Hi all, I will try to be short. 8 months ago I got struck by typical syndroms of Vestibular Neuritis (I didnt know then what it was and never heard of it so I panicked a bit). Typical smyptoms (dizzines, lightheaded, sleepy, wanted to vomit, problems in abdominal part etc). Only first day I experienced 2 short and strong vertigos. First few weeks were like hell as you all can imagine (some of you also get through this). On top of that I was going on summer holiday in that state as I didnt want to spoil the vacation for my kids and wife. Hell on earth tbh. Only after 4 months I "fully recovered" (smyptoms were weaker, gradually as time passed away). Last few months the situation is much much better, I still have (from time to time, let say every 2 or 3 weeks) vsymptoms but that is in really small "doses". Almost that I barely feel that...
What is VERY IMPORTANT to know for all the NEW PATIENTS. This thing is not a super serious illness. You wont die from it. It WONT last forever in 95% of cases (note: the older you got struck the less chance there is). So all you need is to prevail and to be strong (mostly in your head since the illness is influencing our brain, our mental state). The center of it is an inflamed inner ear which is responsible for our cener of gravity..this is why the symptoms are awful....So dont worry you will be getting better. Worst part for me is that my doctor told me the smymptoms usually last not longer than few weeks which ofcourse isnt true at all. For most ppl it can last much longer. This I learned on the net reading articles from doctors who are experts in VN.
If you want you can tell me your experience, ofcourse..
All the best and hold on..
