I’m Mike i’m 21 years old and live in New Jersey and had this for a year in a half now. Does these symptoms sound like MAV to you?
Rocking - like if I step it feels like the ground sinks kinda like a trampoline…- this also fluctuates could have 8 days feelin around 70 percent well and 8days in a row feeling like 30percent well, like good days and bad in a row.
Headaches- def could be very disabling like pulsating, most of mine are in the morning as i awaken but could have some random times during the day. They kind of feel better when i Actually stand up and jump up and down. 3-4 a week last hours
relief from advil for acute treatment
Visual Issues- thing kinda look like they are moving, wavy vison, floaters in the left eye mostly, if I would look up into the sky you could see all these black dots, unsteady vision things arent steady.
Tightness in neck- 24/7 when the rocking dizziness is bad the tightness is also worst and its mostly worst on the left side of the neck area.
Jaw- on the left side is kind of tight as well
Muscle twitches- helped with magnesium
depression used to have anxiety when it started
even when still and close my eye it feel as if the ground is slightly moving beneath me
minor ringing in the left ear.
motion sensitive when riding in a car also if i look out the window eyes cant really track anything worst with high speed like if im looking at a car on the opposite side of the highway the cars seem to be skipping almost like they r lagging. (any1 have this issue???)
Kind of wierd how my symptoms are worst on my left side also… any1 have this either?
History- Started when I was on vacation… drinking all week also went on a short 45 minute cruise pretty much the day after i started noticing symptoms i saw mdds but its hard to say if this is mdds or mav. this condition tends to be worst with lack of sleep also and poor diet. Tried VRT didnt help wasnt responding to it. Tried Nortriptyline and migraine diet reached about 85mg a day didnt help either. Only thing that seemed to help was magnesium 1000mg with that much magnesium there seems to be less pressure and the ground doesnt rock as much so which is why i think this might be linked to migraine but who knows. Tried neck therapy and chiropractic treatment still not cured. Before all this started I would have baddd headaches that would awaken me at night or throughout the day.
I have an appointment with Dr. Newman in NY in October and was wondering if anyone knows about him or seen him as I really need HELP here and this is destroying my youth. I find it weird how this fluctuates like good days and bad days but it just never goes away and the vision issues are always there… :?:
