Anyone of us will tell you, stress plays a big role in kicking symptoms up, my VM started after a very stressful time for me(didnt need to be I just tried to do too much) , there was a bit of ear trauma in there too, so it was probably a combo of both. I had things under control for probably 5 or 6 months and then a few weeks ago tried to go back to my old job. The stress from that plus the environment set me pretty far back recovery wise. I notice especially now that Iā€™m super sensitive again, that the more stressed out I am the worse things are on a daily basis

Helen i would likento ask you with vm is it something we will have forever or is it periods of ok then not ok. Its so confusing to me. Yesterday i had the most excruciating ear pain and had heat on them for hrs the cold i cant take it. I need to know how to get better why did i relapse why have i had it for so long you know. I also get heart flutters did you get any of those. I dont know of im eating enough, i feel.weak, i dont know what to eat i have food fear im just so so lost and afraid.

I can tell from the way you write that you are extremely anxious about everything and I would suggest that you need to visit your own doctor as soon as you can arrange to do so and discuss all your health anxieties with him/her and be prepared to follow his advice on treatment which may include being prepared to take medication for both your health anxiety and the MAV if he/she thinks it is necessary. Iā€™m sure there are much better times ahead for you once you have achieved some control over this overwhelming anxiety. Helen
