went to the ER on December 2nd. No spinning or nausea. Just extreme wobbly and I cannot stand up straight and everything felt extreme if i moved my head. That night, they gave me valium in er to calm me down and did a MRI to rule out strokes , head injuries etc. I was feeling alittle better a few hours later in the ER so I went home.
Then on December 12th, same symptoms. Went in ER the doctor injected dexamethasone. It worked within 15 minutes and I left ER after an hour with a 5 day prescription.
Later that week I saw an audiologist and neurologist and was diagnosed w vestibular neurtis.
It's been over 3 weeks now. I still feel wobbly, not good enough to return to work. They may go ahead and fire me. Fml. The dexamethasone seems to reduce it 50%, meaning I can make it to the bathroom without slowly crawling or days I drive uber when I'm feeling ok enough. But even that's risky.
Was reading an article in the Cleveland clinic, it said generally severe symptoms last 3 weeks ??
