I hope you all don't mind me sharing my long story here. I'm just needing some support and it would be even nicer if some one has insights for me.
my story is: I've suffered with vertigo on and off for years. I'm 41.
my first few attacks were in early adolescence. Where I would get vertigo attacks for 12-24 hours and vomit. But then it was over. My mom said it was a migraine.It completely went away until after I had my first child 10 years ago. It started on and off but then escalated to pretty much 24/7. After a particularly bad attack I went to the ent who said it was vestibular neuritis and sent me on my way with all the Medes. It never went away. Eventually. After almost 2 years I saw a neurologist who gave me the BPPV diagnosis. After a few epleys it was better and soon I fell pregnant with my 2nd child and it completely went away for over 3 years.
In 2013 it came back with a vengeance and I've been battling it on and off since then. Last year was a good year and I was fine for most of it. However, my husband had a nervous breakdown and after being so strong for most of it I crashed in November last year. I've been seeing an audiologist who's been doing epleys and semonts but I feel better for a few hours and then back again. She says its cupulolithisos and bilateral.
I'm exhausted from this all and hardly getting any rest since when I lie back its there, and turn left or right.
I've been wondering if anyone has sensory processing disorder and struggles with vertigo. Ive pretty much always had issues with odors, crowds, noise etc and since my husbands depression I've been completely overloaded and now wondering if there's a link? I'm so depressed with all this and just want my life back with no vertigo.
I'd appreciate all and any advice.
