i have had mav since i was young but wow did i have it hit the worst after having my children.
after my son (c-section) i was super dizzy with true vertigo for 2 days that i couldn’t even get out of bed to go see him in the nicu it slowly got better within the week and i was back to normal.
after my daughter 2 years ago, i had another c-section surgery was a little dizzy but fine and then 2 days later when i thought i was getting ready to go home woke up with the true spinning vertigo (ABSOLUTE HELL) and that took about a month ? to turn into my new normal which is 24/7 rockiness.
i have been diagnosed with mav and spontaneous mdds. i used to blame it on the pain meds or even the epidural but i do think this is also hormonal. i took birth control for 2 years because i too got way dizzier 2 days before my period (estrogen crashes) so i took the pills so i just didn’t get a period. now meeting with a new naturopath doctor, i too have decided to get off synthetic hormones. it’s been 1 month and we will see how it goes.
