Hi!! I haven’t been on the forums since I signed up on the VeDA site, so I’m just introducing myself & sharing my story! 

In June 2021, I woke up to room spinning vertigo when I rolled over to my right side. I’d been sick a few weeks prior to this. After seeing a PCP, it was twelve days later when I saw an ENT & was diagnosed with BPPV. The Epley maneuver was performed twice for bilateral BPPV. Each time I sat up I didn’t feel right. Head pressure, dizziness, tinnitus, & nausea. At the end of July 2021, I had vestibular testing which revealed vestibular migraine. By this time, more symptoms had continued popping up & worsening. I felt that off-balance, 24/7 drunk feeling.

After seeing another ENT in mid-August & starting medication, I wasn’t improving much & remained dizzy 24/7. In mid-September 2021, I was diagnosed with PPPD. 

In November 2021, I made it to my ninth doctor, but third neurologist & finally was prescribed a treatment plan that’s been working! I got involved with VeDA as an Ambassador to help bring awareness to vestibular disorders.
