Mog the Dog, I have been having constant vertigo for years. I have spent tons of time reading about it and going to doctors including neurotologists. I am going to do some reading on platelet vertigo. I did read somewhere that an aspirin a day might help and have tried that along with about 100 different things. I do have factor V Leiden, so maybe the antiplatelet therapy will help me. I will definitely give it a try. What medicine are you taking? I also have been having strange vision problems where my prescription changes weekly and I have pain pretty much all over but both of these could be from EDS. Also, I have a PICC line and now that I have an infection and have to take antibiotics twice a day it keeps clotting off even though I flush it with heparin. The nurse does not understand why it keeps happening. My blood work has been off too with worsening neutropenia and anemia along with a lot of other things, but I had a normal bone marrow biopsy.
My MTHFR genes were both normal and I have the POTS, EDS and MCAD. There were some other ones that were off like the COMT genes where I was homozygous on a couple of these and they have to do with how you process catecholamines and my levels were over 2000, so I wasn’t surprised to have abnormal genes here, especially since several people in my family have hyperadrenergic dysautonomia.
I am going to go take another baby aspirin just in case it helps my vestibular problems. As much as I have been lying around lately and with the factor V and family history of blood clots,, I should probably be taking an antiplatelet drug anyway.
