Have been suffering dizzy spells and feeling light-headed, sensitivity to noise and artificial llights, mild headaches, swollen glands, stiff neck, feel spaced out ALL THE TIME, like I'm drunk or something, wobbly legs. Been off work for 5 MONTHS with these symptoms and eventually got to see a neurologist who told me I am suffering from chronic migraine. I'm confused. How can migraine last for 5 months? There has been no let up in my dizzyness/weird vision, wobbly legs etc. I have been having headaches, but they weren't that bad (although painkillers didn't alleviate the pain), and they weren't every day, perhaps 3 a week. My ears feel constantly like they are about to pop.
Has anyone else been diagnosed with this condition and had the same symptoms. I feel very confused, I don't know if this curable, if I will ever feel back to normal i.e. can see properly, not dizzy, full of energy. I have been told to cut out all caffeine and to stop taking painkillers immediately. I know my headaches will get worse before they get better but will I ever be able to drive again, will I ever get my energy levels back again?
Please someone help me. I'm so depressed, it's been going on too long.
