After months of to-ing and fro-ing to GP's, physiotherapists etc. and a lot of worry and heartache I finally saw an Audiologist who has diagnosed me with Migraine Associated Dizziness. I don't get the headaches but I do get visual disturbance and a horrible woozy, dizzy feeling everyday for the last 4 months.
I was prescribed Pizotifin starting at 0.5mg building up to 2mg over the weeks and writing a daily food/trigger diary, plus an MRI scan of my head scheduled for mid-August. (slightly aprehensive about this).
I'm in week 3 of the diary and Pizotifin (excuse my spelling) and although initially I felt like things were getting better it feels like I'm going back to how I was - daily imbalanced, tipsy, spaced-out feeling, mild naseau, blotchy vision, tingly pressure across the top of my head in a band, eye ache (left eye predominately), left temple pain and just feeling generally unwell and pretty miserable.
(So far I think my PC screen, flourescent lights & driving makes it worse and hard exercise makes it briefly better, rest and time away from the PC also helps, can't work out any foods yet).
I can function, nothing is really severe but it is persistent and just won't go away. I'm due to go back to see the Audiologist in November.
So that is is my story.
I would like to hear from those who have been diagnosed with similar and their experiences, please.
