Dr Fox is 100% by far the best with her knowledge of MdDS. There are others too but for me they are so far away. Asheville is just 5 hours away. Ok more than that because Dr Fox requires me to not drive more than 1.5 hours without stopping to get out of the motion of the car. Motion reintroduces motion. Without stopping or using Valium to suppress the vestibular system for air travel, all we are doing is reintroducing the motion to our brain and making ourselves feel better. At least that’s the way I understand things.
Since my last treatment I feel 100% better. No symptoms. The brain fog -gone. Cognitive-back. Balance -back except when I stand for long time in straight upward position – per Dr Fox normal for everyone but with this disorder we are more aware.
It is just my opinion but I believe in the Gyrostim. I think Sharon would agree. But it may not be an option for everyone. Not everyone will benefit from this therapy. It is however worth a try. MdDS is the same diagnosis but we all have variants. So with this being experimental be aware it may or may not be your “cure”. Cure what does that mean after Gyrostim? It can mean you still have some balance issues but the migraines, brain fog, etc are gone. It could mean you are 90% better and feel really good and you can function now. It can mean you are 100% symptom free. Life return to somewhat normal to I am completely normal. Ok maybe you like me have never been normal but we are at least back to our own “normal”. It can also mean no improvement. That would be the worse case senario.
Be kind to yourself. Don’t beat yourself for trying to do more today than yesterday and ended up paying a price. You tried. Don’t let others dominate your thoughts by their inconsiderations to your disorder. Don’t give them any occupied space in your brain. They don’t get it until they get it!! Try not to focus only on the symptoms of MdDS. Relax, breath counting your breaths and clearing your mind. Enjoy the feeling of mindfulness.
