Oh, my heart goes out to you, honey!! *hugs* Vertigo is one of the worst feelings in the world!!
A little under a year ago I went through a nasty week of recurring vertigo and nausea. It was so bad, I lost 7 pounds in one day...threw up for 8 hours straight (I think that's what you call the Hollywood diet!). Anyway, I saw three doctors about it, and they all said "nothing was wrong" with me. The last doctor I saw told me I probably had a migraine without the headache, and gave me a bottle of valium. I guess it worked. It knocked me out so I slept through the rest of it, but I kind of feel like it was a pacifier more than anything else. Just knock me out and shut me up.
It is so very frustrating. I don't know how doctors can say there is "nothing wrong" with us, when clearly there is. But I will say this....if your doctor won't listen to you, get a new one. I had to go through 5 doctors before I found one who took me seriously. Don't feel like you have to keep quiet about this.
I highly recommend checking out a book called 'YOU! The Smart Patient". It's written by a pair of doctors....Oprah has them on her show all the time (Oprah won't steer us wrong!) Anyway, it's a really good resource, full of great information that helped me tremendously! Plus, it's in real terms people can understand. And it's under $10 at amazon.com.
Whatever you do, don't let this get the better of you. I know it can be simply horrible, but just remember This Too Shall Pass. It will. Keep it in your head, repeat it to yourself and write it on the fridge or something. But remember that it is true. This will pass. You are strong. And we all believe in you and are here for you.
Don't keep quiet. Talk about it. That's the best way, in my opinion, to get through tough times. Talk about it and seek support.
Good luck with everything. Remember, I'm pullin' for ya. We're all in this together.
