I'm suffering from vertigo diagnosed on Monday. Thankfully spinning has stopped but my balance still affected when I walk. Will it take long to recover. I'm quite scared to be honest.

This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you have vertigo.

do you have excessive anxiety symptoms? this can cause vertigo.

have you had vertigo before?

have you had your inner ears checked for fluid and infection?

do you have sinus congestion or infection?

I now have it five days. Was recovering but had chocolate on the third night as I didn't feel like eating anything else and I think it worsened my symptoms.

you need to talk to your doctor about treatment for your anxiety symptoms

there are medications which can help decrease your anxiety

this will also help your vertigo as well.

chocolate has lots of sugar and caffeine, which can make you more hyper and anxious.

bad idea for a meal.
