Hi everyone! I haven’t posted in awhile and I just wanted to log on and let everyone know that I’m getting better! I can’t believe it, but Nortriptyline is helping me! I still have 24/7 disquilibirum but it’s way less then it was and I’m actually going places again! I even went to the American Idol concert last week (wore ear plugs) when it came to Phoenix. I was dizzy during the concert (the flashing lights made me dizzy), but it wasn’t that bad at all. Nortriptyline has taken away probably 80% of my dizziness in the head and I almost feel normal when sitting and laying down. I still have disequilibrium when walking, but I am hoping everyday that it will become less and less and will one day go away completely. Going on the computer still makes my symptoms increase dramatically so I try not to log onto the computer that much, but other then that I’m feeling a bit better each day!
You are all in my thoughts. This illness is the most awful, debilitating thing I have ever experienced and I want you to know that you can get better. Just a few months ago I thought I would never feel well again. The ground constantly felt like a trampoline, suspension bridge, moving boat, etc. My vision would shift and shake all the time while walking. My symptoms would increase ten fold by going into enclosed spaces, under flourescent lights, using a computer, etc. I was sick to my stomach 24/7. It was horrible! But now I’m better!
