Hello! So I'm 19 years old and it is my first time writing in this group. In August I had my first vertigo attack when moving to Germany on my own. It lasted 3 weeks and doctors didn't find anything. I was fine until January 2018 when again I started to get dizzy and experienced auras which triggered panick attacks. Since then the dizziness was constant and I was told it was all anxiety. I came back to my home to get a proper diagnosis since doctors in Germany weren't helping, because I took anti anxiety meds and they calmed panick attacks but not the dizziness. Finally I went to a psychiatrist and a neurologist. I have both Panic Disorder and yesterday I got diagnosed Vestibular Migraine. I'm taking Paxil to treat the anxiety which the doctor says might help also migraines, and now I got prescribed Flunarizine 5mg as well as other tablets that are just for 3 days. I'm relieved that I finally have an answer, but at the same time scared. Sometimes google can be the worse enemy because there are all bad stories out there. I just wanted to know is it possible to recover from this dizziness? Does it get better? I don't want it to ruin my opportunities in life, I love to travel, I love to workout, and I don't want this to ruin it. So far I can still workout and everything, I haven't lost my balance but I just wanted some answers.
