I started getting daily nausea (like a sinus infection in my head not in my stomach) and periodic severe vertigo/dizzy spells about 1 month after I had PRK eye surgery. I was told it was not related to the surgery by the surgeon. I had lasik in 00 and then my eyes started deteriorating but I had too thin of cornea so had to have PRK the 2nd time (06). It didn't work and I still have my eyes changing all the time and cannot keep glasses or contacts - they are always either too strong or too weak it seems to go back and forth. That is why I think the eye issue may be related...?
I have been for the past 2 1/2 years through a multitude of tests. ENT dr says all clear, had MRIs and CAT scans, and all balance/inner ear tests. Also had full allergy workup on environment factors - all clear. All normal they say. Had blood workup by primary care dr - all clear. Sent me to a neurologist and they say I have migraine variants/atypical migraines. Been treated for the past 9 months with various migraine meds of which none have helped. I think it may not be migraine, because I have daily issues feeling nauseated (head only - no vomiting can eat just fine.) Also when I try working out (which is what i used to do a lot of) I can only do about 15 minutes before being overwhelmed by nausea/slight dizzyness. Then I get every few months a huge spell of vertigo that leaves me bedridden it is so bad. I will be in bed from 3 days to 2 weeks. Been on about 10 different meds for the vertigo - did nothing or very little. I have no other symptoms and have also seen a chiropractor to help with my stress and headaches.
Any ideas??? I feel yucky every day and cannot do things I used to. I would be SO grateful for some ideas on what to check out next because this has really reduced my quality of life.
