Keeping your body balanced should be an automatic process. Having a vestibular issue means you have to spend energy trying to stay stable while doing everyday tasks. Of course you’re tired! You may also experience brain fog and have difficulty concentrating.
Vertigo, dizziness and imbalance are invisible and unpredictable symptoms. Unfortunately, when you are dealing with conditions that do not show up on a blood test or scans and cannot be poked and prodded, it can seem like the only logical conclusion is that is it all in your head. It’s not. It is important to know that these indicators are not imaginary.
Another important thing to understand that these symptoms can affect you both physically and psychologically. It’s scary when the room starts moving for no apparent reason! Vertigo, dizziness and imbalance affect people differently in both the way they experience them physically, but also in their psychological manifestation. And while it is important to understand your physical symptoms, it is equally important to understand your psychological symptoms as they can often trigger and/or exacerbate your physical ones.
