the vertigo and unsteadiness (which has become more of a swaying back and forth) is not getting any better. i take antivert but i think i need something stronger. i have 4 children, 3 under 5, and i cannot take care of them like this. i am going to call the doctor tomorrow because i can't even drive to get food and my cupboards are empty. anyone here had to take something other than antivert to keep the "dizzy's" away?
yikes! that is a lot to take in. and you were just recently diagnosed with uctd? what does your rheumy think you lean towards having? what are your symptoms with the dizziness if you don't mind telling me? i wonder about the partial seizures because i had an incident where i was driving and my head felt heavy and i felt out of it and i could not stay in my lane (like i was drunk but i wasn't) and i became so tired by the time i got home. well, i slept for 14 hours straight which is a lot for me because i have great difficulty sleeping. i was still so tired when i awoke. but...i am having unusual headaches like my brain is shifting or moving like waves inside my head. well, the dizziness is a pain because if i don't catch a reprieve from it i get sick to my stomach. i called the doctor but she wants to see me again on wednesday. i have my neuro appt on june 8th.
what a pain! i hope we both get some answers soon...
