I'm new to the forum but unfortunately not to vestibular neuronitis. Symptoms started in February this year, woke up feeling like I was on a water bed and very dizzy when I got out of bed. GP diagnosed my symptoms but had to wait 6 weeks for referral to ENT (it might just go on its own I was told?). Went private to see ENT consultant who confirmed diagnosis. Have seen vestibular audiologist who suggested exercises which I have been doing since April and really thought I was getting somewhere, considering trying a phased return to work then out of the blue I had a full day of vertigo with severe spinning and vomiting with about a week of feeling awful. This made me nervous of going anywhere in case it happened again but after 5 weeks thought I was safe when it happened again. Both times it started early morning while in bed (as did original symptoms but without vomiting). At my latest audiologist appointment I was told I need to inform DVLA (have not driven since February) and that exercise is my only hope as damage to inner ear is permanent. This came as a shock but I think I was just being naive, and hopeful.
