Hello everyone! I was part of this group over fb but I'm doing a social media cleanse. I'm 28, male, Engineer. I've been suffering from this crap for about 2 years now. When It first went down I thought it was my heart so I've been to plenty of cardiologists and done plenty of tests only to find out that my hear is perfectly fine.
This all started after a panic attack I had back in 2016... after that things have not been the same.
I started to take Effexor about 5 months ago and it did wonders for me! a serious rehabilitation. I started feeling better than ever before.
I do however still get these "unsteady" or "dizzy" feelings when I don't get good sleep.... It sucks! If I sleep well I feel amazing. If I don't sleep well, I feel like someone is pulling the floor from under my feet. I get that feeling you get when your going down some stairs and there is an unexpected extra step that you miss....
I believe that if I had great sleep every day I'd be doing great. How do you guys cope with sleep problems? does lack of sleep exacerbate your symptoms?
I do feel that getting good rest is helpful in any case. In this situation, good rest is hard to come by. It does help me to tolerate the day better, and the feelings of dizziness, motion, wooziness. For me, the biggest component is getting over the fear factor. The fear of feeling woozy, that I might fall or pass out. The fear part is the worst for me. 3a

eliuri: well, now that Mt Sinai hospital has developed a successful treatment for Mdds, a long cruise might induce the Mdds..so ill rock in opposite direction...that will of course get rid of the CSD by neutralizing it...So anyhow, bring on those ships

ccube1234: The spinning has not stopped. I'm following up with doctor in a couple of weeks. I took 3 Zoloft today. It should take a couple of days to see if it takes effect.

charliegirl: Hi everyone. I am so happy I have found this forum. I am a female, 56 yrs. old. I know I have BPPV, but this is a real eye opener and a real explanation for my constant feeling of unsteadiness between BPPV attacks.

woodsy: why is there not a simple explanation ? My doctor does not know the answer, how is this condition treated?

levade: The benzos work! Oddly enough a low dose of halcion in the morning got rid of dizziness right away! ( But my Dr wouldn't give it to me because it's for sleeping.....gave me Xanax instead........which didn't work nearly as well.
