im 26 and when my symptoms started i was working out a lot. i had a lot of stress in my life, and gym life is how i delt with it. it didnt matter what time of the day or night it was, i always worked out. i ate healthy, i was mainly on a vegan diet. one night on my way to the gym at night, i got this really bad dizzy spell. like if someone dumped a heavy bucket of dizziness on me. i remember my heart beat going irregular for a couple sec and my eye vision shifted for a bit. it passed after a 3 sec or so. i still made it to the gym. however after that night, i felt this sense of imbalance for 2 weeks. i saw a doctor told me it was sinuses. however i had no sinus pressure. anyway, a week later, i felt this head rush where it feels like youve been dozed off or something. i dont know how describe it. i had a bit of a headache but i didnt have an visual disturbances like people with IIH typically describe, the double vision, black dots, floaters, peripheral vision diminishing. i had tests done by a neuro- Ophthalmologist, and she said everything is fine. i had a spinal tap done and supposedly the opening pressure was 30. however the neuro- Ophthalmologist says it could have been misread. she said with an opening pressure of 30 would have Severely caused damage to my optic nerves.
however, after that lumbar puncture, i feel this pressure in my head. like if i were to be wearing to tight helmet. i get dizzy, i get headaches, my head always feels weird ever since that lumber puncture. my eyes feel like they need to pop. i feel this liquid in my ears. i do get ringing in my ears too. my head feels like a huge bowling ball. it feels heavy, it feels tight and it also feels like something is pushing up against my skull which makes it feel like a stretching feeling. idk what to think anymore.
