    Wink Unilateral Vestibular and diving

    Hello, I had pretty bad dizziness and brain fog for about two months
    and after seeing a therapist, I was diagnosed with
    Unilateral Vestibular Hypofunction "Weakness" - I will consider myself
    "lucky" as now I'm about 90% better and don't feel the way I used to feel. The only minor complaint I would say now is that I get a bit dizzy when doing computer work and I move my eyes or head rapidly from one place to another but the dizziness usually goes away after a while. I am currently doing exercises as instructed by my therapist.

    One of my loves is Scuba Diving, so the big question is..... does anyone know if diving would affect or potentially bring back the illness to its fullness or cause further damage to my inner ear ? My therapist is advising that It shouldn't affect me but again she's not a doctor.

    For those of you out there going through more difficult times than me, all I can
    tell you is stay POSITIVE and when those frustrating and negative thoughts enter your head, thing the other way and picture yourself getting better.

    Everyone take care and keep fighting,

    I too have Unilateral Vestibular weakness. I'm not a doctor, but my brother is a Master Diver, and he told me his training included restrictions on diving for people with vestibular disorders. I would suggest that you not just take my word for it, though.
    Look under the section on Laboratory Results.
