Hi, I was diagnosed with PVF about 3 months ago following Labarynthitis. I realise PVF is probably slightly different to when you have been ill for over 6 months and diagnosed with CFS, however, both are categorised together on the NHS website. I have read on numerous websites that people with CFS & PVF are often alcohol intolerant and even the smallest amount can set people back significantly. I was just wondering if people have any personal experience of this? I have felt well enough, on occasion, in the last two weeks to have a glass of wine but I am too fearful of a setback to try. Thanks in advance!

My advice would be to stop it until you're very sure that you're well again, and I hop sincerely that you are soon.. :-)
Controversially, I feel better (at the time) for having a drink but feel the same amount of "hungover" with or without a drink, often worse without? A friend with cfs/me however felt much worse after drinking a glass of wine and occasionally has tried it to see how they feel after.
Someone else in this discussion says give it a little time to see about recovery first? And someone else states-see what works for you.
I have cfs/me and not pvf so we may differ,
I will add however that I have had recurring labyrinthitis in the past and that the balance and dizziness were seriously heightened and I stopped drinking then.
Hope that things settle for you soon.
