I have to tell my story to let people know they are not alone and doctors can be wrong. my vertigo symptoms started in 2008. it was horrible. i was so dizzy i couldn't even crawl to the bathroom without falling over. it would go on for weeks, and then, it would just stop. sometimes weeks, sometimes months. my life was just going down hill. i had so many plans and dreams and couldn't do a thing about it. i was in the emergency room many times because i couldn't keep fluids down which made me deathly dehiderated. the doctors didn't know what was wrong. I got pregnant with my first child in 2010. throughout my whole pregnancy, i was fine. no symptoms AT ALL! I thought i was cured. 2 weeks after i had him, i started getting sick again. There were times i couldn't take care of my child. thank god, the neighbor in my apt. building was a good family friend. Many times i had to crawl to his apartment to come get my son. the stress was horrible. waking up, afraid i wouldn't be able to take care of my kid and hoping someone would be available. Going to bed, praying to god to just help me. I got so desperate that i almost called cys to come take him to foster care until i could get better. i found my fiance' in 2011, he did all he could but he worked a lot. I got pregnant again. my whole pregnancy, i was fine. i felt great.we moved to a different town, everything seemed blissfully, perfect. i could take care of my son and give him the love and attention that he needs. after i had my second son, 2 wks. later, i got sick again. i had to call my fiance' to come home from work because i was afraid to hold the baby. all night i was in bed. i couldn't move my head. it was to painful to make any head movements. i couldn't function. i was throwing up and could hardly make it in the garbage next to me. i couldn't keep fluids down. i couldn't lay down because i felt worse. the same thing thats happened so many times before. i got dehidrated and had to be rushed to the emergency room. the doctors have been giving me stuff for migranes for a year now. i think they just didn't know the cause so just guessed and left it at that. i told my doctors how i was fine both times i was pregnant. they said it was a coincidence. i decided i should try birth control because nothing else was working. the gynocologist said it would make it worse and refused to give it to me. i went to my old gyno whom i have great respect for. i told her that it is not a coincidence and to give me whatever birthcontrol is the strongest. she gave me the NUVA RING. just a month ago, and i have been fine. i knew it all along. i diagnosed myself and canceled all my appointments with the headache specialists. i know its not a migrane. i have explained myself so many times and got nowhere. they couldnt understand that the migranes came after the dizziness and got worse after i puked for hours. so girls. if nothing else works. regardless of what the doctors say. try birth control. it won't hurt to try it. or u can get pregnant and c if that works. it did for im so relieved that this is all i needed. god bless
