Do you drink diet sodas or chew sugar-free gum?
If so – you might be allergic to Aspartame (NutraSweet) or other sugar-substitutes.
I’m allergic to Nutrasweet. I discovered it in high school. After drinking a diet soda or chewing gum with Nutrasweet, I’d get bad migraine headaches. I had a friend in college that the stuff made him vomit violently.
Google Aspartmate side-effects, or just cut the stuff out for awhile and see if your headaches and dizziness clear up.
Of course, if you don’t consume Nutrasweet… disregard this
Carrie, I know how the unknown can be so unnerving, but at least some big ailments have been eliminated. Hopefully, it is something simple that will be discovered soon and easily rectified. Maybe a nerve is being pressed? Have you seen a chiropractor or physical therapist?
Possibly could be migraines. I get dizzy icky with them. I would agree with the above posters mentioning diet soda and such and go a step further to say keep a food journal of everything you put in your mouth…it could be chocolate or caffeine or something *hugs*
It’s not rebound side effects from your migraine medication is it? Although I’m sure if your doctor is testing your for brain bleed, that’s occurred to him too. Gah. Well good to have some bad stuff ruled out but it would be nice to get a diagnosis. Where’s Gregory House when we need him?
