I’m feeling very, very bummed because I had promised my son to take him on a trip and I’m hardly able to walk from my room to the kitchen without suddenly feeling nausea, a sick head and motion sickness. I am on Lamotrigine 100mg daily (divided am and pm) which is not helping. (The first med, Topomax, did not help either). I’ve already spent the last 3 and a half months trying these medications to no avail and before that one whole year of these horrible symptoms until a doctor finally diagnosed the condition. I really thought I would be better by now. I have lost hope totally that I will ever get better. My trip has been on hold and I feel my son suffers from my condition as it causes me so much anguish. I am his only parent. I can’t take him anywhere. I can drive only a few miles then I get the same feeling. I work p/t as a teacher and thank goodness for remote right now. After a few minutes of doing any normal activity, I have to stop and just sit. This has put an end to my normal life period. I really want to start my recovery but I am not getting any results I had hoped for. Even 5%. I am exasperated of feeling sick each day. It takes so much out of you.
Any encouraging words on your recovery, preventative medications that cured you, other meds that helped you would help me to know. (Dramamine, Meclizine, Promethazine, all make me feel loopy and worse and don’t really take nausea away).
I am filled with dread. Please help.
Will I ever be able to travel?
