I am so happy to have found this forum.
I am a 31yo male living in France and have been suffering with VM for 12 years ON and OFF (had many years symptoms free) but found out about VM only few weeks ago.
My first bout of VM was when I was 19. My GP told me it was stress and anxiety. It resolved on its own and let a happy life for 4 years when VM hit me back with a vengeance. Once again Doctors said it was only Anxiety. Took me a solid 2 years to feel back to normal again.
And now I’m in a 7 months VM episode. But this time I have been diagnosed with VM by both an ENT and a Neurologist. Needless to say that doctors in France are totaly clueless and misinformed regarding VM.
It feels very “weird” to look back on 12 years of your life and realize that your problem wasn’t psychological after all.
I am so glad to have found a website like this one where I can read people stories and relate.
Thanks a lot for accepting me among this community.
