I would get a second opinion. I also fell a couple of times from the vertigo. For a second opinion, I went to Mass Eye and Ear, which is like the premier facility in the US for ENT stuff, and the doctor there said -- walk, move, train your brain to rely on your eyes and proprioception to tell you where your body is in space.

> I'm starting to feel depressed. I had another vertigo attack, this time more vertigo and less disequilibrium so I didn't fall. But I followed up with my ENT and he basically said that my husband was right. I shouldn't be doing anything where I might fall. (Which means I shouldn't do anything). I shouldn't look at the computer much, moving my eyes. I shouldn't reach up for anything, or walk on a treadmill. I can't drive until he clears me for driving. He might put me in a collar so I can't move my head, which along with my arm sling will be quite a sight. It could be as long as two weeks before I can even hope to get cleared.
> I feel helpless and frustrated. My husband is being wonderful, but he is also feeling a bit frustrated I can tell. I like doing things for myself. I don't know how I'll be able to regularly see my therapist. My husband is willing to work at finding a time, and so is my therapist, but so far it's not proving easy. And I hurt my arm by accidentally trying to grab for something I dropped - pure instinct.
> I think I've definitely hit the whiny phase of recovery.
