weight gain mav and 25/7 symptoms


#21

Key is indulging yourself into something that you love doing or hobby. I recently took up fasion to update my wardrobe to modern standards and pretty occupy with it even at work lol. I even went clothes shopping even though store lights bother me and makes me dizzy but i still went. Afterwards my mood got lifted because i had all these clothes and looked great in them lol. Same story at the barbershop. Felt little dizzy and clippers against my head sounded loud but after a great haircut and seeing myself, it just lifts my spirit i almost forget i have this crap.

Hi

Sure, that’s part of it but I bet deep down inside, and you weren’t conscious of it at the time, something’s saying ‘I’m in charge here MAV. I’m winning’. Great psychological boost.

Have you found one that works for you?

Have you ever found any med in all those years that has helped you?

Yes, I take Propranolol but what works for me won’t necessarily work for you. Also the drugs can take months to work, nothing with MAV is fast it seems.

Hv you been given a MAV diagnosis and suggestions of what preventative to try or are you still waiting to see specialist. You need to try for a diagnosis that you yourself can believe in. First step.
