache type migraine.....anyway....the vertigo spinning lasted about 2 weeks then faded and i am now waiting to see neurologist and have a MRI. I HAD a CAT scan that came back.good and my pt doesnt believe there is anything really sinister going on but wants it ruled out
. the dizzy is probably tied for my worst symptom. it always makes me anxious. any of you other ladies have experience like this with the vertigo type dizziness or the off kilter feeling? the off kilter feeling seems random, but the vertigo type spinning seems to start a bit before my period starts. i am 47, and have been in peri for about 6 or 7 years I think...possibly as much as 10. i know have shooting in between periods after ovulation and gas and bloating that seems not humanly possible. anxiety, fatigue, flushed face and sweating....those these seem like they are getting better. muscle aches, joint pain and stiffnes. dry, burning vag especially right after period gets over. frequent urination. also flooding.....sounds like I am peeing as the blood rushes out. have to wear overnight pads and an adult diaper and dont dare leave house for 2 days out of the month. big clots too....sometimes the size of my hand. thats been going on for about two and a half years. i ended up in emergwncy room about 4 months ago because i lost so much blood and tissue so fast i started seeing these yellow lights and almost passed out.
found out my uterus is the size of a five month preganancy due to fibroids and I am considering a hysterectomy, but am also afraid to do that because i cant go on hormones because I had breast cancer last year, and what if having a hysterectomy makes everything worse? i have learned to cope now with what I know most the time....bit if it got worse...i am not sure what i would do. ....oppps. i meant yo just ask about the dizziness, but i guess i needed to "talk". lol. i still manage to run my business....i own a pretty large used bookstore that I love and I play with my precious lil two year old grandson just about everyday. my life is full of joy and happiness. i just wish i felt better, or could really understand what is happening to me. how can we when are docs seem so uninformed and nonchalant about it. ugh.
