Hi, @nad28, nice to meet you, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. That is very rough that your vertigo has not gone away for one minute since March 2017. That is a long time to contend with vertigo.

When you mentioned you were diagnosed with vertigo, are you talking about benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vertigo/symptoms-causes/syc-20370055?

You mentioned you can't take any medication, as it makes you worse. Have you tried a number of medications that had side effects you didn't care to deal with?

Hi Lisa, thanks for your reply! I'm not sure about the BPPV, I must ask my doctor about it. Yes I've tried many medication such as Serc then I was prescribed Stemetil as the 1st one made me worse. Stemetil was as bad. Then i was on Stugeron, I actually couldn't cope how drugged I felt on Stugeron, I had hallucinations, it was pretty scary. Then I was back on Vertigon, all of them worked pretty bad on me as all of the drugs have side effects so we had to stop, I'm on completely natural remedies at the moment and doing yoga every week, I'm not doing too bad. Vertigo is still here ,it's draining me emotionally and physically as I have it for so long but I don't lose hope it will go away 1 day.
