I got pregnant last summer with my first baby and immediately, even before a test, could pick it up. I felt like I was foggy, walking on a boat, along with noise and light sensitivity. I was highly anxious. They even gave me a cat scan and then chalked it up to hormones and anxiety.
Mid pregnancy, closer to end of second, it went away and I chalked it up to Drs. being right it was just pregnancy. Felt amazing rest of pregnancy and first 6 weeks. Then the same things came back. I was told it’s just hormones and anxiety again. I stopped breastfeeding which kills me because I was told it would help my hormones. Well it didn’t help and he’s now 7 months. I went to ent and they are pretty sure it’s vestibular migraines but I have to get some vestibular testing done and hearing test to make sure.
I started magnesium and b2 and migraine diet yesterday. Also have been working with a naturopathic dr. who wants me to also try some progesterone cream as I had read people having luck with that. I do that testing in a few weeks for my vestibular system but they were pretty sure this is what was going on. My Vit D was a 46 in May and now it’s a 35 so I started taking 4000 iu a day again.. I joined the vestibular migraine support online and had to leave because it was horror story after horror story and I am already scared of never getting relief.
Last month my first pp period came and I felt an improvement in some symptoms for one week, then the next week I felt normal finally! Had my life back it felt like. Then I got my period and on day 4 of my period when things lightened up everything came back. The all familiar 24/7 vertigo feeling. My nd felt ovulation and progesterone helped me somehow.
This month I anxiously awaited to see the same pattern but it never came. I took ovulation tests twice a day all month. I got 3 positives 3 days in a row on cycle days 30-33 and then got my period only 2 days after that so I question if it was anovulatory?
My nd has to order more natural progesterone cream. She recommended 1/4 teaspoon a day. Is that enough? Does this sound like I might benefit from this? I want my life back and to enjoy my little one again instead of living in this 24/7 dizzy off balance.
