I’m very much new to all this having only recently been diagnosed but just wanted to say thanks to all who contribute to this forum as this has been a very valuable resource when trying to get my head around what’s happening to me.
Bit of background, this all started a few months ago when I got up too quickly, BOOM, incredible spell of dizziness that I’ve never felt before. Pins and needles, the feeling of everything spinning, extreme fatigue where I feel like I cant even lift my head, head pressure, tight chest, heart palpitations and very poor sleep.
Current situation seems to be constant dizziness, what I call ‘fuzziness’ and a feeling of generally being unwell. Im also incredibly easily agitated and find myself uncontrollably snapping at every little annoyance I seem to be struggling to sleep and when I do im woken by multiple cases of heavy spinning and what seems to be panic attacks off the back of that. That leads to the next few days feeling completely awful as if ive been under attack, rinse and repeat. This cycle of poor sleep undoubtedly makes things worse and is the hardest thing im trying to tackle right now.
Again, thanks to all on this forum. It helps to speak to others in a similar position which isn’t nice to see, but it definitely adds some form of comfort to be able to read and speak to people who at least understand what’s going on. I find trying to explain to someone that ‘vestibular migraine’ doesn’t just mean a headache is tough.
Take care all
