Hi frobvt
I got the air plugs. My app tells me to wear them every day. I am taking an anti-depressant along with magnesium and B2 every night before bed. For the first time in my life, I am having trouble sleeping. Waking around 2 or 3am and not able to get back. I am exhausted at work. I am still very dizzy at night and sometimes for a couple hours during the day. I have to wonder if I will ever be the same again. Just putting one foot in front of the other and plugging along. How long have you had this and is there a promise of ever getting rid of it?

Hi cmg, glad you got the earplugs, are they helping? Because of where we live, the barometric pressure changes a lot.
I basically (sometimes) wear mine during the day, and also usually wear them to bed, 90 % of the time. Another consideration is, you're getting a lot of reminders to wear those earplugs, because your threshold is set to the lowest set point, which is 0.03. I believe WeatherX defaults to 0.08? At any rate, one needs to experiment to see what works best for them.
That's too bad that you're having trouble sleeping. Did you recently start taking this antidepressant? What are the side effects of that? Would one of them be insomnia?
Basically, I had trouble with the vestibular problems for a year or more after I had gotten my concussion, and it has eased off quite a bit.
Since we are all different with different health challenges, and sometimes autoimmune diseases and other issues plus medications, it's hard to say? No, there isn't a promise of getting rid of this per se, that I know of. Only your doctor can help you to fine-tune this, and it takes a bit of commitment such as keeping good logs/diary of all of the measures you are doing, and seeing what is helping, and what isn't? Does that make sense?
Things have mostly diminished for me to where I feel much better physically. But let the barometric pressure get wild and the weather become very changeable, and I will have a little bit of dizziness and trouble.
Please keep me posted, I'm hoping and praying you'll be feeling better as time passes!
