Its been ages since I've been on here and I am sorry If anyones messages have slipped by unanswered. The truth is I made a decision to stop constantly researching my problem and unsubscribed from various groups that I belonged to. Although the internet is great and is full of answers and full of fellow sufferers , it was having a negative effect on my well being.
For anyone who doesn't know me, read my posts and you'll see the journey I've been on and its been a long journey and many of you should recognise my symptoms.
Along the way I did have another ear test and the discrepancy between my ears was within the 10% accepted tolerance so I knew that was all good.
So then I looked into MAV, silent migraines.
I actually told the GP I wanted Propoponol for silent migraines and I wanted Fluoxetine to kick the anxiety into shape, which he gave me. I've been taking them now I guess for about a year or so now.
Also I got back on the proverbial horse and forced myself to do all the things I was avoiding. (That was the hardest thing to do)
I am now 99.5% back to my old self (0.5% I get the odd dizzy spell but I ignore it.
* Foggy head aches has now gone *
* Supermarket & shopping mall environments, no longer bother me *
* Standing in Queues - The odd sway, but doesn't bother me
* Driving fast on ring roads and motorways, no longer bother me or give me headaches.
* I know longer feel generally fatigued and wiped out.
I am now doing everything I was doing before and no longer give anything a second though and I no longer have 'what if' and worry constantly running through my mind.
I did go to CBT for anxiety but that didn't do nothing for me, probably because I had previously read The Chimp Paradox which explains why your brain behaves the way it does. Fight, Flight and all that stuff. I recommend it, its a good ready. It was tablets that worked for me and will power to stop avoiding stuff.
Thats me for now. All the best everyone !
