First Off I Want to wish every one a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
May the holidays find you happy and painfree!!! What a gift that would be heh?!
I have been having an increase in my headaches, migraines and now a new symptom dizziness/vertigo type. Talked to my nurse and she spoke to my Reg Doc (an Internal Medicine Doctor) and he is sending me to neurologist. Anyone else having dizziness with their headaches? What do you do to treat it?
Also I have Chiari 1 Malformation so do not know if this is a symptom of my Fibro or of the Chiari. I had mentioned my neck has been sore to my Pain Doc a few weeks back and he said it was probably due to my Chiari as well as it causes alot of headaches. I said yes I have headaches and migraines alot. Pain doc said probably the Chiari is causing them. This pain Doc treats my back/spine issues btw.
Well I am just blabbering on but I guess it does not matter from which condition but it is very scary when I get dizzy like that and the room is spinning I feel as If I am going to fall.
Any suggestions for now until I get an authorization from Tricare and the appt is set to deal with the dizzy spells?
