While I have not been diagnosed specifically, reading all these topics I find myself connecting the dots with a lot of symptoms. A little background info, I am 18 and have been suffering with severe nausea and motion issues everyday since early January 2021; more specifically I get extremely nauseous from reading anything and extremely motion sick, especially from driving. I feel as if I am motionsick all the time with bouts of dizzyness and vertigo occasionally from moving. I had done one semester of online university, and continued to after the onset even though I failed courses for the first time in my life because of my condition. If I do not improve I will not be able to attend school again, I am unable to work more than 4 or 8 hours a week and can’t last longer than 30 minutes in a car. I have lost any motivation, all the bouncy energy I used to have playing hockey and rugby is gone. Honestly I have lost my life.
I have seen 5 GP’s, been hospitalized once and seen one neurologist; who after a few tests sent me on my way because “there is nothing wrong with me”. After 3 months of waiting next week I finally get to see a otolaryngologist.
I have only been prescribed amitriptyline while in university and after 20 days I was so groggy I stopped taking them. Severe depression and anxiety did not help, but I became more “lively” again once off of it. I have tried vestibular rehabilitation for months, acupuncture, physio, different vitamins and nothing has helped.
Two weeks ago I started to see a chiropractor, while I am hesitant to say it has helped, I have had one good good day since (never had that before). Has anyone had any relief from chiropractic care before?
I have not seen any posts talking about care from a otolaryngologist either, and that’s more the reason I made the post, seeing if anyone has had experience with a professional from this field?
Thanks to anyone who read my longer post, just trying to find ways so I can feel even somewhat normal and try to piece together how I can live with this.
