I think it depends on what's wrong. Last time I had labrynthitis from an ear infection that had weakened one inner ear. He prescribed exactly that.

Yet this time because it came so literally out of the blue and I fell with no warning whatsoever, he thinks it might be the positional vertigo with that little crystal in the ear. In which case I'd do a set of specific exercises under controlled circumstances meant to dislodge the little blighter. The rest of the time I'd be protecting myself from falls by decreasing the chance of the inner ear fluid sloshing around.

The problem is that there was a two week waiting period for the audiologists to run the tests. Last time I think he had me in in a couple of days. Maybe he's working with fewer audiologists?

My experience so far is that the eye jumping seems to have stopped, but I still feel off balance and a bit dizzy after turning in bed or holding my head certain ways. Nothing serious since that second attack. He's had me cut down on salt and caffeine in case it's Meniere's and I'm still on the anti-vertigo med. I don't think anything I'm experiencing now is dangerous to myself or others. But they just want to make sure that I'm not likely to have another major attack.
