Hi everyone, I have my first GP visit tomorrow since my formal diagnosis. I’m trying to think of how to explain to her all that has happened since I last saw her a year ago. Goodness, so much has changed! I saw her in July of last year (7 months into MAV). At that time, she was still of the opinion I had BPPV and my formal MAV diagnosis came in December from a specialist.
I’m trying to think ahead and help prepare myself and her (if needed) about MAV. We won’t have enough time together for me to tell her all the ugly details (and recent successes) of the past year. Is there a “cliff notes version” of MAV that is not overly heavy reading, but not the generic “oh it’s a migraine and it makes you dizzy”… a good, concise and definitive overview to hand her? @Onandon03 Helen, seems like you had linked a good one from the NHS along the way, I just cannot find it.
I don’t want to overwhelm her with too much, nor make her feel like I’m “schooling” her since I now know this MAV business is so elusive.
Thanks for your input everyone!
