Hello, I am a long time reader and first time poster. I wanted to introduce myself.
I have been dealing with what mostly seems like MAV for 14 years. I am dizzy with head pressure 24/7. I had a downturn a few years ago and got on Klonopin which helped for a while but now does not seem to do anything. I started Nort about 3 weeks ago still at 10mg with no change. I think I will try upping to 20mg tonight.
Anyway, I feel like I have just continued to get worse over the last 14 years. I see a lot of people here that go up and down. Mine is on a steady decline to where lately some days I am bedbound and contemplating suicide. Which I get really mad at myself for, because I have a wife and two kids, one of who is severely autistic.
I guess the point of this post is to introduce myself but also ask if people ever get better after such a long time. Also, how long does Nort usually take to see a difference? I have tried Ami years ago and it did not seem to do anything, but now that I think of it I was in a much better place then. Not sure if it was the meds or not. That is why I decided to try Nort. I also have tinnitus so I am deathly afraid of new meds making it worse. I got mine from ototoxicicity of quinine (I believe).
Anyway, good to be here. I am just feeling VERY depressed from this spike. It happened about 3 months ago and only seems to be getting worse
