I’m recovering from a 2 month spell of weakness, headaches, light headedness, fatigue and altered sensation and for the last couple of weeks I have had patches of pretty bad dizziness where I’ve had to sit down or grab something so I don’t fall over. I’m not currently diagnosed and have a pattern of ‘relapses’ every year or so but this is the first time I’ve experienced dizziness.
I’ve managed to isolate triggers to moving my head too fast, there being a lot of visual stimuli- like in a busy shop, and scrolling too fast on a screen. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on easing the dizzy feeling? Sometimes I just feel a bit fuzzy and lightheaded and other times I feel like the whole room is spinning. Aside from staring at the same spot for ages I haven’t found much that helps and it is affecting my ability to work.
I’m usually pretty strong through most of my symptoms but the dizziness is really getting to me and making me feel very low. I have a private neuro appointment next week so I am going to bring it up, but any advice/ tips/ dizziness solidarity would be much appreciated!
