Mornings are the worst for me Kirsty. The rigmarole i have to go through to get up, dressed, and out to work is hard slog!! I feel much better as the day goes on and by the time i go to bed i feel almost normal
The day either gets better or lately its quite similar throughout then will manifest into a full blow migraine! Usually though my dizziness does get better as the day goes on. When I first lay down flat at night too I can feel like I am being pulled around the bed or the bed is sinking x
Ive always had the " dragged to the ground" feeling still do get it more so when ive been over doing things or getting out of a car after travel. But i do improve a lot by bedtime and dont get it when i lay down at all
Kirsty. Welcome to my World! I’ve had all this, and like James and Jo mornings always worse. I used to say I always felt as if I had to relearn how to balance from scratch every morning when I got up. Most of these symptoms are gone/very much reduced now,
From my own, very recent, experience, I am beginning to wonder about the connection between (1) and (4) above points, that ‘derealisation’ sensation and the result of (inadvertently) placing overwhelming strain on eye muscles which is a new concept I’ve been trying to get my head around this week as a result of my new glasses prescription.
Ref (1) and (4). Kirsty. How long have you experienced these two symptoms? Can you pin point it most particularly in relation to when you started the Ami? Helen
In ref to 1 and 4 I most certainly have has these for years!
Since Ami things did settle a little more but since the botox I think everything is much more heightened. Hoping this will pass again although I can feel a migraine on yhe horizon!
I’ve no idea I’m afraid, a spine mri might be able to detect it. It might be worth looking it up online and asking your neuro about it if you feel it fits your symptoms - if not, just ignore me lol. You can get your eyes tested to check for the imbalance at a regular opticians as long as you ask them about it specifically before your appointment. I can’t remember what the name of the condition is called but i know that some people say they have to close one eye to stop being dizzy.
Thank you for the info! I will ask neuro when I see her next. Not long had an eye test and nothing was mentioned so I dont know if it is that. Will do some digging on it and see what I can find. Hopefully it is just MAV and it will pass…
