Feeling Dizzy And Body Like Floating?
Morning, I’m Nadia 16 years old. For more than a year back I often had vertigo, dizziness, and felt like floating, which made me unable to focus. In addition, my vision is often blurry and dark when I stand up from sitting. My lower back or spine often aches when I sit and still feels when I lie down. When examined the results of a normal CT scan and given a diagnosis of chronic cephalgia and given drugs. But these drugs do not ease the pain. What should I do and do I have to continue taking these drugs?
Good morning Nadia, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. For starters, it is important to understand that with so many symptoms you experience, it is likely that the condition you are experiencing occurs in more than one type, even if they occur simultaneously or close together. Possible diseases include:
Low blood pressure
Low blood sugar levels
And there are also many other possibilities such as pain when sitting, it could be because the seats are uncomfortable, you sit too long and such. The best step is to see a doctor, and so far your decision is right. As for complaints that do not improve despite taking the drug, you should go back to the same doctor to evaluate and control the condition, because indeed some diseases can not be detected and cured with just one check.
Therefore, if the previous treatment by a doctor has not been successful, you should go back to the same doctor to ask why. Your doctor will then assess your progress from the previous meeting and determine whether the medication should be continued, plus the type, plus the dosage, replaced, or refer you to another doctor who is more appropriate. You may seek a second opinion from another doctor, who in this case is a neurologist. In essence, the inspection must be carried out before handling is given.
Meanwhile, get enough rest, avoid cigarettes and stress, increase consumption of meat, vegetables and fruit, exercise regularly, consume enough water, identify triggers for your headaches, do not stay up late and immediately check yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
