I'm curious about someting. I have been in menopaus for 5 yrs now. I am hypothyroid and I have a disorder call migraine associated vertigo (MAV) this is caused by silent migraines and migraines. It causes many sensations of dizziness, such as rocking, swaying, leaning, bobbing, swining, these sensations are felt in my head and though out my body, I also have neck and upper shoulder pain on both sides of my body which is where I think my migraines are, I have nausea, anxiety, panic that all come as part of the MAV, but I also have health anxiety and have for many years. When going thru peri I was a wreck with panic attacks daily as mony as 5 a day. Now its all back with this disorder, But I have noticed an increase in dizziness right before a hot flash,then the hot flash comes and i get sweaty and I'm having drenching night sweats. I wonder if any of you have dizziness before the hot flash, like it telling you the flash is coming but sometimes I don't think of that until the flash comes. I have dizziness 98% of the time every day in some form, wether it be swaying, leaning, bobbing. I also feel the floor move when I walk, it goes up and down like walking on marsh mellows. This disorder is very scary to me, the dizziness scares me to death at times.
Other times before a flash lately I'm feeling this discomfort in my chest, like its got soemthing in it, then a min later the flash. I'm going to see my doc wednesday about it. I'm always worried about my heart, always have been. I've testing before and its alway anxiety, but i ust want to make sure. I know it sounds stupid to people, but this is how it is for me. I'm scared alot.
