Discussions that mention valium

I agree with Scott & Subs...anxiety gets mixed in with this, but it is the dizzy problem that is fueling it. When I first got dizzy, I remember I tried drinking some wine--I was thinking, ok I'm freaking out, maybe this is in my head. Bad idea. I normally love wine and love its relaxing effects, but the wine made me feel much dizzier...haven't had any since. Also, the xanax I took at the beginning of this thing never touched the dizziness. It sounds like valium and klonopin and maybe xanax too can help the dizzies in some way, but at least during the most acute phase for me--while I felt calmer with the xanax--my dizziness was still in full force.

I believe our anxiety and depression will both abate as we get control over the dizzy monster...

But I guess what scares me is all this talk about brainstem function and things changing in your brain. It sounds like something irreversible. You guys will all have to pardon me, I'm going through a rough time and everything just seems so hopeless right now. I know that will change. I just want to get better, as we all do.
