How does this just hit when your feeling good

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been feeling good today. I left work I stopped and got Burger King eight that on the way home got home open my laptop to do my husbands recordkeeping and while sitting here working all of a sudden I felt like I was moving all over the place and it was extreme, but like I was shaking inside, having anxiety, now I feel like I'm bothering up and down. I'm just wondering if it was the food that I ate. How can food to eat an hour before cause this to happen this fast? I truly do not understand how migraine associated vertigo Cannon cause all this especially when you're feeling fine. If anyone has answers please share them. Thank you

    It always jumps me when I feel fine. I call it the monster. Think it knows when I feel good and that's how it finds me. Lol. Could be the sodium in fast food. Tilt your head a certain way. Had a car bump the back of my car at a red light once set it off . Nothing serious but that's all it took

      This entire disorder is absolutely out if control. One minute fine and the next feel like your moving all over, bobbing up and down, anxiety from no where. It's crazy and makes no sense.

      Do you have MAV? Are you on any meds? I haven't tried any other meds, I'm scared of them, I'm suppose to start nortriptyline tonight, my ENT said I could cut the 25 mg tabs into quarters so I get a very low dose, but I'm afraid to, the only thing o take is Xanax when it gets bad

      I been taking diazepam for the vertigo spells and dizziness for years. This last episode it isn't working. I get migraines after the vertigo sets in. Just had VNG done Wednesday. Hearing test and all test results on the 21st. Was told bppv years ago but symptoms don't seem to fit anymore. The diazepam is only a 2mg pill. Real low dose. Meclizine did nothing at all. Steroids didn't work either. Did low dose for a week. Did a 8 day high dose taper to. Nothing. Can't get to work even. Can't even go out and mow the lawn. Lol. Playing the waiting game see what they say now.

      I hope you can get some help. I'm working full time, tho I think some weeks it makes it bad because of the stress.

      Do you notice the least amount of stress you have episodes?

      The episodes cause alot of stress. I have to work and can't. These days you will be replaced in a heartbeat for not showing up for work. As far as stress causing it? Who knows. Was very stressed before it happened. Beginning of June had prostate surgery. Hospital for 2 days. Less than a week later right back in for a infection. Then found out they gave me MRSA. Spent a week in hospital on IV antibiotics. Then sent home with more antibiotics. Was supposed to be off work 2 weeks. Was over a month. Hospital trying to charge me now for the stay. Over 15 grand. Get back to work everything is broke and dirty. Spent weeks cleaning and fixing stuff. 100 degree days killed me. Dehydrated bad. Then this hit. So the odds was against me from the start. Lol.

      Your story hurts to hear. Things happen, the world isn't accepting of "weakness" or illness. Cancer and then MRSA, that's so beyond your control! And then throw the dizziness on top. I can't even imagine. Who's to say how the stress plays in. It all feeds each other. Stress can exacerbate dizziness and dizziness can cause stress. And the work world wants to know specifically how long you'll be unable to work.  (I had surgery myself a year ago and am in the process of scheduling a repeat now) and it just isn't always that neat and tidy. My heart hurts for you.

      No cancer thank God. Just a resection. Was TURP surgery. Was less evasive . Less risk of infection. Tho that wasn't the case. Something or someone was not clean. Plus had a lazy night nurse not doing her job. She even admitted it to the head of nursing staff. But I paid the price.

    Could be a food intolerance. I am having episodes too. Try to eat different for a while and see if you get better.

      I find it weird how you can eat something and an hour later you feeling like your bouncing all over the place. I was working on putting things in the computer and wonder if my looking up and down constantly is what set it off.

    I had this happen to me once when I was eating junk food. Some foods have a lot of additives, and sodium. When I stopped junk food, that feeling has never come back. Processed food passes faster than real food. I get allergic reactions almost within a half hour of eating something my body can't tolerate. Our bodies are quiet delicate and when it senses something is bad in our system it usually reacts fast.
