I’ve been diagnosed with MAV in 2015. It’s all in an earlier post so no need to put it all here.
For me, my symptoms always increase July - December so not too surprised when it started rising again. This Fall it’s still rising. There’s been way more dizziness, nausea etc causing me to leave work early etc. Living in the Northeast with the warm humid conditions so bad this year, I thought this may be why. Now into cooler weather, it’s not receding.
I wasn’t feeling great last night going to bed then at 1 am, I rolled over and the pressure waves, nausea, headache, anxiety all flooded in. I was afraid to get up to get meds (meclizine) that the vertigo would start. Luckily my husband was willing to get it. The symptoms have subdued but JUST A LITTLE. I took more meclizine at 9:30 and probably another soon. I have tried to lie down but that makes it worse. Needless to say I am very scared
I have been careful with diet, eliminating even more foods to try to back this down. I seem to also become more sensitive with lights or something that are in the grocery stores, doctors offices and the motion of elevators even???
I have an appointment on Nov 6 with the Dr. who diagnosed me but I needed to talk to people who know what I am going through.
