Hi everyone, I’ve recently been diagnosed with migranous vertigo and honestly i’m not having the best time right now… hoping to hear some success stories because i’m struggling to cope at the moment.
I have been dizzy 24/7 since early February, I don’t really know what set it off, possible coming off birth control or a negative reaction to some antibiotics, or something else entirely. Regardless, it’s been a nightmare!
I had my ears checked at the doctors in late February and they said everything was fine, I was probably suffering the after effects of a cold or something, and to give it a couple of weeks, which I did, but by this point lockdown had begun so I was not allowed anymore physical appointments with my doctor.
Since then I have been in contact with my doctor every 2 weeks and tried a variety of different medications, the current one I’m on is venlafaxine. Has anyone had success with this? I was supposed to start at 75mg/day but just taking one 37.5mg tablet hit me like a ton of bricks, so i went down to 37.5mg (half a tablet twice a day) which was much more manageable but didn’t really have an effect.
Now I take half a tablet in the morning, and a full 37.5mg tablet in the evening. Suffering mostly from insomnia, have been doing this for four days now and still super dizzy. does it get better? Does it actually work?
This is really getting me down…I can’t stop crying. I feel so frustrated too! I can’t train or exercise anymore and that was basically my life.
Please help if you can!
