Hello... this is very vague but I thought I would post and see what kind of responses I get. My current doctor has been essentially useless for the past year (I will be seeing someone new) but in the meantime I thought I would see if I could get some feedback.
I am a 34 year old female in good health. I have never had any serious medical conditions and have always felt pretty good in general. Then at the end of Feb 2009, I felt brutally dizzy one day. It continued the next day too, and the following day I was heading off for a trip to Vegas and was worried if I should even go. I did go, and the dizzy spells came and went throughout the trip, and really put a damper on things. Its not like I would get the spins or would fall over, I would just feel dizzy, foggy, couldn't really think straight, zoned out. it was really bothersome. I would always feel fine first thing when I woke up, but if I was meant to be dizzy that day it would start up about an hour after I woke up. sometimes it would last all day, sometimes it would last a few hours, but it was never less than 3 or 4 hours in a row.
when I got back from vegas I saw my doctor, who ordered a bunch of blood tests and found nothing wrong. Diabetes runs in my family but I knew it wasn't that, aneurysms run in my family too but I always associated that with headaches (I have had about 3 headaches in my entire lifetime). My doctor just told me it was stress and that was that. I was really stressed out at the time, so I thought maybe she was right. I also however saw an inner ear specialist, who did all kinds of tests on me and also found nothing wrong, so basically came to the conclusion that I had vestibular migraine, which I also didn't really think was it, and still don't.
anyway in the past several months the dizzy spells come and go. I can go 3 or 4 weeks without one attack, and then have 5 straight days of dizziness. in the past few weeks the dizziness now begins when i first wake up, and the spins are happening too. i sometimes feel way more tired when i should, like i could sleep and sleep, although this seems pretty sporadic as well. i guess i just don't know what i have, and think MS could be a possibility. my aunt has had MS for several years so it could run in the family.
Anyway just wanted to see if anyone has any ideas. Thanks
