To all who doesnt want to read full story i will list the symptoms.
Laying down and getting up, head feels like there is some kind of rush and gets dizzy. Cant really explain it. Feels like maybe blood going back into the head after standing up and get dizzy for brief monent. It feels like its the back of the head. Feel dizzy after getting up and looking up and feel rocking sensation and feel like i wanna fall backwards. I am actually doing this right now to explain how it feels cant explain it. Tends to be more tense when i look up. Feels like tension on the back of the head and fluid. Could be electric zaps and my jaw vibrates when i look up after standing up and it feels like my ear feels muffled when i do and doesnt do inmediatelt. Its few sec later when i get up. More tenseful when i close my eyes and do it. I did this about 5 times in a row now to give accurate info as possible.
Balance. Sometimes walking and doesnt feel like im walking straight but wobbly.
Sesnsitive to light. I always had this after panic attack around 12 years ago.
Super super sensitive to sound like dishes, sometimes normal voice but sometimes the same noise doesnt bother me.
Sometines feel pressure on top of my nose and forehead. Sometimes my whole head like wearing a hat.
See flashes on the side of my eyes when the light goes out.
Trying to sleep and constant rocking sensation or wobbly sensation but stops when i open my eyes. Most of it at night. Cant sleep without xanex
Cant sleep at night. When about to fall asleep either falling sensation or zap wakes me up everytime.
Top of the temple pulsinates.
Right ear pulsinates when laying down sometimes.
Use to have ear fullness but seems like its gone but sonetimes have cracking sound.
Sometimes hear a gentel ringing in the living room but disappears if i go to another room
I guess i should have started with this post as my first post on this forum instead of the other posts i have made and been reading here alot lately.
I am 37 and around mid September of this year (sudden weather change) i was playing a computer game in the morning before work (my normal routine). Then all of a sudden i got dizzy like spinning sensation and i had to drop to the floor to regain balance but it was for couple sec. i shrugged it off and tried to pla again but started to get nauseas little bit looking at the computer screen.
Few days later i went to a clinic and the doc said my ear was little red so she gave me antibiotics for 10 days and did some blood work. I adked to do chlosterol as well. Results came back and i had high chlestrol at like 270. I believe during that phase i was having balance issues? Like a drunk feeling when you are walking and you sort of tilt to the side. It wasnt all the time but i knew i wasnt 100%.
On the 10th day on my antibiotics(last day) i went to a same clinic but different location. The doc was reading over the notes of the 1st doc that i met. Original notes saids red and bulging whatt?? Whatever happen to little redness? The new doc saids ears look fine and gave me nasacort for sinus to clear whatever for the ears and also did the epiley manuever but no sign of crytals in the ear.
About 5 days later i went to a different clinic hoping for answers. He thought the same as he thought i had crytals maybe and gave me Meclizine for dizziness and referred me to an ent doc. It felt great being on meclizine, it would make me sleep for hours. Then one night i woke up middle of the night And my left arm was numb. I guess i slept on the arm to go dead. I stood up and waited for the blood to come back to my arm and when it did, i got dizzy suddenly for a sec. I was still drowsy from meclizine so i went back to bed.
1st time meeting ent doc, we did some test. Epiley manuever again and she didnt think its crystals. Did some more test and sent me to go get a hearing test. Test came out fine and said my hearing is super good. Audiologist did say my left ear canal looked shiny and my one looked dull. Met up with ent doc again to talk about the results. She said my heaing looked good except right one wasnt as good the left. Now she mentions a ct scan for possible bone interupting the ear or something. I told her that my right ear feels full or pressured and told her that i have sensitivity to sound. She said my ear looked fine and did the ct scan. Then met up with her again to talk about ct scan result. She said my ear looks super healthy but i told her that i still have fullness and some pressure and to add some cracking sound now. She said my ear looks fine though. I think this is when she said something about vestibular migraine and calcium chamnel blockers. I was like whatt!?? I didnt know what that was. I brushed it off abd i went my way and thought maybe time will heal this.
After about week and a half later, my anxiety got to me and i checked into a ER for answers. I explained the ear fullness, some pressure, cracking sound. Super sensitive to sound like, staplers, dishes banging, some peoples voice etc. cDoc is saying the ear looks little inflamed so gave me ear drops for otitis externa and wanted me to follow up with the ent doc.
I get a phone call from the ent office asking if i wanna schedule? I guess they somehow found out about the ER visit. I schedule and meet up with the ent doc few days later. Again i explain to her about the ear. She checks the ear and saids its little inflamed. I was getting fed up with back and forth answers sayings its fine, no its inflamed, no its fine. Ent doc said i have debris on my ear and used a machine to suck it out. After that i believe my sensitive to sound got worse. She again mentioned vestibular migraine. I told her i dont have a headache or migraine. She clarified that migraine doesnt mean headaches, just a general term for your head or something and wanted me to go see a neurologist. She was helpful and i explained my anxiety and prescribed me xanex.
I schedule a appointment with an neurologist. I explained everything to him and he doesnt think its mav. To make it short, he prescribed me with notriplyne and wanted me on physical therapy and take a mri. I took the mri this past wednesday and no results yet. With my sound sensitivty, the sound that mri machine makes wasnt that bad with ear plugs.
Looking back at this span of 2 month, i think i had a headache or migraine like 2 or 3 times on the right side of my head.
