As the title states, just wanting to be clarrified but this one question which keeps boggling me.
I'm a vestibular disorder sufferer, currently coming into 5 months of it. I'm still clinically undiagnosed but I've been told that it's possibly Migraine Associated Vertigo. Now I'm in a group on Facebook which has thousands of members on it which is for people suffering vestibular disorders whether it's Labyrinthitis, Vestibular Neuritis or MAV. But what keeps confusing me is so many people state they're "recovered" from their Vestibular Neuritis or Labyrinithitis yet they still post stuff saying they've had to learn to live with it.
So from my understanding from which I've read online about these disorders is.
1. It's a disorder, which means it's most likely never going to fully go away.
2. Once you're over 3.5 months of constant dizziness and other symptoms you're classified as a chronic patient, and most likely you've got damage done to your nerve in which your brain hasn't compensated like normal people would, and because there is damage done your balance nerve is permanently damage and won't ever fully go back to 100%.
So again, can anybody who has some experience in this area please clarify to me that once you've got damage done to your nerve, and once you're 4-5+ months into it you won't ever fully recover 100% will you? You'll always have some sort of dysfunction to your balance and disequilibrium correct?
Obviously I know MAV is a permenant neurological illness since it's migraine related and migraines can't be cured, but I'm more interested in knowing about VN or Labs since I'm still not convinced I have MAV.
