Hi everyone. Just looking for some simliar experiences\guidances so please read carefully of my following story. I am so close to giving up.
I am a young 25 year old male who used to be healthy and active untill my debilitating Vertigo\Brain Zaps and Constant painful headaches begun…
It begun about 3 months ago where i started to notice to get brain zaps\shakes\vibrations and dizzyness along with constant daily headaches from the moment i woke up. Thing is though when i was sitting down @ home or on the couch the dizzyness\vertigo and headaches were barely noticable. It was pretty livable. The only time it affected me was when i sat in the car and had to drive, the zaps would start, the headaches the vertigo the nausea would make it so uncomfortable to drive. I hated it so much went to the doctors for it. Long story short MRI\CT and all sorts of tests were done for the Middle ear, Brain, Heart and Chest and no issues or underlying issues were found.
Doctors then said it just could be related to the anxiety that i was having previously which i find hard to believe because ive been dealing with anxiety for a long time and have never had issues like this. Anyway fast forward 1month or 2 and i slowly just started to move on with life and ignore it and before i even knew it it had faded away. I remember one day sititng in the car and thinking great time to experience some vertigo and brain shakes… when it didnt happen at all… i was amazed! i noticed the symptoms i usually had had moved from driving to happeneing when i was sleeping, which was fine…cause I was laying down anyway My god that was amazing it just faded on its own, the headaches reduced to about 1 every second day and only lasted an hour or so. I was able to work again, i felt like my life had gone back to normal, felt SO f&&&ing awesome!! Was in the bestest mood ever! The dizzyness was still there but extremely mild and havent experienced a brain zap\shakey weird feeling in weeks!
I also visited an ENT which said it could be vestibular migraine and gave me Sandomigran Pizofiten to try but I never did in fear it would mess up my anxiety and also the fact that it had gone away by then on its own…
Then 1 week and half ago out of no where woke up with a headache thought okay… must be just a headache, sat in the car went for a drive IT WAS BACK exactly like it was, soon as i sat in the car and drove BOOM motion sickness, headaches, vertigo brain shakes and have been suffering again for over a week now. This time i think its alot worse or i just forgot how it felt, my headaches are constant all day especialy when standing and walking and making me feel really sick at times. Its extremely debilitating and making me just want to lay in bed all day… I really cant figure out what stopped it or what started it again i cant think of any triggers other then im sick and tired of it.
I was taking Seremind and stopped it 2 weeks before my symtpoms returned but doubt it returned cause of that.
Can anyone help me with similiar cases and what it ended up being? Im so young and this is stoppipng me from being happy and exersising and being healthy
Most recent update is doctor is sending me for a sleep s tudy might have sleep apnoea causing oxygen loss to the brain cause even though ive been sleeping long i always feel tired and yawn during the day still
Other option is I sleep underneath a window and can feel breezes along my head ( cold ) while i sleep and i sleep in this breeze\cross wind every night might that affect my head? maybe i try sleeping away from the window…
Not only is it just debilitating its causing my anxiety to flare up again, doctors have all told me its nothing serious and to try ignore it but its hard to ignore something tha taffects you so much you can tell me all you want that its not dangerous but when a bad bout of it flares up it scares the sh**t out of me…
any advice would be great… thanks i am not usually a person who is bed written all day and i want my normal self back, jst confused as to why it went away n came back??
Should i try the Pizotifen? Only reason I dont want to is i dont want to have to rely on medication for the rest of my life and the fact that they cant pinpoint vestibular migraine and dont want to take it for no reason?
Or should i just give it a shot? Doctors say to just try it for 3-4 days ifi feel better to continue if not to stop and i will not have any withdrawls.
Never tried SSRI’s never will touch that stuff. My anxiety was beaten on my own with my psychologist and feel great other then this dizzyness.
