Up until January I was a fit healthy 40 year old woman ( ran a marathon in October) until one night I rolled over in my sleep and immediately woke in a panic with the room spinning!!!spent the next 9 days in bed with severe vertigo! (Couldn't even lift my head up to eat or drink without the room spinning and being sick). It took around 3 weeks and medication for the light headed and dizziness to go but ever since I have had bad pain deep in my right ear which runs across to my right eye and is a aching throbbing sensation. This pain never goes away but also on and off during the day I have headaches in various pain levels and also blurred vision in my right eye. I have been to doctor a few times and been sent to stroke clinic ( who rules out a stroke) had an MRI scan and been put on anti depressant type tablets to treat what the doctor thinks is neuralgia, however the medication only eased the intensity of the pain and also kept me awake with palpitations. Last couple of weeks iv also started to experience ringing and various whooshing noises in my right ear too. Can anyone help as the doctor doesn't seem to think its too much of a problem wen though its affecting my whole life! I'm a single mum who works full time and am supposed to be training for another marathon but my life has just been on hold since January.
