I am 19, and usually a very healthy girl. The past 6 months my life has been turned upside down. I started feeling like I was going to pass out through out the entire day every day. I didnt leave the house or the couch for weeks. I would visit the doctor and get wheeled in in a wheel chair because I was so dizzy I couldnt stand. In the beginning of the summer I played on a soccer league and was totally fine then one day its like a switch turned on and I havnt been able to do anything since. I wake up everyday not knowing how I will feel. One day I will feel ok enough to walk outside and then the next I barely can make it to the bathroom alone. I am on proamatine and florineff, I tried the extra salt and increased liquid, all the salt did was irritate the ulcer I have and make me even more sick. The other medication has helped some, but not enough to have a normal life. The doctor said, "well some people just deal with it and get used to it", Im sorry but I refuse to just get used to living on my couch at 19. There has to be a remedy for this condition. I am desperatly trying to get back to college that I had to take a year off of. It has gotten to the point where I am afraid to go out anywhere, and my mind just takes over now, I dont know if I should try a anxiety med. or somthing. If ANY ONE knows anything that helped them get through this or over it PLEASE let me know. All I want is to be a normal kid again.
