Back in early September I came down with what appeared to be a cold/flu.
My symptoms were fatigue and dizziness and just felt all around weak & sick.
Went to my general Dr and he prescribed Augmentin for 10 days and after several days a Z-pak as well as the Augmentin which both didnít seem to be effective.
After those medications had no effect he order a sinus X-Ray which came back clear then sent me to an ENT who diagnosed it as an inner ear infection, vestibular. The ENT prescribed a 6 day prednisone taper and Lorezapam.
My symptoms seemed to improve fairly well on the prednisone but then they came back about a week or 2 later. It was a sudden onset.
I went back to the ENT and he didnít think another round of prednisone would help and said to try prozac to calm in inner ear nerve & meclizine. Also, ordered a CT scan of the sinus which came back clear. He said if symptoms didnít improve to see a neurologist.
Symptoms didnít improve so I went to the neuro who questioned the Prozac (as well as myself) The Neuro did an initial exam and couldnít find anything and advised to seek a 2nd opinion from another ENT.
In the mean time the neurologist ordered blood work, chest X-Ray and an MRI & MRA w & w/o contrast brain scan which all came back clear.
Went to another ENT for a 2nd opinion who viewed the CT scan and said he thought it was Neurological as a possible A-Typical migraine or Allergies,
I seen an allergist who ruled out anything allergy related.
Back to the Neuro and she didnít think it was migraine related because the dizziness is constant, but prescribed a migraine medication to see if any improvement. Took it for one day and woke up feeling horrible/worse so I stopped it.
In early Nov I tried another round of prednisone but this time for 10 days rather than 6 at a higher dose of 5mg. That seemed to have worked temp but now I feel the dizziness coming back, however not as bad but itís still very apparent.
Also, I have seen a cardiologist who did a stress test EKG, Tilt table and heart sonogram which all came back fine.
What tends to make the dizziness/fatigue worse is working out or anything that involves concentrating or problem solving. My ears/sinus currently feels pressured.
The meds I have been on and tried are:
Agumention, lorezapam, meclizine, prozac, z-pak, prednisone, musinex d. allergra d, omaris, ambien, fluticasone prop, amtriptyline hcl, qvar 80 mcg administered in the nose as well as a sinus saline bottle blaster thing 2x/day.
Drís that I have seen are:
Internist (my general MD), Neuro, 2 ENTís, Allergist, & Cardiologist.
Ĺ cc test cyp/week and have for yrs, kolonopin, Omnaris, doxy, multivitamin(recently started aprox month ago), 50mg of Zinc/day & sinus saline bottle blaster thing 2x/day.
Also, Iíve had no changes in diet.
Iím at a total loss here and think I have run out of Drís, anyone have any ideas as to what this could be or somewhere I could go or post this that deals with complex/difficult cases?
