At the end of November, I woke up early in the morning to go to the bathroom. I sat up and it felt as though someone put me in a hamster ball and kicked me down a hill. It eventually subsided and got to the ER. I was definitely woozy all day but the doc's nixed BPPV and I took an audiology test so they said we could rule out any tumor, but somehow we arrived labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis. They sent me on my way and said that I should feel better in a week or two and could potentially go to a wedding in a few days... That boggled my mind, especially when the vertigo came back around the same time each of the next 2-3 days.
Over the past 5 months, I've had good days and bad. A neurologist likened this to someone fixing the hardware and software on a computer at the same time. He said my hardware has been corrected but now my software is trying to catch up. I have no idea if it's correct or not, but I have tried to be patient. It has helped knowing that other people have dealt with the same wooziness/moonwalking/out of body feelings. I've struggled to focus and having dealt with concussions, I feel like I'm constantly recovering from one. It hasn't kept me from working but I continue to worry I was misdiagnosed and that there is something more serious going on. What has me more worried is that in the last 2-3 weeks, headaches have started. They're rarely in the same spot/feel like they're actually always in a different part of my brain, but the temple pain and pressure does not help the anxiety.
Has anyone else recovered from this and ran into these headaches as part of the healing process? Many thanks!
