Hi! I’m new here. I’ve been reading posts on this site for over a month now and decided to join in on the “fun”
This all started for me back in September of 2018. I noticed I was dizzy in a “drunk” kind of way. It wasn’t too bad at the time but I was also having a lot of daily headaches with random migraines. Things got progressively worse pretty quick. I felt way more functional over the summer but I’ve also struggled with some vitamin deficiencies over the last year too. My doctor is thinking that’s due to taking acid reflux medication and I’m working on getting my deficiencies back up again.
Finally was able to see a neurologist in September and were working on finding a right medication for the “chronic migraines with Migrainous dizziness” that he diagnosed me with. I started with propranolol and now I’m trying nortriptyline.
My symptoms are 24/7 dizziness, feeling “drunk”, tinnitus in both ears, light and sounds sensitivity, weird tingling feeling in my scalp, random zaps in my head, neck pain, right side of my face feels numb sometimes, pins and needles in my legs and hands (this symptom comes and goes), headaches and migraines, the migraines always start on the back right side of my head and I feel like my right leg feels heavy and the right side of my body feels different than my left (I have a hard time describing this one) and a whole lot of anxiety that I’ve developed over the last year. I’m sure there’s more symptoms that I’m forgetting about because things seem random and wax and wane. I also have GERD which has been bad.
Not going to lie, I’m really struggling right now. I’m hoping being able to talk to other people who feel the same way I do will help me feel a bit less alone in all of this.
