3 weeks ago I was leisurely making lunch and was hit by dizziness. 5 hours later I find myself in the emergency room vomiting uncontrollably, world spinning around me! After CT and MRI scans and blood work I was admitted to the hospital. Over the course of 3 days I was given PT to try to over ear crystals back into their proper place. With no success I was sent home and told to follow up w ok th a vestibular therapist. 6 tries at therapy still with no success I was told to contact an ENT physician. Almost 3 weeks into this disabling ordeal he feels that I have laybrinthitis which I have suspected all along. I have never in my life felt anything so debilitating. One day I can feel pretty good, able to go for a walk or out to lunch (still dizzy and swaying) then the next I feel the swimming in the head feeling, totally off balance and exhausted! I was told the worst of it usually takes 3 weeks to be gone but could take several weeks to months to feel normal again. I have had vestibular rehab therapy once and was told to continue with it as this will help my brain adjust to the fog and unsteadiness. I am so frustrated over this whole thing. Will I ever be normal again??? And why do you feel decent one day and horrible the next? Also, does anyone feel like weather has any effect on it? Yesterday was sunnyand clear and I felt pretty good. Today, rain and dreary and feel horrid!
Thanks for any input!
