I just got a possible diagnosis of VM and/or PPPD yesterday. I wanted to write my symptoms and see if people here could resonate since I’m still not completely sure if I have VM.
-24/7 rocking sensation like on a boat
-constant trampoline/marshmallow walking
-head pressure/bowling bowl
-difficult to focus eyes
-looks as those objects in the room or the room itself is moving (like zooming in and out, tilting, or side to side)
I don’t get true migraine headaches but I do get headaches more often than usual (used to think this was due to trying to balance all the time but I guess it can also be due to VM).
One thing I’m really curious about and something that is REALLY troubling me lately is that my symptoms seem to be gradually getting worse and I don’t know if that’s a normal thing. I’m at 10 months now and for 8-9 months I’ve had pretty consistent symptoms which was rocking, head pressure, more frequent headaches and the rare occasional feeling of the ground caving underneath me). For the past month, however, I got the trampoline ground making it harder to walk-something I’ve never had before. Objects in my vision are also moving wayyy more than before and the tilting feeling is much stronger than before. Furthermore, things spin when I’m laying down to sleep which is something I have also not had before. I started VT like a few weeks ago so maybe that could make it worse. Also, im a college student so I came back to school a month ago so the stress of that and trying to figure this out could also contribute. I think I just need reassurance that I’m ok and that it’s normal to have periods where everything seems to just be getting worse. Sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy and that this worsening is due to some horrible underlying problem and that it can only get worse. Just need some guidance
