Hey everyone! I am new here :)
I am an 18 year old female. I am ALWAYS lightheaded and have been like this for almost 2 months already. It is constant. From the moment I wake up until I go to bed. My life has completely been affected by this. I can't drive anymore and I am always scared to be alone because I worry that I might pass out any second. I also have brain fog, It's hard for me to concentrate and I feel pretty slow. :confused: It all started when I was getting swooshing noises in my left ear that went along with the rhythm of my heart/ my pulse. It's so annoying. :mad: I went to my doctor who took blood out to see what was going on. 2 days later was my first visit to the ER. I got the worst dizzy spell ever, I felt like everything was spinning and I felt that I was going to die! I panicked ofcourse! This was 2 months ago.
I'm not anemic or have thyroid problems, my blood test was good and didn't show anything but high cholesterol (which I am taking care of).
My blood pressure WAS always fine until for the past couple of days it's been high. I am also getting heart flutters...I think it is because I am so stressed out. I don't know what is wrong, I can't take it anymore it is very very frustrating:(
I've had MRI's with and without contrast of my brain, CT scan of my brain, Carotid Ultrasound.
I am currently on Effexor for my anxiety and taking Crestor for my cholesterol.
This has made a big impact on my life, I am too young to feel like I am going to die soon but this lightheadedness is driving me crazy, I just wish that I could get some magic pill that would make me feel normal again! I miss how my life was!
