I’m having a really bad day spinning wise today. It’s going at 100mph and I can’t do anything without overwhelming anxiety. All I can feel is the spinning no matter how much I distract myself. I can usually cope with the dizziness and distract myself from it, but day’s like this it’s so fast and overwhelming I just can’t cope. I can’t speak to anyone, I can’t watch or listen to anything, all I can feel is the spinning. I am seriously considering taking diazepam as my quality of life at the moment is just awful. I am bed bound. I haven’t taken a benzo before, do they dampen the spinning slightly? I for sure won’t be using benzo’s as a long term fix, but on days like this I feel that I need something to help. I was going to start my amitriptyline tonight, but I am worried because my symptoms are so bad. Maybe I should hold off?
I have 2mg of diazepam that I could try.
