As some of you know, I’m still waiting on my appointment with the Neurologist that the Neurotologist recommended, and as some of you also know, I’ve been very hesitant to bite the MAV bullet, but that doesn’t mean that I’m closing any doors on the possibility.
The last time I was here, I shared with you that I was radically changing my diet, going completely vegan, on a 70% plant based diet. Not only did I do that, but I’ve stuck to it. I’ve had a little organic sugar here and there, but aside form that, my diet has been very clean. I also came off coffee completely. It took a while, but I did it. Having said all that, I waited to post again because I had been seeing some improvement and really didn’t want to post until I was able to say I was 100% better.
For the last couple months, things have been a bit odd. I started feeling a little better, bit by bit, but the symptoms never left entirely. About a month and a half ago, I had a horrid week, with non-stop violent vertigo, and I thought that was it. I thought I was going to die, and that my life was officially over, but it slowly went away and only a random blipped shows up now and again. Since then, things continued to improve, and I actually had some days here and there in which my symptoms were so mild that I thought I was finally making the final turn towards recovery. Everything was going pretty well, and then out of nowhere, just last week, my symptoms started taking a turn for the worst. I’m not as bad as I was at my lowest, but I’m seeing symptoms again that I haven’t experienced for a couple/few months, and I’m starting to feel worse and worse. I’m afraid of sinking right back into horrible, agonizing symptoms.
I don’t understand this. Nothing happened that would account for an increase in symptoms, and now I’m devastated. It feels as though all the hope I was starting to finally feel has been robbed from me.
What does this mean? Have any of you experienced an improvement, followed by an increase in symptoms, followed by another improvement? Should I feel as hopeless as I do?
Thank you, everyone.
