I’m mixed up as to who is talking to whom here in this thread, it is like I was before my new hearing aids, HA HA!
Anyway, I have had vestibular exercises to do daily which helped. Some days are worse than others.
They finally had put me on small doses of meds for the dizziness, I don’t want to mention them here. I can say I tried Meclizine and it made me so tired all the time that I ended up getting off of that. The two meds I am on now are working for the dizziness, most of the time.
I did have all kinds of tests for both ears, electrodes over my eyes, warm water flushing in each ear to see the stygmus, or whatever they were looking for. I don’t really know if they ever determined it to be one side or the other or both sides. I was completely fine until one day in Dec, 1997 when I woke up, my world was spinning so badly I could not get out of bed. I had to crawl to the bathroom with my head tilted a certain way so I could vomit. I called my physician and told him there is no way I can even navagate stairs let alone get into a car!
An ambulance came and took me to the hospital.
It took about three weeks until I could drive again, I was so dizzy. Then the dizziness would get worse, some days, just making me want to go back to bed!
Although it has subsided with the meds, it really is never really ever GONE. I still have certain days that are worse than others! I’ve tried to connect it with weather, what I eat, other meds, etc, and cannot find any connection with anything at all!
