Vestibular Migraines

Posted , 2 users are following.

HI all! its been a while since i shared here. Basically after my diagnosis with VM in October 2017 i have been on the usual medication (Betahistine 16mg, Amytriptalin 10mg and occasionaly i will have Procholperazine). I followed the list the ENT gave me and started to make some changes to my diet and lifestyle (low sodium, less stress absolutely no chocolate of any type and less caffeine). i also discovered that sugar will trigger vertigo, so i try my best to stay away from it. after all these changes i started to see the light at end of the tunnel and in end of December- beginning of January i had my last serious episode. i still had bad days, but they were nothing compared to a full episode, so i tried to maintain positivity through it all. from November 2018 all started going down hill, so i think this illness does not get along well with winter, plus i had to deal with two family emergencies which caused me stress (my biggest trigger). am hoping that in the next few months, i will once again go back to being well again.
