From 3 years old I started having "dizzy turn" where I would feel dizzy and vomit which would happen about 3 days per week. Doctors didn’t take me serious and said it was a virus, then it was my age, then anxiety and throughout my teenage years just palmed me off with beta blocker tablets without knowing what was wrong with me. I finally got diagnosed with migraine associated vertigo when I was 19. I am now 22 and still nothing has been done about it. I am on 100mg topiramate per day and stemetil. I have a “dizzy attack” around once per week but when it happens I am bed bound for about 3 days. On bad weeks it can last a whole week. When this happens, I feel so dizzy I physically cannot lift my head up so if it happens when I’m outside I have to sit on the ground with my head down and I’m unable to see whose around me. I vomit until my stomach aches, I have slurred speech and unable to say more than 2/3 words and I’m unable to walk by myself and basically need someone to carry me into my bed. It’s the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life - and because I’ve had this since I was 3 years old it’s affected my life in every way possible. I don’t even know what to do anymore, I’ve been to the doctors more times than I can imagine but all they do is change my medication and I’ve been on so so many but nothing seems to make much of a difference. Is there anyone who can relate or has any advice to help? I’ll literally try anything now:( x
