So typically I typically don’t write these things but I want to figure out if I should seek out a mav specialist. I read the Survival guide and honestly feel perhaps what I have been going through fits but while somethings fall pretty in line others seem kind of off so I was wondering if people who have this, feel like this fits the criteria, as I was looking into finding a doctor in my area deals with MAV.
First off, my mom suffered from horrible migraines. If she had a migraine she could not do anything but stay in bed. She had a bad head ache, light and sound was really horrible for her. She had them a lot through her life. I have never had a migraine that strong or even know 100% for sure that I have had a migraine.
So on to me, over the past three years (give or take) I have had on and off vertigo, lasting a few months and its on and off. I have it for a couple of months its gone for a couple of months etc. Inbetween these things, I -have- had auras, or at least I think they are auras they appear typically in my right eye and kind of a wave in the corner of my eye last about 30 mins to a hour. I don’t always have head aches after them however. The last time I had one I did have a pretty bad headache but still managed to play a game during it despite being in pain lasted 2 maybe 3 hours even after Ibprof.
Now with my Dizziness I don’t typically have spinning or a headache, more often i feel unbalance or not right, it feels like going into stores really sucks for some reasons, I do have photosensitivity a lot of the time so i have a tendency to wear glasses outside, but perhaps that is cuz my house is typically darker. Being in a airplane when it slows down, goes up or down to fast really sucks, I was watching deadpool last week the credits where screwing with me, and got mild bouts through out the movie. Sometimes turning my head a certain way will trigger it.Watching certain movements in a game or movie will make me feel weird. For instance i was watching a cockpit view of a airplane and when they turned it made me feel pretty dizzy. I have had pressure that has come along with this sensation sometimes. Typically I feel light headed, but the above things just make it a lot worse. Though sometimes I will go through half a day with out feeling to bad and it will seem a bit worse at night.
I don’t typically have ear issues, I don’t think i have lost hearing really. I do occasionally get a ringing in my ears, doesnt last very long typically though. Only strange thing that happens is occasional my right ear will feel a bit funny and its like i can hear my breathing in that ear.
Its weird cuz these happen for a few months and just leave and i feel 100% fine than they come back. A few other medical things i have wrong with me are.
Heart Arrhythmia’s (Doesnt seem to be skipping when i feel that way though)
Anxiety/Panic/Hypochondria (My mom died of lung cancer due to being a smoker a few years ago so I have a fear of cancer)
I am allergic to like everything that is a plant practically
Oh I am a 32 year old male.
I do get neck aches, (though i had whiplash when I was a kid) that are pretty bad at times and ill try and stretch it out or pop my neck and than i get a head ache. I dunno any thoughts? Have I even had a migraine of any kind? I just don’t know what to think at this point.
