About four years ago my ENT specialist diagnosed my have MD ( since then another ENT has done likewise )
At the present time I am on a disability benefit as my attacks can be so bad, usually my eyes feel funny and it hurts to move them, even slightly, if I do I get very dizzy, this continues for about two days until I get so bad I can only lay on the bed and keep as still as possible, I can not eat or drink as moving my head makes me so sick ( have noises in ear at same time on and off, very high pitch then very low )
Now the thi ng is i read that such attacks can last maybe 24 hours but mine usually last around 6 days from start to finish, meantime I take in no food or water ( too sick to drink ) and I vomit so much every day and usually end up in hospital on a fluid drip ( as happened again last friday when my attack lasted 6 days.
Is it just me or do others also have attacks like this lasting so long, several days, not hours ?
The reason I ask is because I wonder maybe I have another problem, but my head scan did not show up anything, so like I said do others have attacks like this.
