Then the next morning, I bent over slowly and then everything started spinning insanely fast and I couldn't focus on anything. My breathing also became labored.
After 7 hours in the ER, I was diagnosed with Vertigo and told to go to an ENT & a Neurologist. The ENT wasn't very impressive, told me to do the Canalith Repositioning for a few days (which he did once in his office) and then I should be fine. My husband has helped me to do the Canalith Repositioning a few times, but after I get up each morning, I'm back at square one, dizzy and kind of confused.
The Neurologist ordered an MRI of my brain (probably because of my memory loss). He said that he wouldn't address the Vertigo, said that was the ENT's specialty.
I'm thinking of going to a different ENT, but all I keep doing is spending money on Doctors! My husband and I are both very worried about my memory problems along with my substituting the wrong words every now and then.
Once in a while, my breathing is still labored. I am tired most of the time and sleep at least 3 hours more each night than I have in years. I can even take naps which I could never do unless I was really sick.
My dizziness, headaches and nauseousness are better than they were the first week, but I still have such a hard time clearing my head, can't multi-task, have the memory problems and have such fatigue.
The ENT basically trusted the ER doctor's diagnosis of Vertigo, but I'm wondering if it could be something more.
It's so hard to chase my 9 year old around when I get easily confused and have a hard time staying awake
Does anyone have experience with the same symptoms and what helped them get over it or lessen the severity?
