Having seen Dr Surenthiran back in January this year and starting on pizotifen as well as the diet and VRT, I had gotten to the point of being almost completely better. Only slight dizziness after walking for a couple of miles, but back in the gym , loving getting back in shape and no issues whist on the treadmill jogging etc. I had my life back almost.
But on Tuesday I went off to my art class as usual in the morning, gym in the afternoon then out for beer with my partner that evening. Wednesday morning got that sinking through the floor feeling and slightly off balance, but then by the afternoon it got a lot worse where I was having a seriously bad vertigo attack, managed to go upstairs to bed and couldn’t move my head left or right without everything turning and spinning. I took ibuprofen and some pizotifen. Thankfully it eased off after some 5 hours of intense vertigo.
I thought I’d gotten so much better, after months of VRT as well as the pizotifen. Dr Surenthiran said that if I stayed on it I could expect it never to return. Really?
I have already phoned for an appointment with him, as I feel so shattered by having such a severe acute relapse. I was due to start work next week, only 1 day per week to start with, but not so sure now.
Has anyone else been well for several months on medication and had a relapse? Has anyone had a relapse and then gone on to have a full and sustained recovery? I hope so.
