Finally Got A Diagnosis...

it's been four years now of being sick constantly every single day. I started to get allergies a few years ago before this all started so I started taking benadryl. since then, every time I didn't take the benadryl I got so sick throwing up, head spinning. I finally got a diagnosis that it is vertigo and that there is nothing I can really to do to stop it for good. I just hate the fact that I will have to take benadryl pills every day causing me stomach ulcers. I am a little relieved that I finally know what it is though. its really depressing knowing that this is not going away. :(

vertigo is awful. if they did not find an exact reason (meniere's disease, BPPV, neuroma)...i definitely suggest looking up a balance clinic. they specialize in helping people cope and even eliminating symptoms from things that cant be seen on MRIs or other medical testing. Hope you are doing better this year.

how did you get it? is it somehow reversible?

I'm so sorry that is happening to you. I have never had Vertigo but someone I knew had multiple sclerosis. This female person got really sick and she said her stomach hurt sometimes like yours. Before she died, I helped make her as comfortable as possible. I think she was happy to know there were people who cared about her and made her comfortable to the very end.
