Not really tinnitus related, although perhaps...
I woke up at 4am 4 days ago with an all too familiar feeling of vertigo.
I've had these episodes before, throughout my 34 tears, even as a young child, but usually limited to the one episode. Never has it been so long-lasting, so I'm naturally very worried.
Each episode is triggered when I enter a new position I.e. if I turn on my side to the other side, get up from a lying position, or go to lie down from a sitting or standing position, will trigger the vertigo spinning and associated nausea.
The length of the nausea is a directly correlated to the severity of the vertigo episode.
GP is suggesting i just "wait" for a couple months before they'd consider further checks, but this is unbearable. I can't sleep because of it.
My medication stack is already pretty intense thanks to my recent Graves diagnosis (hyperthyroid), but I have been making really good progress in all metrics recently through the block & replace approach - FWIW, my TSH now traceable and both FT3 and FT4 normal ranges.
I'm wondering if anyone thinks these protracted vertigo episode could be related to my thyroid issues? Perhaps I've regressed and perhaps related to my accelerated heartbeat (I have been feeling rather more anxious and tight-chested recently, but I don't see much evidence about this online).
Has anyone else suffered this way or is there a suggested alternative forum you think I should visit?
