What the hell is going on!
I am a 30 year old female, non smoker or drinker, good weight and regular exerciser. I have Coeliac Disease, diagnosed 10 years ago and managed with a GF diet. I get pretty much every cold and flu going around town but other than that I’m good.
So the past year I honestly see such a deterioration in my cognitive ability. I get headaches often, migraines also, but I have always managed them with anti-inflamms. I now get much worse headaches, that last for ages (last one lasted 10 days). I feel dizzy, vertigo almost always, struggle to get words out and hold conversations, my eyes are so affected by any light, fluros sun etc, (I wear glasses for reading) I feel nauseas all the time, my heart races and pounds just by standing up, always so god dam tired, and I am now incredibly vague and super forgetful. Been in ED twice this past week with headache, nothing on blood tests or MRI, am I going mad? I feel like my brain is turning to mush...

If the MRI was normal then central cause of vertigo is unlikely.Based on your description, ENT examination, assessment for menierres disease / BPPV (Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) and ophthalmology examination is required to determine the cause for the recent exacerbation of symptoms. Prior to this a neurological exam should be done to determine any focal neurological deficit. Drug history should also be taken to see if its an external agent that is responsible for the effects that you are experiencing.
