Discussions that mention valium

Dizziness / Vertigo board

Hi Kathy,

Sure feel for your situation being stuck in bed. You end up feeling like a prisoner in your own body.....and it can bring on depression if you are normally outgoing. That drove me insane last year wondering when it would end (which it does thankfully). I must agree with CL...try not too stay bed bound too much if you can help it. I used to find that eating a meal would calm symptoms down and then I'd move around. It would almost always reduce dizzies and force the brain to sort out the mess. It's a long, relentless process but it will happen. Also, you might consider knocking back a valium *occasionally* to give yourself a break. It will calm the vestibular system and you! But again, use them sparingly.

Good luck......Scott :cool:
