Dizziness? Light-Headedness? Fatigue? Dizziness? Stress? I Don't Know Whats Wrong With ME!!!

Hello, everyone, it has been a while but I have a problem.

I keep getting attacks of dizziness ( to be honest I feel high). I keep getting really weak, fatigued and light headed. It's at the point now, I'm begging for a flare just to get rid of whatever this is. It's making me sick and putting me in a bad mood. Is this just bad fatigue? or is it something else! I cant cope with this. I slept all day yesterday and I'm still so tired, not tired, exhausted. I'm getting more pain with this, pain in my joints and my ribs and this is causing my endo to flare too.

I feel like I'm about to flare, but it's not coming! I don't know what to do, I'm honestly at a loss.

I get the same, usually as a precursor to the fibro headache. Sometimes it develops into a fibro flare but more often might get away with "just" the head and neck pain.

Make sure your not even slightly dehydrated.

I drink a large glass of water, take Solpadeine ( thank you the person here who recommended it to me--- saved my sanity) and go to bed. You might not be able to do the last if you work/ have children. I also stick a pain patch on the back of my neck .

I've not found out what would happen if I didn't do the above, not sure how the dizziness would progress, as I'm too scared to find out.

I don't really get bad headaches anymore, (since I got my Daith pierced). If I do get a headache I take Paramax. I don't have any pain patches, unfortunately.

I just went through bad dizzyness. Found out it was vertigo. doc done these simple movements on my head and its gone. Happens when cristles in your ears move and he put them back. Could not believe how simple it was. Hope you get rid of yours soon. X

Hi Georgiew94

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing this symptoms.

I have experienced similar symptoms and it was considered as part of the Dysautonomia of these conditions. My GP considered it could possibly be postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, so I am providing this link out of interest;

nhs.uk/conditions/postural-...

I would consider speaking to you GP about the symptoms as we would always refer you to you healthcare professional for a diagnosis.

Hope this helps :)
