Hi, I had acute vertigo with projectile vomiting and nystegmus over 4 years ago. I spent the night in the hospital where they did tests. Said I had fluid in my inner ear from a flu two weeks earlier that irritated the vestibular nerve. Went thru a horrible seven months of walking like I was drunk, couldn't eat because of the constant nausea, fatigue, couldn't really do anything. Went to lots of vestibular rehab and pt. My daughter was in her third year of high school then. I feel like I lost out on so much. Most of her last year in hs, she cooked and got rides to and from school and her sports. I was off work for 7 months. Couldn't drive. Went back to work and has trouble not falling for the next year. This affected me for about 3 years+ I developed intense tinnitus 2 yrs ago, it's settled somewhat. I only fell off balance sometimes now. But I just feel like I lost out on so much because of this... Anyone else feel that way?
