I’m not extremely active here, but when you get an attack that lasts three weeks and won’t go away, I can use all the support possible. I wrote my story a few years ago, been reading a lot of posts lately. I’ve had vertigo since I was a child, and headaches and vertigo, as an adult. Diagnosed with MAV… my story is somewhere on these boards, not sure how to look it up.
Anyhow typically my attacks last a few weeks, and then I slowly get better to the point where a headache is one or two days and I sleep it off and move on. Just recently had an MRI done again and doc had the nurse call and say I didn’t have any abnormalities. I still can’t see my doc until a week from today.
But the good news is my doc called in two prescriptions. The prednisone I just started, and tompamax I am familiar with but never took more than a few days. (I remember giving up on it but couldn’t remember why) Was wondering what to expect and if anyone has been thrilled with the results. Also, I realize the steroid is for just six days and the other will act as a starter and gradually increase as time goes by possibly. To be honest, I don’t want to take it yet until the steroids are finished, I’m a little nervous taking a lot of unfamiliar drugs. Any input I’d love to hear your experience, thanks.
