P.s. The government scheme is actually a gp care plan which allows selected patients upto 5 free sessions with allied health professionals eg., physios, dietitians, podiatrists, etc. I've had access to services through my gp and I'm 54.

I'm sure it's still going mum did it last year. GP can refer you to a number of services ie - physio, psychologist not sure whom else but it's 5 appointments for free per year. I don't believe you have to be a pensioner BUT I could be wrong... :) it's happened once or twice before.. (being wrong I mean).. check with your GP

Rosa, Physio has helped mum so much, I think she had 3 or 5 appointments free thru the government scheme (needed a referral from her GP).. during the session her physio trained her how to do the exercises herself at home if she needs too

Hi, my mum had a similar thing. She was toss herself off a chair or the bed at times, really awful to watch. Other times, I would look into her eyes and it was like she was watching a tennis match of super duper fast forward. Mum had meds and also went to a physio. She was told that the crystals in her inner ear and stopped floating cause her balance problems and progressing to vertigo (can't remember the long and twisted name for it). She did Physio for about 6-7 sessions and now she's right as rain. Hope this help. xox

Labyrinthitis is usually caused by a viral infection, such as the common cold or flu, which spreads to the labyrinth.

Is this it Rosa? I hope you're feeling much better very soon. :hugs:

Hi Rosa, sorry to know you are having illness and discomfort. Sounds like Labyrinthitis which happens when inner ear gets inflamed and then causes dizziness etc. I have had this and it isn't nice. I really hope you are back to normal soon but please rest because you've had a nasty virus and you need time to recover. Sending a hug. :hugs:
