So migraine associated vertigo or some other vertigo? Still in the vertigo vortex

So still have vertigo from Sept. 30th. It is going with this pattern that is so unlike my migraine associated vertigo I am beginning to wonder if it is in fact from that. Which concerns me.

When I get up in the morning it is barely noticeable. I feel unstable a bit. My eyes don't track so well.

Then the more I move around it gets worse. Specifically if I am standing or walking around it will get worse Fast. So very little standing or walking. But it is quite noticeable sitting upright.

Yet when I lie down it is far more stable again after a few minutes. I just feel a lot of tingling in my legs a few pulsing and maybe a little slight dropping sensations. A more wooshing movement of dropping and lack of tracking if I move my head at an angle or too fast but otherwise not too bad.

I notice when i try to do activities like crouch down, bend over or... when i attempted to clean the bathtub... worse, much worse. But again just standing makes it worse.

It got real today and all I did was about an extra hour of standing and sitting movements while visiting family... but not only was it quite a bit worse but when I got up to leave I had trouble walking to the truck.

And... repeat every day. The same. No variation. No different types of vertigo on there. Same thing over and over. No breaks in it, unless I lie down and decrease it for a bit. And that isn't normal that lying down would make it better than standing up would then make it get worse and worse. Generally I get lots of vertigo that lying down does not change it at all.

But you do see the problem here. I can't seem to stand or walk around very much At All, and sitting doesn't help at all. And I can't do anything with it that doesn't make it much worse. And... I can lie around all the time!

I have to make a doctors appointment for a prescription and I will go for this too. But that won't be soon. And i wonder if I should see someone sooner or not.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
