24/7 Dizziness Occipital Stroke and Cerebellar Stroke

Posted by leslee1971 @leslee1971, Jan 6, 2019

Hi Everyone,
I research every couple of months to see how my dizziness can be helped. Has anyone found relief for their 24/7 dizziness? Coming up on 3 years. I'm sad.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases Support Group.

It was three years last May for me, so I am going on four and have no relief. Some of it is my meds but dizzy is always there, driving, in bright lights, in stores, in noisy places, etc. at first a scapolamine patch behind an ear helped a lot but I became allergic to the adhesive and could not continue with them. It was murderous at first without it……some how I got through it and now Lorazepam at a small dose every day seems to somehow relax my tight neck muscles……


Hello @leslee1971, welcome to Connect. You may also want to check out the following discussion on chronic dizziness, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/hello-_-my-name-is-kim-i-am-33-years-old-and/. @lakelifelady, did Lorazepam give you some relief for your dizziness as well, or just your neck muscles? @leslee1971, have you found anything to help take the edge off of your dizziness? Have you spoke with your medical provider and have they tried anything?


Lorazepam has a positive effect on taking the edge off dizziness. Without it I am very full headed with lots of tinnitus and dizziness. After all this time I am no doubt addicted to it but do not increase my dosage which is only .5 MG Tab, which I halve for am and pm. Thank you for the link.


I have been recently diagnosed with Basilar Artery Stenosis and have been seeing a neurologists. we are using conventional medicine, diet and exercise to work on reducing the blockage. I am dealing with what I call "mild brain fog" occasionally so I am interested in hearing more on this topic.
