I was diagnosed with a “migraine variant” in 2012. No migraine pain but severe vertigo/dizziness after visual stimulation/exersise. I had some tests, MRI normal. I had a 50% canal paresis to the right side whatever that means or proves.
Tried the diet, didnt make much difference, tried the merry go round of anti depressants, anti convulsants, beta blockers… I last about a month to 6 weeks on all of them and cannot function or see any sign of improvement whatsoever so discontinue which i know is wrong, i know they can take months to work but i have a job and child. They make things 100 times worse and i panick and want to get back to baseline ASAP (dizziness still there but able to live a somewhat normal if uncomfortable at times life) so i taper and stop.
The thing is, every time i stop the meds i end up worse than the baseline i was before taking them and I dont get back to that baseline for weeks and weeks. Its like my brain is mega angry for taking this stuff.
So I tried the vitamin route. COQ10, B and Mag also Feverfew. (not all at the same time) They did the same. They made my symptoms worse…VITAMINS and MINERALS made me worse ! so again i stopped although i got back to baseline quicker.
Im at my wits end now. I have a follow up with Dr next week to see how im getting on with Pitz which was truely awfull for me. I imagine hes going to ell me he cant do anything else for me.
Sorry i need to vent and this is the only place i can do it. Thanks for listening to my story.
