ARE YOU TIRED AS F_CK? _ You wake up at 7 A.M. rush to get dressed and get your butt to work, you’re so tired all you can think about is getting back on that couch after work. You struggle to focus on anything and the brain fog is real! By the end of the day you’re exhausted, hungry & BLOATED! 10 pm rolls around and you can’t fall asleep, and when you finally do you can’t stay asleep. All you do is lay there thinking about how exhausted you’re going to be the next day at work as you count down the hours of sleep you lose. The smallest things overwhelm you. You’re packing on the pounds and can’t figure out why, and your list of foods you are able to tolerate is shorter than ever. You can’t work out anymore because it drains the life out of you for days after. When you do work out you step on the scale the next day only to find out you gained weight. You feel frustrated and fed up with this cycle. _ That, my friend, is adrenal fatigue. Welcome to my past. _ If you have any of these symptoms you may have adrenal fatigue. _ ✔️Low thyroid ✔️Insomnia ✔️Weight gain✔️IBS/ Leaky gut✔️Exhaustion, but can’t sleep ✔️You get your best sleep in the A.M. and need to sleep in. 😖Inability to handle stress 🥺Dizzy when standing up too fast 😎Sensitive to bright lights 🤧Allergies/ you’ve developed new ones as well 😵Exercise makes you feel worse ✔️Low libido✔️Food cravings. Especially salt and sugar! 😨Startles easily 😷Reoccurring illnesses. _ 🔺you’ve had multiple stress factors in your life - birthing children, divorce, childhood trauma, stressful job, eating disorders and over exercising, abusive relationships etc. _ Do you know what I’m talking about? 🙋🏻♀️ _ #adrenalfatigue#adrenal#healthyeating#lowenergy#lowthyroid#hypothyroidism#hypothyroidismweightloss#hypoglycemia#lowbloodsugar#dizziness#cortisol#adrenalfatiguerecovery#lowlibido#stressedout#stressrelief
Today I managed to get up early, go for a walk, and do a small work out. I was with my kids and my little cousin @anita_bejarano_ and although I didn't say anything to them I felt horrible!! I felt extremely dizzy and I honestly didn't want to go But I pushed through it.. I feel extremely exhausted, very dizzy, and nauseous but I'm glad I had enough courage to do it.. vestibular dysfunction/migraine is no joke!! It's such a debilitating illness.. I'm not gonna lie, there are days when I want to just give up.. I have more bad days than good days but I'm determined to fight through this illness.. I've came across a lot of inspirational women on this platform that are going through the same thing and just reading their stories has inspired me to keep fighting!! Thank you for sharing your stories!! @chronicchicana @vestibular_warrior @dizzyblondemom @chronically.dizzy @vestibulaura #vestibulardisorder#vestibulardysfunction#vestibularawareness#vestibularmigraine#vestibularillness#dizziness#vertigo#offbalance#chronicillness#chronicillnessawareness#invisibleillness#invisibleillnessawareness
Today is #worldbrainday and I thought I would break from my normal routine to share about my experience with timolol ophthalmic solution as both a preventative and acute medication for migraine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Research has shown that even NSAIDS and combination analgesics like Excedrin Migraine can actually perpetuate the migraine cycle when taken more than 10-15x a month. (@migrainestrong has a great blog on rebound) Small studies show timolol eye drops are an effective acute treatment without the risk of rebound. So why hasn’t your doctor mentioned this medication? Find out in the post. 😉
A friendly reminder to us all. If you have a vestibular disorder, take the first step to gaining your life back. Remember that there will be ups and downs in your recovery, but three steps forward and two steps backward still amounts to forward progress!
. 🔻سرگیجه 🔻شاخه اصلی علامت: علائم هماهنگی و تعادل 🔻شرح علامت: سرگیجه احساسی است که در آن دنیا به دور سر بیمار می چرخد و اغلب با تهوع و استفراغ همراه است. این احساس شبیه به دریازدگی و یا مستی است. سرگیجه در اسکلروز متعدد همراه با از دست دادن نسبی یا کامل تعادل ( دهلیزی آتاکسی ) است که در حرکات سریع بیشتر بروز می کند. در موارد سرگیجه حاد فرد از دیگر حواس به خصوص بینایی ، لمس و حس عمقی (بازخورد موقعیتی از حسگرها در سراسر بدن) محروم است. سرگیجه علامت نسبتا شایعی در اسکلروز متعدد است و می تواند ناشی از صدمه به منطقه ساقه مغز که در آن عصب شنوایی جمجمه (CN VIII ) قرار دارد باشد. CN VIII به دو قسمت آکوستیک و تعادل (دهلیزی) گوش خدمت کرده، و بخش تعادل این عصب است که در سرگیجه دخیل است. سرگیجه همچنین می توانید از طریق ضایعات در مخچه ایجاد شود. اشکال دیگر سرگیجه ، که تحت دسته VERTIGO نبوده و اغلب در مبتلایان به مولتیپل اسکلروزیس دیده می شود، شامل اختلال عملکرد عضلات چشم و دلالت بر صدمه به اعصاب کرانیال III ، IV و VI است. برخی از داروهای مورد استفاده برای درمان علایم خاص از MS ، مانند باکلوفن و داروهای ضد افسردگی سه حلقه ای می تواند سرگیجه را تشدید نماید. سرگیجه غیر از مولتیپل اسکلروزیس ، از موارد دیگری نیز ناشی می شود. برخی از این
