ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I began getting strange sensations of being off balance around two months postpartum. One day, I woke up with dizziness, halos around lights, internal vibrations, burning in my face and none of if has gone away for one minute.
I immediately visited my PCP, who eventually referred me to an ENT. The ENT referred me to a dizziness clinic. The clinic ran 3 hours of testing a suggested 8 weeks of vestibular therapy for vestibular migraines. However, after 8 weeks and multiple migraine medications, all the symptoms remained. I continued with another ENT, a neurologist, and multiple chiropractors to no avail. I have had a brain MRI and MRA. Doctors continue to brush me off and blame postpartum hormones or anxiety. I can barely care for my little girl and have missed so many important times in her young life. I feel like I am not being taken seriously because I just had a baby, but that is the reason I desperately need help.
