Frustrated

Does anybody else have balance issues? I feel like I'm walking across a merry-go-round. As the day progresses it gets worse unless I lay down in the dark. After begging doctors, i finally had imaging and a vng. I lost 22 percent function in my vestibular nerve. My energy is nowhere what it used to be. Too much stimuli makes me spin more. I may be losing my job over this. Im a career firefighter now working behind the the desk. Vestibular therapy helped a bit to where I'm not falling over. But I'm now counting my steps and anticipating the dizzy triggers.
