    The prognosis is good. It usually takes a few weeks to recover. You may have a recurrence but that's not too common.

    You have an excellent prognosis. Some symptoms can be helped with Physical Therapy, so if after several weeks you are not back to 100% you can ask your doc to send you to PT.

    Site not intended for medical advice. Expect a thread close shortly. That said...

    Limiting your use of vestibular suppressants will help speed the process of central compensation and speed your return to normal functioning.

    I would say that if you're primary source of medical advice is a forum on the interweb, your prognosis is poor.
