So after months of tests, scans and seeing various specialists apparently I have vestibular migraines!
I have been suffering for years with headaches and last September 4 months after my son was born out of no-where I was extremely dizzy and this has been the case ever since, I get horrendous headaches and dizzy spells when I just can't walk I either have to crawl on my hands or knees or just sit still!
I have seen ent, neuro, chiro, physio, accupuncture, tried sertraline, propanranol, amtrip, echo on my heart, worn a 24hr holter, had bloods upon bloods, and nothing at first they thought it was vestibular neuritis but now they think it's vestibular migraines which it could well be, they want me to start Topamax next week to see if that helps and tbh I will try anything right now I am that close to chopping my own head off! I think I could cope with the headache I just hate the dizziness as its constant never goes! Headaches are there all the time, I also have tmj which I am waiting to have botox on to try and release some tension in my head and jaw.
Doctors keep playing the anxiety card and yes my symptoms are causing me massive health anxiety but I don't think it's anxiety causing my headaches and dizziness! It's such a debilitating condition I feel helpless at the mo which is a nightmare as I'm a mum of 2 and working which is a daily struggle x
