January 2014 I started having pretty bad headaches. Got sinusitus in February 2014 and it made my headaches worse. Have had a constant headache since then. All day everyday. They aren't bad now, as in I would have to go to bed to settle them, maybe 3-5 times a month. Other than that it's just a dull achy pain and I power on with my daily routine.
November 2014 I was given medication for vertigo as I was dizzy, head spinning etc. Medication didn't work for vertigo, painkillers don't kill the headache. Vertigo would come and go until recently...
Over the past 3-4months I have been constantly dizzy, extreme fatigue all day everyday, as soon as I get up I'm tired and it never changes no matter how much sleep I get. I also get blurry eyes every so often, but that doesn't bother me much. I have noticed myself slurring words and get stuck on what I want to say. I also get tingly lips on and off every day.
My doctor referred me to a neurologist concerned about the possibility of MS and he saw me yesterday. He said about Migraine Associated Vertigo, but also said I wasn't having the typical symtoms of migraines, I get enough sleep, not stressed, etc. He gave me lamotrigine which is epilepsy medication, but apprently used to control migraines. Although I have a headache all the time, it's not bad majority of the time and I don't feel it's necessary to treat it as it's not the problem. The problem is the dizziness and extreme fatigue.
I don't know a whole lot on either MAV or MS, so I was wondering does anyone think it could be one or the other or neither? And does anyone have/has anyone had the same type of symptoms as me and got to the bottom of what the problem is? Also, I don't particularily like taking tablets... Has anyone taken lamotrigine for the same type of problem and found it had a positive affect?
