I've had CNS Lupus for 15 years now. A couple of years ago I had a serious bout of vertigo accompanied by a 60 percent hearing loss. That went away, but now I'm having symptoms again with headaches and neck pain. i had an mri
of my brain 6 months ago and showed no signs. Is there anything I can do besides take antivert? I'm a stay at home dad with two kids and this is a troubling thing as I'm scared about driving, falling on my ass without people thinking
I'm drunk etc.

Thank you

So sorry your having such trouble. Vertigo sounds aweful!! I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions for you, but I wanted to welcome you to the forum. There are a few other men who are members here, I'm sure they will be happy to have another brother here!!

Hi Ross.  Welcome to our forum.  I've been having difficulty driving lately and I have to pull off the road and close my eyes for a few minutes.  This helps me focus.  Bring something for the kids to play with in case you need to stop.  As for the falling, I wear stable shoes and walk with a cane.  The cane sure isn't fool proof because I've fallen using it, but it's a great help.  Take care, Butterflake
