I have been suffering with dizziness, cottonwool head and confusion for about 5 weeks now. I have had episodes of diziness before, the worst in 2010 and 2012 but they have never been bad for more than about four weeks.This time the dizziness is less sevre, but I have been confused, mixed up and transposing words. In the oast stemitil has worked, but not this time. I have also been on cinnarizine and benzodiazepine but niether have helped. In 2012 a consultant diagnosed migraine associated vertigo, but he said he was not convinced that's what it was because episodes are so long and the only readon he was diagnosing it was because all other options were coming up negative in the vestibular tests. I think this is probably as a result of a viral infection and it just drags on and on. If it is viral Labrynthitus, what else could help? exercises? I feel like it is probably not BPPV because positional vertigo is not my major issue (although it has been in past episodes). I have now been of wor 4 weeks and wlthough it has improved, its still not good. I am scared to go back to work in case by not resting, I just end up back at squre one. Do people find resting really inproves symptoms, or is it more a time issue? I work full time and have young kids, so need to get back to work, but also need to get better! Thanks
