Vertigo

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all

I’ve had vertigo for almost two years now. It started about every few months I’d have a one to two minute episode and then throw up a lot from the nausea. Then I would just feel “off” for a couple of days, then be back to normal. That happened once about every three or four months for the first year. This last year, it’s been happening a lot more. I went to my doctor and he ruled out BPPV because of no nystagmus. Then I went to an ENT and he said it wasn’t BPPV either. I had a MRI and it was normal. The last month I’ve gotten woken up by vertigo three times and proceed to throw up and feel off for a few days. My head also feels sort of heavy and when I’m moving (walking or driving), it’s hard for me to focus on one thing visually things are just off.  A couple of times, for just 5-10 seconds, I’ve has the hearing in one ear sort of stop, but that’s only happened twice for very minimal time. My ENT is getting me an appointment to have a VNG so hopefully that’ll tell me more. 

Anyone have any idea what could be going on? I have a six month old baby and run a busy real estate business so I need to figure this out sad

I’m sorry to all of you who suffer from vertigo, it truly is the worst.

Thank you!

    I would suggest to find an experienced cervical chiropractor and evaluate your neck.

    This might be your issue. Good luck.

    I had meniere disease vertigo in 2017 several times which has some of your symptoms , if it's what you have then reduce your salt and drink water only when you're thirsty , I didn't throw up but I got dry heaves. I went to the ER twice until I learned what it was , now I know if it comes I must walk nonstop until it goes away up to 4 hours ,otherwise the symptoms will maximize and debilitate me.

    Jenny- you could have several things- labrinthitis, meneirs, Vestibular neuritis, Vestibular migraines.  I was diagnosed with BPPV then Vestibular nueritis for 3 months until I asked for treatment for migraines/headaches.  I now have relief and am back to myself.  The ENT should do a hearing test to rule out meniers and I think labrrinthitis has hearing loss or pain.  I forget. Do you get bad headaches? Do you have buzzing or ringing in your ears or one ear? I was hospitalized 2x and been to several doctors before I asked to try treatment for Vestibular migraines.  So push - don't take you will get better soon! I have been in Vestibular PT since June to train my brain.  It helped but I was still in a fog.  I don't knhow I worked but I did. And I barely functioned at home.  I felt so bad for my child.  This pushed me to push the doctors.  Look up these disorders and see what matches you.  I started to realize I suffered from a lot of headaches.  My brain was in a fog -now I am tracking them.  But this disorder doesn't always have a heache with it. These are debilitating disorders that steal your life and joy.
