Notably, the majority of patients who participated in the study voluntarily stopped IV saline within six months of starting it, because their symptoms were improved enough to not need it.

After struggling with constant dizziness for the past few years, seeing multiple specialists, and having many tests done, I was diagnosed last week with PPPD (Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness). Part of the treatment is Vestibular Rehab Physiotherapy, which involves doing exercises 5-6 times/day and seeing a vestibular therapist once a month.
I had my first Vestibular Therapy session this week, which was an hour of tests and exercises. My therapist was really nice and went really slow. She stopped me half way through the tests because my dizziness baseline was supposed to stay below 2/5, and mine was 4/5 by the end.
My friend came with me for moral support, and waited patiently with me as I recovered afterward in a dark, quiet room.
My name is Lisa and this is my life with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)
