Ive been an off and onn-er for a while on here, I had a bit of a dip in my first trimester but it seemed to go away again, food again the trigger.
So I am back - I am now 2 weeks in to what I thought was flu, but now is probably more likley to be a relapse. I have been in bed, floored, and fluey in symptoms but now these have lifted I just have my worst symptom…derealisation. I am still on 1mg Pizotifen and this generally had worked. Running up to flu I was probably working too hard and I was getting very stressed and dysregulated due to the pandemic and other things which now seem totally pointless…
I was wondering, is it normal for a MAV to flare after an illness? I know my immune system is compromised as it is but I am feeling so sad that I feel I cant connect with my baby cause I am stuck in this alternate world. All I can do is cry, not been able to work for 3 weeks now and was telling myself it was a protracted flu, it is so much on one side of my head, the pressure, derealisation, etc. Has anyone had this which this has passed? I feel trapped and very sad. I know it is the nature of MAV that this can happen but it has been my fear of all fears, but thought it might be ok till she was born…help!