#lowlevellaser#lighttherapy (#LLLLT) to treat #tinnitus from #menieres disease. 🖍️📍📍 #chroniceardisorder#acupuncture Beatrice: Hi everyone I'm with #patriciamcnab and she's a fantastic #acupuncturist. She has a special tool here which is a #lowlevellaser#lighttherapy (#LLLLT). And the idea is that the red #laser goes into the #innerear, and it reduces #inflammation and reduces the symptoms of tinnitus. So I don't get this very regularly because I'm a bit slack, but it is quite beneficial if you're feeling like the tinnitus is getting a bit worse. Patricia: Now we'll just do some channels around the front of the #ear. Beatrice: Okay, this is some points. #acupressure points? Patricia: Acupuncture points. Beatrice: Acupuncture points. Patricia: Or pressure. Beatrice: Or pressure, yeah. So I don't think many acupuncturists are kitted out the way Patricia is, but you can always ask your local acupuncturist about it. Patricia: And it doesn't hurt. Beatrice: It doesn't hurt at all. Patricia: Now what we're doing here is stimulating the #lymphaticdrainage down the #neck. Beatrice: Oh okay. I need that. Patricia: Especially after a #cold. Beatrice: Yes, after the #virus. Yeah definitely. So it's all about maintenance. If you have #meniere's symptoms it's good just to stay on top of things, so you can kind of get out and participate in life. Isn't that right? Patricia: That's right. Beatrice: Do you have many other patients with #menieresdisease? Patricia: I do actually. Yes, yes. It's not that rare. And because it's so debilitating, it's you know, it's good to have some #auxiliarytherapy... Beatrice: Yep. Patricia: ... that can help, yep, good. Beatrice: Definitely. Okay just thought I'd share that with everybody if you haven't seen it before. It's different. Patricia: Pretty cool. Beatrice: Check it out. Thank you. Patricia: Great for little #children and big sooks. Beatrice: Yes it's easy for kids. #kids could do this for sure.
Today’s invisible illnesses are Chronic Migraine & Gastritis... and the information is from the lovely @migrainejourney 🖤 ........... The long story is on the 28th of August I suddenly got a headache and tummy ache.I was in and out with doctors until three weeks later I was sent to hospital.I stayed there for three days,the doctors were very dismissive and put it down to severe chronic migraine.Since then I was in another time with my head then November I went in with severe stomach pain, they thought it was my appendix but discovered it was gastritis.Fast forward to the 2nd of January I was very weak and pale/grey.I was then getting sick so I was rushed to the doctors and rushed out to hospital straight away and put on the emergency list to be seen.I was extremely weak and they were very worried so I was in there for 3 days.The doctor who was very dismissive before ran over to help me stand up and he didn't treat me that time.Ever since then I've been in and out of doctors.I have had x rays,ct scans and mri's.I have had the same migraine since the 28th of August.Its done multiple things including wrecking my sleep. 🖤 . . #sickbutinvisible#butyoudontlooksick#youlookfinetome#invisibledisability#maketheinvisiblevisible#notalldisabilitiescanbeseen
A few days ago I had an out-of-the-blue vestibular migraine attack. I felt 100% that morning. I even remember thinking how freaking fantastic I felt. I drank a cold brew coffee throughout the morning... definitely a jam-packed caffeine punch kind of morning. Maybe a mistake. I was flying high and then I felt sideways in a blink. I immediately grabbed water and went outside to show myself that I was ok and slowlyyy walked the street. I used my oils- basil + peppermint on my stomach and temples and took a zendocrine blend softgel (to support balanced blood sugar). I could see, I could walk... I kept telling myself that. I sat on the steps and ate a piece of #vegan pizza and drank a gingerale. The nausea was making a strong appearance. I just stared at the street sign reading the name to keep reassuring myself I was just fine... This story continues with me getting sick multiple times as my husband and boys drove me home and then me diving into bed. A few hours later I climbed out of bed and I was...actually fine. Exhausted + irritated, but I had come through the worst of the attack. I was relieved and grateful to be back. I did a @kait.hurley workout as my oldest reminded me, “mommy, go do your yoga so you feel better”. I then grabbed dinner with my boys trying to pieces together the why. Too much coffee, blood sugar dip... I don’t know. I experienced no pain this round until 24 hours later. Just that awful sideways feeling, eyes not wanting to focus and hating the lights, and intense nausea. I had planned to run that morning but slept in instead and part of me wonders if I had gotten in my run if it would have happened. The day after felt like a bad hangover. And the day after that I felt more alive and happy, but a bit shook. Lots of water, clean eating, yoga, playgrounds with my boys...and trying out these blue light blocking glasses. This attack has pushed me to further explore holistic wellness approaches which I’ll be sure to
In this selfie, I’m in extreme pain. My head has been hurting for days, I’m nauseous, my ears feel muffled, I’m extremely dizzy. My eyes are sensitive to light,I’m feeling so much but have a bland stare in my face. I want to be out having fun enjoying my youth or working out (I’m suppose to be studying for my NASM to become a certified personal trainer ) I’m hoping to try a new medication this week for vestibular migraines. I’m complaining but I’m also trying to share hope for anyone going through chronic illness mental or physical or both. I’ll keep y’all updated. #vestibularmigraine#pppd#chronicillness#mirgaines#dizziness#life#vestibulardisorder#depersonalization#mentalillness#anxiety
