Welcome to mvertigo.org!
This is a support forum primarily for sufferers of Vestibular Migraine (VM), Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV) and Secondary Endolymphatic Hydrops (SEH) - essentially anyone who is suffering chronic dizziness and/or imbalance with migraines, though we warmly welcome those suffering from other inner ear and vestibular conditions.
On one level, sorry you are here, because we know just how awful, and sometimes how life-changing these conditions can be, but we are also glad you are here, because although we can’t instantly change your circumstances, we believe we can help make things easier for you, help you find the right treatment, lower your anxiety, learn more about your condition and hold your hand towards recovery. You can talk to fellow sufferers, always find someone understanding and know that you are not alone.
One of the great benefits you can enjoy on this forum is: anonymity. This is particularly poignant at this time because of the recent Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal. I personally DO NOT recommend you use FB Groups. Consider the potential impact to your credit rating, employment prospects and insurance costs by joining a FB Group that covers a chronic medical condtion!
