Pretty much 100% all of the time.....

Hi All

Its been AGES since Ive been on this board.

It really helped me when I was very dizzy, and I promised myself when I recovered I would post and let everyone know....

So I got this in August 2005 and it has taken almost 2 years to completely go.I started taking Pitozifen in sept 06 and that made a MASSIVE difference to my dizziness. I am now coming of it gradually (its puts on a lot of weight).

I was diagnosed with VN/MAV complication and until sept 06 had only very slight improvements.My life was a nightmare and I hated it, but everyone always told me I would beat and I became determined to overcome it.

Its true what they say - find a doctor that understands you- it helps massively.

Also the positive, active and determined always get better quicker - a lot of it is in your state of mind- stay positive whatever!

My dizzy journey was horrific - I am feelingl really good pretty mch all of the time now, with a few blips here and there- but hey Im not going to complain!

THIS DOES GO EVENTUALLY FOR EVERYONE - STAY THE COURSE!

Good luck!

DizzyRascal

Re: Pretty much 100% all of the time.....

Hey Dizzy, good to see you back and thanks for sharing your story! You are right it is important to remain positive but its really hard sometimes when this rubbish doesn't go away! It's always good to see folks coming back here and saying they got well, gives hope! This is my fourth year and I'm hoping to beat this thing. Mine was peripheral VN and they cannot understand why its not going, neither can I! The quality of my life would be so much improved if I can just get this thing gone! Anyway just wanted to say hi and thanks! Hope you keep 100%x
