Ah, the empathetic posts of comparison and how we're much in the same boat makes me happy to see we're together but also sad that we're going through any of this. Thanks for sharing those notes. They made me say good grief to people's disbelief but also understand I'm not alone and hear the same things as well. Thank you.
I'm always intrigued to learn more from your posts and how you cope / what makes this whole diagnosis tick. And also how your day-to-day is going as well cause you are good, fun people. The laughter helps.
As a note, It's hard fighting alone sometimes tho and being your own support system when you're brought down quite hard from these recurring symptoms.
Someone today said it sounds like it may be a placebo effect. I said it's not, but then just kind of stopped cause I didn't have the fight in me to explain further.
I'll give my progress of 11/7/2017 and 11/8/2017
My imbalance was reducing and so was the head pain. I visited my brother at his work again and started to get dizzy. I was completely fine beforehand, but it was once I stepped foot in his store. I figured out it's another trigger -- fluorescent lights!
Every time I visit my dad in the basement near all his computers I always feel nauseous / woozy / dizzy and he said "you're claustrophobic". I said "no".
I figured out it's the fluorescent lights there too. It all makes sense. It's why I always felt a bit off in the hallways at work as well. It sucks that it is what it is, but it's good that I know. Adding that to the list of my triggers.
Decent day, was feeling pretty good. I'd say a 70%-80% day with some minor glitches here and there.
In the evening I got rear ended in a car accident, I have back pain and neck pain now from whiplash. I felt pretty dizzy 5 mins after the impact and continued on for a couple hours. I knew I was getting migraine rumbles from it. 2 hours later or so I finally got in for a cat scan and during the cat scan I felt like my brain was on fire a tiny bit and very tight. Have I become that receptive to changes?? I know it wasn't in my head (no pun intended) because before they had the machine activated I was fine. After it stopped I was fine instantly too. Just very strange.
I'm laying in my bed with neck and back pain hoping the pain in the next few days won't set off any increasing dizziness.
