This August I was driving home from the doctor, I had hurt my heel in a basketball game and just got a Cortizone shot in the bottom of my heel. On the drive home I started feeling funny but thought nothing of it. As I got on the bridge my whole world started to go out of Focus. Didn't feel dizzy but just felt off-balance, out of whack, my heart started racing, I'm not one For the dramatics at all but I almost died!!! I had to keep fighting this feeling of feeling like I was gonna pass out and throw up!! I willed myself off the bridge and parked it at the first spot I could find I was so Shaken up that it literally took me about a half hour to text my brother to come get me and drive me home. Thought I had a panic attack which was something I had never experienced in my life before.
The next day was off Completely!!! I'm talking room spinning!! neck hurting just didn't Make any sense to me? Thought I had an allergic reaction to the code is Overshot but as weeks would guy then months I would find out that's not the case. It ended up getting so bad I check myself in the hospital ( I HATE AND DON'T DO HOSPITALS) I was in there for 3 days did the EKG on my heart nothing wrong, every four hour blood check Did a sonogram on my heart and x-ray everything fine doctor said I was in great shape every test they ran they said I was fine. I was starting to feel crazy cuz I was off I would try to walk and start Veering to the right or left I've never in my life had a problem with coordination and now I can walk a straight line ???? After leaving the hospital not even 8 hour later I was back in the ER bc the room my world was spinning BAD!!! I got to the ER and that's when a dr with a brain told me I had vertigo. He recommended I go see a ear and throat doctor. Which I did he did all these test said I had above average hearing and that I should literally walk it off .... Ok doc ???!! I then went and got a MRI which sucked and showed that everything was fine !!
After that I went back to my doctor and He prescribed Valium, it help a Lil in the beginning but after while I didn't feel the vertigo so much but I was always tired and just kinda out of it. On top of that I hate pills and developed actual panic attacks when I felt a Overwhelming sensation coming on. I got super depressed and this whole thing has Crippled my life. I stopped the Valium be cause it was making me depressed and the panic attacks stop but my vertigo has come on full Force!!!! I been dealing with this vertigo **** since August and I can't take it!!! No one gets it !!! People don't really understand !!!! And I don't know what to do !! I feel bad for my wife cuz I know she is tired of hearing me ***** but I can't take it !!! don't even wanna leave my house. I'm just looking from help from who ever!! I just wanna be healthy again or at least get a brake from this vertigo. The last step is to see a neurologist but I have spent so much Money out of pocket for all these test That I'm scared to pay for the test to be told that I'm fine
Sorry For the novel But I have a huge job opportunity coming up and I'm so nervous I'm going to have to pass because of this vertigo I guess I just need to vent to people that actually know how I feel and what I'm going threw at least I hope ?? Don't really know how this works but that's pretty much it
