Hi everyone, I’ve missed you all and I hope everyone is doing well!
I haven’t posted a lot because I haven’t had much good news to share and I try to limit gloomy content bc that’s not the kind of energy I want to put out into the world.
But I finally have good news.
This Tuesday, we found something that reduced my daughter’s dizziness and made her feel better.
She’s been dizzy nonstop 24/7 since March 28 2022, with no relief. On a scale of 1 – 10, she’s been rating the intensity as 6 – 8. It’s never dropped below a 6 in all this time.
She powers through it enough to go to school but she’s been very uncomfortable and she hasn’t played any sports at all. Her grades have been suffering. She’s been telling me that everything she does “is a struggle”. I’ve been worried about her becoming depressed because her personality has been changing and she is increasingly withdrawn.
We’ve been mostly focused recently on treating her eyes and her neck because we’ve been able to eliminate almost everything else as a cause of her dizziness.
On Monday, she had her first appointment with an upper cervical chiropractor. He x-rayed her neck. He found that the top of her neck is straight where it is supposed to be curved.
On Tuesday, she had her first neck alignment session with that chiropractor. Before she even got up from the table, she said she felt her dizziness drop to a 3!
For 205 days, she had no relief from this. On Tuesday, that all changed.
She had more neck alignment sessions on Wednesday and Thursday and she currently rates her dizziness as a 2.
We are so excited by this new development. We were starting to lose all hope. And now we have our hope back.
