Without know the particulars of your situation I can't say for sure but here's my account:

I had vertigo that was caused by Bell's Palsey and Vastibular Neuritis in November 2007. The effects of the vertigo were most prevalent in the first 8 weeks. I began taking Serc which is an anti-vertigo agent commonly used in cases of Meiner's Disease. I found that this really helped to nullify the effects. I was able to reduce the dosage to a point that I have only had to take 1/2 pill in the last 2 months as I was feeling just a little "off."

Re: does vertigo last forever

no. "vertigo", the sensation that the room or world is in a full spin, does not last forever. The brain DOES compensate, and that sensation DOES go away. What CAN last forever, unfortunately, is the feelings of "imbalance", "dizziness", "disequilibrium", associated with conditions such as chronic migraine and neurological conditions. But fortunately, even the worst of these can be controlled with meds as well. Most people get better

No. Everybody gets better in the end, but everyone has a different journey to 100%.

I've been 100% before, so will you.

I like Dizzyrascal's answer better. I was in a bad mood when I wrote mine!
