I am voluntary housebound as going 'out' usually increases all my symptoms - Nausea, steadiness, dizziness, tinnitus. Many people seem to believe that that route is abnormal and there's something wrong with not engaging the world outside my front door (yes, I have friends and family who come over). I'm thinking it's ok if it help my symptoms. How many or you have that tendancy or have come to stay home more often since you first started your symptoms? Does going out even affect them?
