Not Exactly Back


I mentioned in my last post that I was taking two weeks off due to illness. In the time I’ve been away I’ve met with a neurologist, had an MRI of my brain, an EEG, and an ultrasound of my carotid artery. I’ve also tried a variety of medications.

The good news is that my tests seem to all be normal (I haven’t received the results of the EEG yet). The bad news is that none of my symptoms are improving. I am dizzy and nauseous to the point where I can’t function at all, most of the time. I can’t get in to see my neurologist until the 13th although I will be calling today to see if he can call in some other medication for me.

This is very frustrating because I actually have a lot to share on this blog right now. It’s just really hard to type. So here is my solution. I’m not going to blog for two more weeks. Then, on the 19th I will let you know what the doctor has to say and if I’m able to get back into this or if I have more tests etc.to do.

Thanks for your patience and support! It is greatly appreciated!  I have felt like I am spinning for about four months now!! I just want it to stop. It’s interrupting every aspect of my life.

Wish me luck and I will see you in two weeks

  2. Oh no! I hope they track the cause down soon!

    I’ve had vertigo twice, for about a week to a week and a half each time. For me, it was just sinuses, that the Urgent Care doctor missed. But hey, my brain scan showed my brain healthy and symmetrical. I remember hitting a curb and needing my tires re-aligned, because I tried to change the radio station, but couldn’t maintain a straight line.

      Thanks so much, Morgan! It sounds like you’ve really been through the ringer too! I hope that you are recovered and that all that vertigo is behind you. Thanks so much for reading my blog!

      • I’m all better here.

        Now I just joke that when I get sinus stuff, it’s “all in my head”… half the time, I lose my voice and get a touch of vertigo about 3-5 days BEFORE I even start to have a stuffly nose.
