I’ve been dizzy for almost nine months now and was only officially diagnosed with Vm earlier this month.
I started the Dr S 6 C’s diet shortly after and am making the suggested lifestyle changes - but it’s hard. I’m not really seeing any positive changes yet but I understand you need to give it 2-3 months.
Unfortunately, time is a luxury I no longer have. By the end of this year I will have taken almost 100 days off sick. I am conscious that my job is increasingly at risk. Also, due to my sickness record over the last three years, I will soon go down to half pay.
I intend to ask my Gp to start me on medication early as I cannot wait until February. Is there one which is particularly fast acting or is it pretty much a lottery as to what will work? I have very restless legs so I think this means I need to avoid ami and possibly other tricyclics.
I would like to give diet and lifestyle more of a chance but feel I have little choice. Plus, I’ve been dizzy now for nearly 9 months, so I would do anything to experience some relief.
