Yes about 2 months in order to have more good days than bad but I did get good days when I first started the regime as well. I also thought I would feel better after a week and was quite depressed when that didn’t happen. My husband reminded me that Dr S had said it would be a bit up and down to start with - I had not heard him say that, but there were a few other things I didn’t pick up at the time so I am glad that I took my husband in with me. I was so stressed that day that I couldn’t focus on everything I was being told by Dr S. I think feeling spaced out and dreamy is quite common - some people describe it as brain fog - and I do get that sometimes when I am tired.
My main issue was head pressure and pulsating ears combined with a feeling of being unbalanced - i felt like I should be walking with my arms out so i didn’t list to the side. One of the test done by Dr S and the Physio I saw was to get me to stand with my eyes close and each time I fell to the side - quite unnerving - the physio called it positive Rhomberg and he was the one who suggested I needed to see a neurologist! I’m so glad I went to that physio as I might not have found Dr S straight away.
My balance is much better now and my head and ears have been feeling good, apart from this last few days because of the head cold.
I went on holiday just after I saw Dr S - a long drive up to the lake district - and I was dreading it because I was still feeling so weird - packing my clothes was a nightmare too as I couldn’t concentrate on what to pack! It did me good to get away, however, as I didn’t have to worry about anything and I think it helped. I am convinced that stress also contributed to my succumbing to MAV. So if you can get away with your BF it may help - see what Dr S recommends ? Fingers crossed!
