I was diagnosed with MAV three days ago and while in some ways the diagnosis was a relief, finally I knew why I had been feeling dizzy every day for months, it also feels very restricting. I am also taking Ami 10mg but still feeling pretty dizzy (it's only been three days tho so...), I was wondering if any of you do any kind of specific exercise for balance? I really can't bear the dizzy spells and just want to get back to my old life.
Also a very long shot but do any of you have any experience of diving with MAV? I worked as an underwater photographer and diving was pretty much my life before the vertigo and although my doc is sure that I can go back to doing everything I did before I feel like my confidence has been destroyed, I am worried about having some kind of anxiety attack in the water or obviously getting dizzy which will probably cause anxiety as well.
One last question, does anyone else suffer much worse from anxiety when trying to fall asleep? I find the sensation of falling asleep is similar to that of the beginning of an attack of dizziness so my body jerks me awake and I start to panic.
It's really great to read everyone else's experience and know that I'm not the only one battling with this !!!
