Eight Weeks After BPPV Vertigo

Posted , 3 users are following.

Here is an update, I got BPPV Vertigo eight weeks ago, last week I got the result from NeroSensory to check my balance system, hearing...etc which includes hot, cold air(water) test and noise test. My ENT specialist said that I got a pair of perfect and health ears! My BPPV is settled.

Now what symptoms I still got: fatigue (not sleepy), sensitive to sound, anxiety and depression, taking Diazepam 2mg twice a day plus Mirtazapine 30 MG once a day.

    Jimmy, my BPPV has mostly settled too! I do not have the sensitivity you are describing though. I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis so I have plenty to be anxious about. I am still using the walker because of some dizziness and I cannot afford to fall. If I get overtired my vertigo reappears I have noticed. But overall it is great to have so much improvement. I am not taking any drugs for this as I have plenty of others I have to take.

      No matter if you take the tablets or not, you cannot drive anyway. The tablet will give you another kind of dizziness. It is hard to tell. I haven't taken Stemetil or Proc for a long time, it doesn't work for me. Is yours Serc?

      I think drowsiness is not something preventing you from driving. Dizziness is. Can you freely tilt your head up down left and right without experiencing Vertigo?

      A lot people like me went through the same or similar thing. Please don't panic and do best as you can to relax. Otherwise you will get anxiety and depression like me. Getting it to the bottom to find out if it is BPPV or other type of Vertigo. It is important. Sometimes you can do simple exercise to cure BPPV.

    It sounds like your BPPV is gone. Is that right? What do you mean by "sensitive to sound?" Also,: do you get migraines? If so, sound, smoke, perfumes and red wine are some of the triggers.

    The anxiety and depression can be a problem, although I was given a drug like diazepam to help me sleep, occasionally. I'm sure that's for the anxiety, but it's also a depressent. If the Mirtazapine is the same as meclazine, it's anti nausea. I took the latter and saw no relief from it.

    For anxiety, people often use atavan. For depression, drugs like Prozac, though it  can take 2 weeks for it to kick, and Wellbutrin, which works in days.
