Hi everyone. Okay, so I understand nobody here can diagnose me, but I’m hoping for some input as I begin this journey. I am extremely concerned about this possibly being Menieres because last year I was diagnosed with an extremely rare disease that causes inflammation in my retina, leading to blindness. I’ve already lost a significant amount of vision so the thought of losing hearing too is just ….overwhelmingly dreadful. I am 33 years old and a female. Back story- Last year around the exact same time I experienced a sudden onset of my eye disease, I experienced a massive increase in sound sensitivity in my right ear. Alongside, I just felt really crappy, foggy, had brain zaps, just generally unwell. My retina specialist was fully aware of all my symptoms and ordered an MRI brain/orbit and everything came back normal so he chalked it up to a migraine. fast forward to about twelve days ago- I woke up around 5 AM with the entire room spinning. I have never experienced anything quite like that before (except after drinking tequila, which I no longer do) and it only lasted for a few minutes, if not less. That whole day I felt really crummy, sluggish, dizzy intermittently, and started to notice the sound sensitivity I experienced a year ago was back. Next morning- same thing, super dizzy. I connected it to sleeping on my left side, so for the past week I’ve made sure to sleep only on my back or right side and alas, no more vertigo in the morning. I ended up seeing my primary (virtual appointment so none of the clinical tests for BPPV were done) who suggested I have BPPV… which I was a little surprised about considering the noise sensitivity I was experiencing isnt really characteristic of BPPV. I do not have any tinnitus, I have maybe very slight congestion in my ears- but my hearing feels completely normal. Again, it’s been about 12 days and the dizziness hasn't subsided (morning vertigo has as long as I don’t sleep on left side), I have a bit of a headache on and off, the noise sensitivity (right ear; high pitch noises in particular), brain zaps, ever so slight congestion in my ears (I only notice it when I swallow or yawn and my ears occasionally pop), and just an overall feeling of being unwell. Does this sound like Menieres, BPPV, or a vestibular migraine? I’m awaiting a referral to an ENT and a possible MRI depending on what my primary thinks. Thank you so much for reading all this- I know it’s a lot. I haven’t been this anxious since I lost part of my vision last year, I really feel for everyone with MD who has to battle this condition on a daily basis.
