hi scott and all,
Just a quick question for you........recently i have been 100%. Am on 20mg of cipramil and have been feeling on top of the world!!!!Been doing alsorts,shopping , super markets etc all the things i enjoy.Then the other day i received some bad news regading family members and was upset about it.I now have mild dizzies and headaches. Is it possible the stress of worrying could bring the symptoms about again. I must stress that the dizzies are nowhere near as bad as they once were,but from going from 100% it does affect you.I have been trying to stay calm about things but even my sleep is affected.I am an active sleep walker at the best of times but recently i am up and about during the night which is tiring!All i can think of is one minute im fine then the next im not,its gotta be stress related?

Re: scott..............

Hi Maria,

>>>... it's gotta be stress related?

Definitely. Stress is the number one enemy whether recovering from VN or if you have MAV. I'm now of the opinion that Cipramil is a vestibular migraine killer above all else (obviously removing anxiety is a major bonus and necessary for compensation as well). Maria, I was doing brilliantly earlier this year until my relationship came unstuck. BIG emotional stress out and, of course, the vestibular carpet was pulled not long after. I'm still not back to where I was and it's been over 3 months! But you will bounce back quickly again. My incident involved very strong and prolonged stress hence the serious set back. Try to resolve whatever it is causing you to feel upset although sounds as though you already have. There's definitely no room for harbouring resentment or holding grudges with a vestibular problem. We are forced to become better masters of our emotions. The price is too high if we aren't.

Just stay focused on being well again and don't worry about this small blip. It'll vanish again soon.

Best ... Scott

ps I'm wondering if I should go to a full dose of Cipramil after hearing of your rapid recovery. I've never used more than 15 mg. Might wait for this cold to burn out first and then decide.

Smile Re: scott..............

hi scott,
thanks for the reply,is reassuring to get advice from a fellow dizzy! Sorry for directing questions at you,but i know you are on cipramil also and the advice you give is so right on. Yeah 20mg has been working so well for me recently,just think the stress has triggered dizzies off again.It feels so good to feel normal again and then when you have blip its awful as you get used to feeling so good and dont want it to end! Sleep is a factor for me to. If i have a crappy nights sleep i know i will pay the next day.My mood also makes a difference to how i am in myself,if its a miserable day that puts a downer on things straight away.Doc is quite happy for me to stay on 20mg for time being,they keep reveiwing me.Hope your cold goes soon for you and maybe try 20mg see how it goes. Thanks again for advice.
