We can’t diagnose you on here. But I will tell you I had several different diagnoses too.

The most important thing is they rule out a neuroma or anything really serious (which can kill you), so go through the process of being diagnosed. They are extremely rare but can be devastating if not dealt with.

The other thing to focus on is getting treatment that helps you with your symptoms. There really is only one protocol to try and its the MAV protocol we talk about on this site, it pretty much covers all the bases of chronic dizziness unless you have something more serious.

I have done mri for my brain
Done xray for my neck
Everything is normal
Do you mean if even i dont have migraine could the medicine help me with my dizziness and rocking sensation
I have done physical therapy for my neck and have done balance physical therapy as well

‘migraine’ is a diagnosis of exclusion.

I had same symptoms as you but my issues were caused by trauma. Some doctors called it ‘migraine’, others ‘secondary hydrops’.

Yes, the medicine is for chronic dizziness, call it migraine if you like :slight_smile:

Amitriptyline stopped the dizziness for me mostly, but I was left with a feeling of imbalance for several years which has finally gone. I used to get rocking. That has gone too. It may just take time.

No problem Haya, stick with us and let us know how you get on :slight_smile:

Once you start to feel a bit better, the anxiety should start to decrease. We know how it feels, but things will get better!
