  1. Hey Chris. Thank you for that. I do hope there is something, I feel I'm not myself but I can't make anyone understand how I'm feeling. It's so difficult to find the words to describe the feeling in my head, of I say dizzy they go to vertigo or migraine and I don't believe it is. I just don't feel me! I do want to say HUGE THANKS to everyone who has replied to me. This is the first group that I feel actually hears me.. Loving all of you right now x
  2. Hey Sarah, thanks for that..I think and I hope this doesn't sound bad but I want there to be something just so I can say to the three doctor's that have seen me, see I told you I wasn't lying or exaggerating which I feel they are thinking as they tell me to have faith in the pills or I've not had these long enough yet to try anything different.. So frustrating I can even begin..🤦 Anyway I'm hoping I can last till 29th without another episode.. Fingers crossed xx
  3. And I shall be hiding...I didn't get the pop this time but it still took me down for 20 mins.. I'm so worried about about my jobs babe you know that and I know, in fact I can hear you shouting, it's my health that comes first! I know, I know and ok I'll deserve my wrist slap! I'm sorry! X
  4. Hi. So out of the blue last week I got an appointment reminder from Queens telling not to forget my meeting with a specialist last Wednesday.. Totally gobsmacked I was but I went and I spoke to this doctor and he's agreed to give me an MRI and an MRA scan.. anyone had one of those? I've never heard of one (MRA) so on the 29th may at 7.30pm I'll hopefully be getting some answers. The doctor still isn't worried he tells me things change when you get older and if he sees nothing then that's it, he says that's life! I've just got to deal with it. Sunday, I had another.. Didn't hear a pop but it paralysed my head just like before. I couldn't move for nearly 20mins and when I did I crawled up stairs to bed. I really need to know what these things are and what's happening inside my head. Xx
  5. Hi.. Well I have had a scan but last November, not since I had my thunderclap migraine though. I'm now waiting for my MRI scan. I'm hoping there's nothing but kind of want there to be something so I don't feel so helpless and can put a name to what's been wrong with me! I'm not going to be ill but after nearly a year of being put to one side and given pills it would be good to say this is what the matter is and this is why I've felt so and this is the reason for the pain and dizziness and sickness.. Finally if have answers.. Thank you for your reply and I hope your daughter keeps well too.xx

  7. Hi all. My name is Kerry, my friend told me about this group and has been telling me to introduce myself, so here I am. I began with dizzy spells last year, docs thought it may have been my blood pressure and were keeping an eye on it. This went on for many months and eventually asked me to have a blood pressure machine on my arm for 24hrs. The second day I had it on at work and I had the most horrendous dizzy spell I've ever had and had to go into the office an be sat down..I was sweating, shaking, couldn't lift my head, couldn't talk, felt so sick and had to go home. Since then I've been in and out of the doctors for months until they finally sent me to Nottingham QMC as one doctor thought I had meningitis..I was terrified. The outcome was I have migraines! As these weeks/months have gone on the dizziness had increased and time off my jobs has. Never knew how bad migraines could be.. As it turns out I don't have migraines I have severe migraines that don't show any of the so called normal signs.. No lights, orbs, light doesn't effect me, I don't spend hours in a dark room. Nothing. Then in the month of Feb - an ordinary day, I'd done my 2 jobs, got the kids from school, gone to the gym, come home and was cooking tea when all of a sudden the biggest pop/bang went off in my head and by the time I'd shouted " what the hell" I was on the floor, paralysed ..my kids were crying my partner was in shock I think he just kept telling me not to move. 20mins later I lifted my head and crawled up to my bed and feel asleep. The following day I felt very fragile but walked to my first job but I began slurring my words and got confused to the point that the cook took me to the hospital. 11hours later and they said I'd had a thunderclap migraine and were keeping me in..until that is a specialist came to see me and said "no, it's just a migraine. Up your amitriptyline and go home" that was that! I've been banging my head on a wall since then trying to get someone to listen to me, because no one wrote down I'd had a thunderclap migraine. All I keep getting is its just a migraine, up your pills and go home. How the hell are you meant to function when I'm popping pills like skittles??? Work are more involved and made me go to occupational health where that doctor told me in no uncertain terms that if I have one of those thunderclap migraine again I could die.. His words not mine! He was amazed that i had not had another scan, that no one was talking me seriously! Then Sunday, I had a text on my phone saying here's your reminder for your hospital appointment for today!! So, I go thinking I'm going to be listened to this time. Someone is actually going to take in what I say...mmmm. The good news is that I'm getting my MRI scan, the bad news is he's not at all worried and he thinks it's all from me turning 47 and "this age you know, things can go wrong" his words not mine. He thinks I'm going through my change or my blood pressure is a cause or you know it's life and that's it!!☹️ I'm pleased I saw someone but left feeling like..it's just a migraine!!! feel really let down. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read about me xx
