Good evening, and thank you for being here!
I'm a 26-year-old woman, and the last 6/7 months I have a problem that messes up my life. There are several symptoms (mild confusion, sleepiness, the floor feeling wavy, headaches) but the main one is dizziness.
They appear at 3 points of the head: the back of the head (at the top-of-the ears level) is the most bugging one. It sometimes gets strong headaches too.
Also the centre of the forehead, which could relate to my sinus sensitivity, yet hurts 2 fingers above the usual spot.
Last, the point between them, top-back of the head. But it's only a source of dizziness, never headache.
Sometimes only 1 spot hurts me, usually the back-of-the-head one.
The symptoms aren't constant, there is a cycle of a few weeks. They start very subtly, but in the end I have a constant sense of nearly falling, and also mess up my words and thoughts. After 10 days of "wave-walking" they hit a low point (it takes 2-3 days) and about a week later start over again.
Depression? My life's going quite well so it's not psychological. Nothing has changed to my daily habits either, exept from the hour I fall asleep (still 7 hours, though). I have a history of low pressure and relatively low weight, but lately I eat better than usual. I have a history of good blood exams too. I do spend a lot of time reading/surfing, but never really had problems before. I had some teeth problems that caused me migraines, which I got rid of, and my dentist says the remaining dizziness has nothing to do with teeth. Also, my myopia got recently reduced by half degree. I changed glasses, with only a minor improvement of my diziness issue. I've had a few happenings of my left hand trembling or getting stingy on the vein, but there's a distance of about 2 months between them, so it's most probably nothing.
What I've found to relieve me a little is prolonged sleep and massaging the centre of the back of the neck. Massaging doesn't work for long, and when I get as much sleep as I want my head feels weird from oversleeping.
I know you cannot give me an official diagnosis, but any ideas might help me to get a lead...Thank you in advance :)
