Relapse after period on no meds

Who here has had relapse after no meds? What’s your experience?

I had a relapse about 2-3 years after complete vestibular recovery (during which I did not take meds) brought on by manipulation of my jaw muscles by my dentist.

It gave me BPPV like symptoms for a couple of days followed by neurological fallout. I recovered fully back to baseline after about a month or two without returning to medication (Amitriptyline isn’t too bad but I really didn’t want the slow bowel again or the “dull brain” feeling)

(Btw there are not many people who post on this site after recovery and most people are on meds in any case so there may not be many respondents)
