Hi, I am 25 years old, I am a woman, and let me explain myself, I used to be the healthiest person in the world, I used to do a lot of exercise.. But one day, suddenly I suffered from lightheadness. I went with a doctor, and he told me that probably it was a stomach infection, so he gave me antibiotics, he gave me ciprofloxacin. I took it for 2 months also, and that medicine made me super sensitive for light.
I finished my treatment, and to not make my story very long, I have been suffering from dizziness and lightheadness apisodes for two years now. Here is the list of the tests that the doctors have done:
MRI of the BRAIN
10 Blood test
More brain tests
Ear tests (they did me like 10 different tests, and the only thing they could came up with was: you definitely have a balance problem, but we dont know why)
I really am desperate, I dont know what to do. Every morning I wake up feeling great, but as the days goes by, I feel like my energy is being sucked by someone else. I feel very fatigues every day. I am sleeping like 10 hours a day. I cant help it, is like my body is asking for that sleep time. The weird thing is that every morning I can tell if its going to be a good day or bad day.
A doctor suggested me, that maybe I have a vestibular migraine. Because I have noticed that every time that I see those big white lights, I get so dizzy, that i feel that Im about to faint.. I have never fainted, but the feeling is so real, that I have to get out of those places with those lights..
Currently I am in treatment for allergies... A doctor saw my nose and my ears, and he told me that my only problem es severe allergies to somethign in the environment, and as I get nasal congestion, this makes my innear ear get inflamated, and thats why I get so dizzy... I dont know, for mw is the most accurate prediction... But I dont know if allergies can cause 2 years of dizziness ?? I am currently under allergies shot, its been only 3 shots, but I havent seen any improvement.
PLEASE, WHOEVER READS THIS, PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME, GIVE ME IDEAS OF WHAT THIS COULD BE.
I am desperate, is horrible to be dizzy for 2 years, I feel like I just got off a boat or something, I need to get my life back, this is affecting my life now. I lost a job because of this, and now I dont feel like goign out, like before..
Please, if a doctor is reading this, please give me some advice, what else can I do?? Do i need another study?? Wwhat is happening to me??
