Pppd vs vestibular migraine?? amitriptyline.?

Edited , 9 users are following.

how do you tell which one you would have? short story is i got cold one night. woke up next morning like i was drunk. super dizzy, lightheaded, heavy head like bobble head, hard to visually focus. but not vertigo like the room was spinning. my left ear always feels full and left side head feels weaker. my doctor said maybe 7th cranical nerve got damaged. this going on since 2016. picking at left ear or listening to mysic in left ear makes dizzy/focus isdues worst

mri, ent, ct, blood work all came back good. i have similar symptoms as ppl with vestibular migraine. i went to vestibukar therapy the first time. the lady said maybe i have pppd and reccomended a very low dose amitriptyline.

so how do i know if i have pppd or vestibular migraines? would diet changes really help? i hesrd some talk of owen judd diet. anybody here try

    Hey, read my discussion your symptoms sound just like me. For 6 months ive had this and they now think vestibular neuronitus or migrainous headaches. My question is have you ever had migraine with or without aura? As i do and they think because having those i could have migraine one. As for them tablets i was told to take if i dont get better but after researching them i would never!! They proved to cause dementia and so many negative affects id rather try lifestyle route. i am waiting for vrt therapy and got MRI today wish me luck!! Hope you get the answers you deserve.

    I have PPPD which makes me dizzy and feels wierd I was diagnosed by the Vertigo Clinic here, I take anti depressants and lorazopam to help me sleep , not a lot of help though

    I am doing some special exercises with my eyes

    affected my vision cant read a book or read the newspaper can read large print for a short while

    I am suffering anxiety and that makes it worse if I could settle down and learn to live with it I would be better off.
