I am new so here’s a history:
In March of 2015 I woke one night with nausea, got sick then felt a rush from the back of my head. The violent vertigo then started dropping me to floor with constant vomiting. My husband was with me and after 45 minutes we called an ambulance. After tests they concluded it was probably due to a bug. I recovered fine.
July 2015 exact thing happened again. After this I haven’t had a “normal” day.
My days consist of these in various degrees:
Waves of pressure going through head
Neck stiffness/ aching
I was diagnosed with MAV after seeing ent specialist and doing the tests such as spinning chair etc. I do not have BPPV. I have had ocular migraines since my teens but no traditional migraine headaches. The traditional migraine diet helped a lot. I do not take any meds at all.
For a few reasons I recently decided to take Lexapro. I was on 5mg for three days and on 4th day had a reaction to it. Nausea, dizzy, waves going through my head followed with anxiety through my body ,(there’s no good way to explain that one) among other things.
I haven’t taken it for 6 days now and I keep getting a rushing through the back of my head with an anxious feeling along with nausea. Have I messed up my brain and thrown it out of whack even more by taking an SSRI? Has anyone else experienced this?
Thanks for any input on this.
