Today we are going to answer the frequently asked question (FAQ) that I often hear from people which is, ‘”Will my dizziness ever go away?”
The answer that I tell everyone that I meet is that I am confident that we can reduce, if not completely eliminate, their symptoms of dizziness.
There are some cases where I have met patients who have been living with dizziness or vertigo for 20 years, 30 years, sometimes even 40 years, and they’ve seen 14, 23, maybe even 55 physicians before I’ve met them.
They have been suffering with the idea that there was no hope.
One of the things that I would like to reassure those out there who are suffering with dizziness or vertigo today is that there is hope if you are able to find a Vestibular Specialist – or someone who really specializes in evaluating the inner ear – as well as other specialist providers that may need to be involved in your case, in addition to a Vestibular Specialist.
Some patients require evaluation by other specialists as well, I would highly encourage you to continue to seek out health care by those who are knowledgeable and skilled in evaluating dizziness and vertigo until you know for sure whether or not your symptoms can be reduced, if not completely eliminated.
If you are out there suffering with dizziness or vertigo, even if you have been suffering for years and gone to many different health care providers, I highly encourage you not to give up hope, but to continue seeking out the proper healthcare and learn how to take care of yourself to reduce, if not completely eliminate, your symptoms of dizziness and vertigo.
