I was on the mend for a little while there. All of a sudden I’m back to where I was. The ice-cold vibration runs down my spine again. Now I’m incredibly lightheaded and for two weeks now every time I turn my head or the temperature changes I feel like I could black out at any moment. I’m struggling to be a mum to my three babies. Come dinner time my body is so exhausted and so dizzy that getting off the couch is impossible. I’ve been taking Stemetil for two weeks now to no avail.
Today i I made the call to my neuro because she told me to call if my symptoms got unbearable and she would write me a prescription for something but apparently she’s on holidays for another week. She said I’d need to give up breastfeeding my five-month old. Not what I wanted at all which was why I initially declined the meds.
None of my family or friends truly understand how awful this feels. I get the impression that they think I’m exaggerating. I wish I were. Today I cried - I’m afraid that this is going to be my reality for the rest of my life. Anyone else feeling super over it? How do you cope with the awful lightheadedness?
