Customer Question
life changed. i was really...
i am a 20 year old female. exactly 3 months ago today my life changed. i was really full so i did decide to try and relieve by vomiting (i dont do that much so no lecture please!) i never ended up acually vomiting though, just really really forceful dry heaving. anyways in the middle of heaving i got this spaced out feeling. its a hard feeling to explain. just spacey/out of it/drunk feeling ALL THE TIME 24/7. also my eyes feel heavy and tired and i get headaches which are in the upper back of my neck. i am literally scared to death. i have been to the ER 3 times and switched doctors a couple times because they just do not seem to care. i have had a spinal tap, cat scan and lots of blood work done, all normal. i tried to get a mri but none of the doctors will go for it. iv been to a neuro, acupuncturist, chiropractor, massage therapy and probably more. iv ordered vitimins and supplements I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO!!!! i KNOW something is wrong but noone seems to care or want to really help. anywayys some people do say it could be anxiety. at first i was like noway but now i dont know where else to turn. i just can not get out of my head or this all started, dry heaving. how could hard forceful heaving cause this? and can anxiety symptoms last this long ? i feel like doctors just put it on anxiety because they dont know what else it could be. everytime i explain my symptoms they just say "hmm thats strange, i dont know" like greaaatt thats comforting. do you have any idea what could be going on with me? could it be an inner ear problem? could i have injured something in my ear from dry heaving? my regular doctor has looked in my ear but i have not seen an acual ear doctor. any other things that it could possibly be? i really need answers.

What was the ct scan of? Any actual balance problems?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
they just did the cat scan because i came into the ER. im not sure why they did it exactly. the cat scan was done 3 days after this happened and showed nothing i guess
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago
I assume the neurologist did the spinal tap? What for?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
no they did the spinal tap at the ER when they did the cat scan and again i dont know why they do the stuff they do

OK--did the neurolgist have any comment, and have you had blood work to look for possible causes of this? Do you know what blood tests have been done?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
i only went to the neurolgist one time and she said i have nothing neurolgically wrong. i had alottt of blood work done and everything came back totally fine. i have a paper with all the blood work i got done on it but i dont have it at the moment
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago
your primary care doctor ran those tests and had no comment on what the possible causes were?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago
OK--I have some thoughts as to what may be going on and I can tell you what tests I would run, but that's about all I can do here since we aren't sure what's been tested for so far. Will that be sufficient?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
yeah. could it be an inner ear problem like could i have injured something in my ear while forcefully heaving?
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago
Just one other question--how long do the headaches last and how often do you get them?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
couple hours a day usually everyday
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago
OK--my thoughts--I'd get an MRI of the neck to check for disk problems that could be the cause here. I don't think this is an inner ear problem at all. That said, I would also screen you for autoimmune disorders, thyroid disorders, and cortisol abnormalities. Finally, I would consider variant migraines as a possibility and I would try you on either Imitrex or Zomig.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
