This is my first time posting here and was just wondering if anyone could help me. I’ve had dizziness and occasional positional vertigo for the last two years. It all started in March of 2005 when i woke up in the middle of the night with vertigo while rolling over in bed. I had positional vertigo for 4-7 weeks with sensitivity to sound and light, general dizziness, which eventually got better. After a few months of feeling almost myself I started getting new symptoms. Feeling of being on a boat, constant unsteadiness, feeling of rocking when I’m sitting still, still had sensitivity to light and sound. Didn’t have another attack of positional vertigo March 2006 when my boyfriend flipped a u-turn and set it off. My vertigo has always been positional. I’ve been to several doctors and one diagnosed me with labyrinthitis which I know I don’t have…can’t have it for 2 years straight. Lately I’ve been putting two and two together and think I may have MAV. I’ve been getting headaches the last 6 months sometimes severe. Always more dizzy with headachs and light sensitivity and sound sensitivity always present with headaches. Also present with headaches is motion intolerance and blurry vision in one eye. Thinking back I’ve always had problems with carnival rides, car rides, but more recently I can’t even turn my head quickly without feeling dizzy. If I have a headache I have to turn my head really slow because I feel like I’ll lose my balance. I’ve also been thinking back to when I was younger and remember a time in 8th grade when I went to the doctor for headache/dizziness…had neurological tests (normal) and had MRI (no lesions or tumors). Could I have had migraines back then? The one thing that I keep going back to is the constant dizziness and light and sound sensitivity (2 important symptoms of MAV). I also am more dizzy around my period. I also heard that could be related to MAV. I’ve been researching my dizziness for 2 years and just came across this website and I feel out of everything I’ve researched MAV seems like a perfect fit. It seems like the one that makes most sense. I don’t think it’s Meniere’s because I don’t have hearing loss but I do have tinnitus. I made an appointment with my doctor for Monday but I’m afraid that she will just dismiss my concerns. It doesn’t seem like people have very good luck getting a MAV diagnosis since a lot of doctors don’t believe it exists. I just want to get some of the medication that is recommended and try it to see if it helps. I’d given up on finding what is wrong with me until I started researching MAV. It’s definately a breath of fresh air and I feel like it is exactly what is ailing me the last 2 years. Does this sound like MAV? Any advice would be appreciated.
