Ive been through this also. Trust me when I tell you.. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!! It will get worse if you dont do something about it. Not only will you be housebound, but you will start to get very depressed . Yes, you do feel better staying inside because you dont have to deal with the symptoms of panic. There were times i would not even step into my backyard and walk across the lawn because I would fear the dizziness and heart racing. Today, I drive and go places that I use to dread going, even with a friend or family memeber. If I get the spins, I would just sit back somewhere and deal with the symptoms. Most of the time, the feelings went away. If they didnt, I would go back to my car and go home. BUT, at least I tried. It takes practice to stay outside your little world. Please dont stay inside. So what, you need a cane or cart ! Use it, get out. You will gain the confidence to do more and more.. the more you push yourself. The dizziness gets much much worse with panic. Sometimes we fail to see this and blame it all on the menieres. In our minds we only think "what if".....you cant talk yourself out of doing things. You need to push yourself to the limits. In time, your time outside the house will get longer and longer. I do take xanex daily for panic . I use to feel quilty for useing it. Not any more. I feel like a better person when I can conquer a new task, Like, driving further and further away from home. Its becomes a high and makes you stronger.
