Re: Dizzyness comes in waves
Thanks for your response. I would say when I have the dizziness, it is more like a wave of lightheadedness than actually a spinning feeling, but my balance is terrible like I've had a few too many drinks. Then it passes until the next time which I don't know when that will be. I do have some high-pitched ringing in my ears (It's hard to tell, but I think it's in my right ear mostly). I have tried the Epley maneuver with directions I found on the internet, but I'm a little scared to keep doing other ones like the Brandt-Daroff because I'm not certain exactly what's going on and I don't want to make myself worse then I am. When I went to the ENT, he called my primary doctor while I was there because my blood pressure was so high, so that's when my primary added another blood pressure medication to the other two I'm already taking, but now my blood pressure seems a little too low 99/55, pulse 54. I don't think my primary doctor knows what to do with me so he refers me back to the ENT but I hate to keep bothering him. He's the one who put me on the patch but that made me feel really dizzy and sick. I don't understand why a doctor precribes a medicine that has a side effect that is what you are already suffering with. I don't think they really know what to do. I really feel empathy for all those out there that are having the some problem I'm having now. I feel totally helpless and have so many things I want to do but I don't feel well enough to even drive myself to the store.
