I had been suffering from what I had been told was vertigo for some years which seemed to be cured by tablets.
I would have months/years free from this vertigo before it returned. I had to go back to taking tablets.
I went to see an ENT consultant regarding this problem. I had various tests and a brain scan. It was then decided that the balance of my left ear had become useless and this was causing the problem. I was advised that eventually, the balance of the other ear would rectify this.
In July of 2018, I became quite ill with a new attack of vertigo which caused sickness, generally feeling unbalanced and dizzy on and off. I resorted once more to medication.
Through a distant family member, I heard about this 'DizzyCare Clinic' at Codsall where Samy Selvanayagam practiced. I made an appointment on November 10th, 2018 to see Samy to which, my daughter accompanied me.
Samy gave me various tests to do namely
a) Standing perfectly still
b) Looking up
c) Lying on a bed on each side whilst he took videography of my eyes.
d) Complete a tick sheet of various tasks which gave you a number out of 100.
He explained that taking medication for vertigo is not advisable as it would interfere with natural recovery.
He gave me various exercises including moving head side to side and up and down while looking at an X that was attached on a wall in front.
I saw him again on December 15th but I had to resort to medication during this time just for a few days. Samy then gave me a whole list of exercises to do many of them to do with balancing & eye positions.
I had not and have not had any dizziness since doing these exercises and so when I saw him again on January 2019 he discharged me.
I am still doing these exercises daily in the hope that my vertigo has been cured
