Sorry you've had a hard time lately. I have had a pretty bad last couple of years and am just now at a place where I can emotionally concentrate on myself. Don't get too down about gaining. I've lost and gained back the same 15 pounds for the past year! Makes me so mad at myself. But not giving up is the key, right? We can help each other not give up and keep looking at the big picture.
I got vertigo about 2 weeks after I started wearing the progressive lenses. Have you noticed that it started about the same time with the vertigo and the progressives? The vertigo did go away when I went back to my single glasses. I just wear two sets of glasses. The thing though as once vertigo is triggered, it never truly goes away. If I'm over tired, the vertigo will come back, although not as bad as it was. Plus, I'm prone more now to dizzy spells since the vertigo. The eye Dr said I probably can't even wear lined bifocals because of the severe reaction to the progressives. I'm not sure I'd I even want to try it was so bad! Let me know how it goes for you and what you think is the cause. Mine was the progressives for sure.
We do have lots in common! May God bless you richly, Trina 9 days ago
