As Tranquility said, there is a version of the diet in Heal you Headache. You will also find various versions on the Internet. Be careful not to let yourself become overwhelmed with the many different versions. Some of them are so inclusive they barely leave you anything to eat. And, you will find contradictions between the different versions. I recommend just using the diet from the book. It is the one my neurologist told me to follow. It is straightforward and not excessive. The one thing you should definitely start weaning yourself off of, if you consume it, is caffeine. Giving up my morning coffee had the largest impact on me when I was experiencing bad vertigo like you are. Everyone is different, but you should definitely try avoiding caffeine for a while. I believe all the experts agree on that one. If you do a search on this forum, you will find quite a bit about the diet and the food triggers some of the members have identified for themselves.
I’m sorry you are having so much trouble with the vertigo. I remember what it was like to have that symptom rule your life.

This is some very good advice. I have been following the information provided the direction in Heal Your Headache since October and know that I have marked improvement. Not completely gone but manageable at this time.
Some things that you need to try and do that will help is .
Go to bed at the same time each night and get your rest.
Drink plenty of water )I drink at least 64 ounces of water a day.
Eat four or five small meals throughout the day. The diet will give you what you can and cannot eat. I also stay away from things really high in simple sugars as that seems to make my symptoms worse.
I will second cutting out the Caffeine and all MSG.
Try putting a cold pack on the back of your neck when symptoms are really bad.
I have added supplements to my daily regiment. Magnesium, Vitiam D, Cq10, B Complex Vit.
Try once you feel better to get some exercise, not a lot just walking a bit.
I am so sorry you are going this I know how horrible it can make you feel. You will probably find more information here than from any other source and you will find those who understand.
We are here to listen and let you know what has worked for us , although we are all diff when it comes to medications we can at least give you our experiences.
Your anxiety is going to be bad until you get some relief and some manageability to this, I think most have gone thorough this. Try to understand what is going on and learn to deep breath and try and relax. Get plenty of rest and let others help you , don;t try and push yourself to do more than you can at this time.
It is going to take some time, some understanding , some prayers and some real discipline on your part to follow the diet and make some lifestyle changes to improve.
Best of luck to you and we are here for you when you need to vent.
