Hello everyone, just thought I would update on my latest journey. After visiting my neurologist on Monday to discuss seizure episode, he said he was not convinced it was a seizure as it did not lose control of bowels or bit my tongue. So is weaning me off anti-seizure meds. He believes I am dealing with bilateral BPPV and multiple muscle spasms in my head and neck due to the migraines and because I have not treated it correctly in the beginning and let it go on for so long it has become chronic. It is just coincidental the two happened together. My luck. The drugs I am now on are an anti-inflammatory, Meloxicam, 15 mg, 1 tab for 10 days then prn, Nortriptyline (for headache), 10 mg
1 capsule at bedtime for 1 week
2 capsules at bedtime for 2 months
and Lorazepam (dizzyness), 1 mg, 1 tab under tongue at bedtime, prn.
But I must say, the dizzyness I am feeling today and yesterday and tightness in chest is very concerning. Almost feels like a different dizzyness than BPPV. I just hope they are not missing an underlying heart condition. Im almost afraid to approach another doctor as each one appears on their own ego trip and has their idea of what is going on. I have never heard of so many differing opinions. One good thing, and I'm almost afraid to say it too loud, is my nausea is not as bad and appetite is somewhat back and I can eat better. Any similar treatment plans out there?
